I digress! The coffee is fantastic and MUCH needed and I am now armed to get through my day!
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 it’s owner or the cause it was made to support.
I used to do a lot of 'crafting'. I painted, made stuff, invented stuff, did woodworking etc... and I have nothing to show for it. I gave everything away when I was younger because the giving made the other person feel good and I didn't know that keeping would make me feel good. Socially we're considered selfish if we don't hand over whatever it is we have that someone else wants (within reasonable value, and unfortunately most of the world doesn't give the proper value to hand made items). I like keeping all these shawls and hats and scarves for myself. Not because I may ever use them but because making myself something feels good and for me, looking back on the items that I made by actually looking at the physical item is rewarding to me!
So I'm happy to say that I know EXACTLY what has happened to every item I've ever knitted and I hope to be able to say that next year as well!
