Favorite Make

Karen at nothingbutknit2 created a challenge for us to post about our favorite make. It can be anything: knitting, sewing, art, other craft…

This is tough for me because first I have to define what “favorite” means to me. Most enjoyable make? Most frequent use? Nicest to look at?

I’m pretty sure it’s my Birds of Blendon Hat. It’s my chart. I loved making it. It’s my first hat to grab. It’s soft and warm and fits my head well. It goes with everything.

My Twilight Paris Tunis Toujours Shawl is my second favorite. It’s the first thing I grab when I’m feeling a chill. It’s warm, soft, versatile, and my favorite colors. I dyed it! I can wear it wrapped around like a shawl (I often wear it tied in back) or I can wear it like a scarf with a jacket. It’s SE2SE yarn.

So I guess favorite for me means most frequently used. The shawl is a surprise to me because I don’t really think of myself as a wrap or shawl wearer. This changed for me once I started working from home.

I hope everyone is well. I have had a headache all weekend. Not much knitting going on here. Lots of reading, napping, and tisane drinking.

If you haven’t yet blogged about your favorite make, I hope you will do so!

  1. I’ll be very interested to see what other criteria are used to choose faves – I like that you chose most used! I just posted mine – it took some doing to find or make photos of what I wanted, and get down the hill to internet access! I love your hat – it looks like it was fun and challenging to knit.
