Blog Week Entry #4: Where Are They Now?

Whee!  Day Four of Blog Week is upon us!  Today we'll be talking about:

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.

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 was in which you hope that item is still doing good for its owner or the cause it was made to support.

Have you seen this hat?
Missing:  Awesome Hand-Knit Hat

Last seen:  Several years ago in a booth at the Grafton Pub in Lincoln Square

Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Vaa

Pattern: Foliage by Emilee Mooney, Fall 2007 Knitty

Last known whereabouts
I lost this the last time my parents came to town.  It was a blustery day in December and we went to the Grafton for lunch.  When it came time for us to leave, my hat had magically disappeared into the dark recesses of our booth.  I suspect it fell on the floor under the table, but I really wasn't in the mood to crawl around on the floor while feeling around blindly in the shadows.  I told myself that I could just knit another one - I still had plenty of yarn leftover.  I haven't to date, however.


  1. Hey Stef - you just need a couple more hand knit items to complete your ensemble!
