If I like a pattern a lot, I knit it more than once. Let’s see…I’ve knit:
- 2 Helm Hats
- A bunch of Walt Painted Chevron Baby Blankets
- Several Bandana Cowls
- Too many Windschief Hats
- 2 Six Point Tees
- Probably two dozen Baby/Child Sophisticate Cardigans
- 2 Madigan sweaters
- 4 Tecumseh sweaters (2 were for the dogs)
- 4 Togue Pond Tanks
But if you want to talk about a sweater that has been my favorite to knit, it has been the Love Note sweater by TinCan Knits. I’ve knit not one, two, three or four…but FIVE. My sister Anne got the first one, my mother got the second one, I kept the third and I made my sister Helen my fourth. Then I decided that a cotton short sleeve version for summer was in order and I was totally right. It changes with every yarn combination and each has been had different changes in length, sleeves and sizing. It’s a favorite because it flies off my needles and I finally got a picture with my mom and sisters and I all wearing our Love Notes.
I highly doubt I’m finished knitting this sweater. I’m sure a friend will be gifted on or maybe I’ll convert it to a tiny version for Jellybean. All I know is that when the knitting it this good and fun, it should be repeated.
