I finished the knitted throw I started last week and am really pleased with it. Splitting the plies did make it more mini, and the Truboo yarn is extra soft and drapey. It totally met my expectations.
I made a sample of the yarn so you can see the difference. The top one is the original 8 ply and the finished throw is 4 ply.
I don’t knit as much as I used to, but my daughters picked up where I left off. In fact, when I asked my son-in-law for gift ideas for my younger daughter, he responded, “well, knit happens.” I knew he was telling me that anything yarn or knitting related would be appreciated. That comment could have come from either son-in-law. Both daughters always have an intricate knitting (or crocheting) project in the works. I’m often the beneficiary of some of their projects, like these two scarves and the pillow
Knit has happened in my family for generations, passed down from one mom to the next. But that is not all. My Scandinavian ancestors demonstrated the tradition of always doing something, which in our family translated to always making something. My daughters and grandchildren carry on the traditions as you have seen in previous posts.
Does knit happen at your house? Or do you prefer crochet?
