Today's post is a reflection on what has become of one (or more) of your knitted items. Most of my knitted items end up for myself, my mom, my sister, my friend Carly, or my husband. Very few knitted items make it out of that circle. I also tend to only knit things for other people if they have requested them. I was going to write a post about the three clapotises (clapoti??) that I knit, but I wasn't able to get pictures of all of them. I initially knit one for myself and then my mom and sister wanted one. Maybe that will be a story for another post.
However, I do have a picture of my calorimentry. I knit this around April 2007, just about 4 years ago now, but it only recently got a home! This was a super fun and super fast knit. The colors of the noro are great in this piece and I love them to death, but it wasn't something that I pictured myself wearing. So, I never did wear it. I didn't even put the button on it. However, when my sister spied this piece last December, her mind was set and she called it hers. I sewed a button on calorimetry on the spot! She immediately put it on and when her time to leave came, calorimetry went with her. I didn't get any photos of her wearing it (well, I did get some with my phone, but the quality is crappy at best). But, I'm happy that my calorimetry finally found a home.
