Do you associate a project with an emotional event in your life? Maybe the birth of a grandbaby , the illness of a spouse, graduation of a child?
I dug out a ufo this weekend.
I think this was last seen while waiting for my mom’s heart surgery. Two weeks ago, her SO Joe suffered cardiac arrest. He’s recovering, thank God! But it brought out the garter stitch, stress relief, project once again.
Now that we’re weathered that stressful time and we’ve been through a fantastic event learning “lever” knitting with none other than Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. swoon, laugh, learn — what a great time!
Now, I’m ready to start another life event project…. TWINS! My son and daughter-in-law are due in December. Aren’t they cute! The new superwash sport and 60 baby knits book will be getting a workout.
And I can’t finish this post without a great rasta hat shot!
Before the baby knitting commences, I’m going to knit another short sleeve summer project. I’m leaning toward a knitty.com pattern with Tatamy Tweed DK starting June 1. More to come….
What event knitting do you do or have you done?
