We all have people in our lives that are knitworthy, meaning they are worth the money and time and effort we put into a knitted gift. And I'm pretty darn sure we all have people in our lives that are definitely NOT knitworthy. People we aren't close enough to knit something for them. Or people who received a gift from you and either indicated that knitted items are either a cheap or easy gift to give, or didn't wear it ever or care for it well. Or even those who want you to knit for them, but when you offer to instead teach them, they are all "Uh, no. I just want you to make what I want when I want it."
Fortunately, I have a life full of knitworthy people (and, yes, the other type too) who received gifts this year.
Then, I knit this yarn over type lace cowl for a friend awhile back and finally gifted it to her. It washed and blocked out so nicely with minimal effort. And it's worth noting that there was absolutely no dye bleeding into the water when I soaked it. Dream in Color doesn't mess around! They are all pro.
The yarn is one of their limited edition colors that isn't available, but it's quite close to Cabaret which I have on Jilly (I knit a Sockhead out of this too this year!), Everlasting, and Smooshy with Cashmere.
Finally, both little Henry and James received Poke ball crocheted hats from someone special this year. She has made them hats in the past too, and these were a huge hit. James has worn his out nearly every day since receiving it a couple weeks ago, and Henry even wears his inside the house sometimes. These kids definitely appreciate a good hand made hat, even if it's not from their mama!
Who in your life is supremely knit worthy or not?
