Hi friends! As promised, I’m back with Part 2 of my #mostworn post. As a quick refresher, or if you’re just joining us, Kate of Rosalind Craft Supplies suggested a few months ago that we should celebrate our most worn knits. She nominated me to share my highly loved knits in the categories of torso, neck, and feet (you can read her whole excellent post here). Last Friday, I wrote about my #mostworn sweater. Today, I’m sharing my most worn accessories.
How’s your weekend going?
It’s been quiet around these parts — errands, laundromat (blergh!), cooking, and a little bit of knitting.
But I’m not here to tell you about what I’ve been working on at the moment — I’m here to share a finished sweater: my Rocquaine Pullover!
Back in November, my lovely friend Kate of Rosalind Craft Supplies had an idea. A really good idea. Let’s document, reflect on, and celebrate the knits we wear the most. I’ll let her tell you more about it:
… the vast majority of knits we see on Instagram and Ravelry are new creations, fresh off the needles. What do those lovely knits look like after they’ve been worn for a while? Did the garter stitch section droop? Did that merino yarn pill? Did that dye fade? More so, I thought it was about time we cherished clothes that are looking a little worn in. With all this in mind, I’m introducing: the #mostworn blogalong.It’s a simple concept. I’m going to write about the knitwear I’ve worn the most in the past couple of years in three categories (torso, neck and feet) and take photos of their current appearance. Then I’m going to nominate two friends to do the same. And hopefully they’ll do the same. And their friends will do the same. And so on and so forth. We’ll fill the blogosphere with photos of well-worn, well-loved handknits.
Hi friends, and happy Sunday!
I finished my Asagi last weekend, and I’ve been wanting to share it with you!
