Prompt: Write about the fate of a past knitting project.
I give quite a bit of my knitting/crochet away, but I keep a lot, too. One of my oldest projects is one of my favorites. I completed these Cable Rib socks in February 2007. This is when they were brand new…
Four years later, where are they now?
Believe it or not, they’re still around, but no longer in such pristine condition since I’ve worn them who knows how many times. The bottoms are thinning, the yarn is looking a little worse-for-wear.
But four years? I’m quite happy with how long they’ve lasted. They’ve accompanied me on many chilly mornings and nights, whether I was on my way to make coffee or cozied up on the couch, reading a book. I've knit one other pair of socks out of Regia Silk and they were for my husband. He doesn't wear his socks nearly as much as I wear mine, so his will probably last twenty years.
Slipping these onto my feet was never a disappointment. Four years later, I still love 'em. Pin It Now!
