Where are they now? 2KCBWDAY4

The topic for day four of the 2nd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week:
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.
I don't really have any trouble letting go of an item that I've knitted and gifted. My step-dad taught me years ago that once you give somebody something, it's not yours anymore and that person is free to do whatever they want with it. He doesn't knit, so I'm not sure if he'd change his tune about knitted gifts, but I doubt it. He's a pretty straight-up kind of person. I tend to knit it, give it, and forget it. But I SERIOUSLY love these gift tags. All that being said, if you knit an unappreciative person a very looooooong scarf, you could always strangle them with it. Just sayin'...

This is a short post and not 100% on topic, because DD had all four wisdom teeth yanked today. She hates being fussed over, so I give her space when she needs it, but my mind is mostly on her and not blogging. This would be the perfect time to give her another knitting lesson, with her being stoned on Vicodin and not able to run from me, but maybe I'll save that for tomorrow.

  1. Hope your DD is feeling better soon.

    You really DON'T want to teach her to knit while she's on Vicodin. You'll both be hateful towards knitting when the drugs wear off. LOL Friends don't let friends knit stoned, you know.

  2. ouch! at least she has some good drugs to help with the pain. I'm not sure about the knitting though, lol, maybe you should wait 'til tomorrow.

  3. Poor baby, I hope she'll feel much better tomorrow!

    I agree about the gifting - once you give it away, it's up to them whether to use it, keep it, whatever. I admit though I was somewhat unhappy when a friend sold (at a garage sale we did TOGETHER) one of the gifts I had carefully and thoughtfully picked out for her baby. (Sold it for 50 cents, too. It's a good thing we had been friends for a long time.)

  6. I went through the same thing with my teenager in February. No fun. She did learn why it is important to follow the directions and actually boil the water to make Jell-O, though, so that's a bonus.

Let it all hang out. I usually respond, but if you're in the witness protection program and your email address is a secret, maybe check back here to see if I left a snappy comeback.
