As a knitter, I enjoy seeing my knitting projects "in the wild." You know what I mean, don't you. Seeing something I've knit being worn without the person knowing that I'm going to be there. Do you like this?
Recently I visited my sister and her husband. I spotted some socks I knit for her in 2007. Here's the picture of the socks when I originally gave them to her.
and she was very happy to get them. See?
I love this photo. The smile is perfect.
Three and a half years later, she still has the socks and wears them. I snapped this picture as proof.
Makes me feel good to have my knitting enjoyed over a number of years
