Most Used Knits & Norovember

Chris wanted to see the handknit items we use the most, so here's my photo. The black and white is a 6 year old ribbed scarf I knit right after my heart attack. It was so boring (and at that time I didn't allow myself multiple projects which affected my interest in the project!) it took two years to complete (yes, it's Lion Wool-Ease). The navy is my very first Lace Triangle shawl (yup, Wool-Ease again - but that time I learned my lesson), and under it the light blue is the Highland Triangle Shawl. The two shawls I wear alternately almost every day at work during A/C season! Then on the right is my first pair of socks, knit this year. They were knit to pattern size 8. I'm a size 6. Since I'd never made socks, I didn't mess with the pattern! These I wear every night to bed, till my toes become warm and I take them off during the night in my sleep. Next to the socks is a dishcloth - it's a new one, but representative of the many I use in my housekeeping. And finally on the left are my Voodoo mitts from They were my first dpn project and are done in an wool/acrylic blend, too (Plymouth Encore DK). Interesting that the items I use most are all washable (the exception is HTS, which is Jo Sharp DK Silkroad Tweed).

Oh...I started the Booga Bag in Lambs Pride Bulky and Noro Big Kureyon tonight. I'm participating in Norovember (see the button on the sidebar for a link), too!

It's funny...I don't think it takes fancy yarn or fancy patterns to make something a favorite. Everyday things seem to be simple and easy. :)

I think its great that you keep some of your things and use them! Right now I'm freezing here at work but thankfully I made a blanket on my honeymoon years ago and it is simply garter in red heart but warm as can be.

The bag sounds really lovely!

Thanks for playing! I think it's interesting how wonderfully mundane a lot of our most-used items are.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
