Knitting Past

Posted by Nanc

Looking back, there have been some significant knits that, although completed and enjoyed by their recipients, I never blogged. These projects were all knit in 2007, most in the later part of the year, ta’ boot. But still, that’s no excuse.

(Long and picture heavy post.)

Matty’s Vest

I am incredibly proud of this knit, and I may encourage Matt to wear it more than he really wants to. But any fuss from him has me threatening never to knit for him again. Is that wrong?

    Wonderful work Nanc. Each of these creations– especially Matty’s vest — is even more beautiful in person.

    Gorgeous! I have to say, I’m very proud to be the recipient/wearer of your first fair isle project — it’s my favorite hat EVER! And Matty’s vest is just beautiful . . . makes me almost want to copycat you. Also, I love that picture of Rosie in Lindsay’s beret . . . hee!

    Great work as always. Ever since you visited, I’ve been inspired to knit. I just never seem to have 2 free hands 🙁 Keep showing me your beautiful work, and keep the inspiration alive!

    Neal doesn’t wear the vest I knit for him very often, either. But he wears his hats and scarves all the time so I don’t take it personally (even if it did take forever to knit!)

    Love the pirate hat – I’ll make one some day!

    It is absolutely normal to threaten not to knit for your husband if things aren’t working out like you thought. It took over a year for my husband to get his second sock! The man has unusually shaped toes. Totally his fault, not mine. :o)
