Knitting & Crochet Blog Week: Day 4

Day Four: 31st March. Where are they now?

Whatever happened to your __________?

Write about the fate of a past knitting project. Whether it be something that you crocheted or knitted for yourself or to give to another person. An item that lives with you or something which you sent off to charity.

There are a lot of different aspects to look at when looking back at a knitting project and it can make for interesting blogging, as much of the time we blog about items recently completed, new and freshly completed. It is not so often that we look back at what has happened to these items after they have been around for a while.

How has one of your past knits lived up to wear. Maybe an item has become lost. Maybe you spent weeks knitting your giant-footed dad a pair of socks in bright pink and green stripes which the then ‘lost’. If you have knit items to donate to a good cause, you could reflect on the ways in which you hope that item is still doing good for it’s owner or the cause it was made to support.

This is an easy one. Most of the grocery bags are still here, except one that I sold to someone, one that I sent to my sister, and one that my father uses in his booth. Mine are all holding up pretty well after many rounds of being tossed in the trunk of the car, stuffed with stuff, and being washed on hot. Also still here are the waterbottle cozy and Noro scarf.

Two of the baby blankets were given to the people for whom they were made. The others went to charity, as did the Homespun scarves.

Three afghans are here; one that I’d originally given to my grandparents and got back when they died, and two that never made it out of the house. The one for my grandparents and the green one need to be re-crocheted, since when I made them I crocheted pretty loosely. The newest one just needs the ends woven in. Another afghan went to a friend in Pittsburgh, and I don’t know where it is now.

The guacamol is, I believe, residing on top of my parents’ piano.
