2KCBWDAY3 Tidy mind, tidy stitches - day three of knitting and crochet blog week
Where are they now? – 2KCBWDAY4
Whatever happened to your __________?
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.

So to answer this prompt I decided to go way, way back.  8 or 9 years back.  To when I was just learning to knit.  I hadn't discovered LYS's yet, I bought all my tools and yarn at AC Moore or Michaels, occasionally JoAnns or Rag Shop.  I learned using Debbie Stoellers Stitch and Bitch and magazines (knit mags have tutorials in the back usually) I bought a circular needle and some yarn.  i was going to make a hat.  At this point I had made 3 , maybe 4 projects, so I wasn't going to use a pattern.(ha!)  I didn't have Double Pointed Needles so I ended up using a very awkward almost magic loop to get started.  I increased until it looked hat shaped.  At least flat and folded in half it looked hat shaped.  When put on a human head it was so beyond wonky it wasn't funny.  I also had no clue how to close the top off.  i put it on my Wile E Coyote doll (He's 6ft tall and hangs out in the dining room) to take a picture- and low and behold while it wasn't human head shaped - it was perfect on a cartoon coyote!!  So it's been on his head ever since.

  1. I adore Wile E. And his hat ;)

    Sorry to give you a momentary coronary with my last post. Sure was a hoot to write though!
