- Top Down Cardigan: This is the first adult size sweater that I knit and wore regularly. I wore it so much that it ended up having holes in it. It wasn’t the most flattering or stylish but it was warm and I made it.
- Celestarium: I knit this on a whim. The idea was so cool. I had some yarn I thought would work. Beads were purchased. The end result is amazing. But I’ve never worn it, not one time. I have the yarn and beads to knit Southern Skies, the companion piece, but haven’t had the urge to cast on.
- The final project I don’t have a photo of as it’s packed away. Back in 2001 we applied to adopt a baby. We expected a wait of 8-10 months but as that time extended I cast on a little white hooded sweater with a zipper up the back. I wasn’t an experienced knitter back then. I used big box store yarn. When it was finished my mother sewed in the zipper. A short time later, in February 2003, yes double the expected wait, we learned that our baby, a boy, had been born in Seoul. I packed up the sweater, a few little store bought outfits, a soft toy and gifts for his foster family and mailed them. In June 2003 we picked N up at Logan Airport and among his few belongings was the tiny white sweater in a zip top bag. I packed the bag away, unopened, so one day N can open it.
How about you? What is your favorite project? Do you have a hard time picking just one?
