Of all the sweaters you’ve knit, which ones do you really wear?
A couple of years ago I bought a pile of Berroco Cuzco in a now discontinued shade of brown, and knit a slightly oversized top down v-neck with textured stitch and twisted rib (no pattern just made it up as I went along), it is the quintessential grandpa sweater and pretty ugly. Until it was replaced by Aidez, I never took it off. Except for the White Pine and Berlin I haven’t been wearing my own patterns much. Not because I don’t like them, in most cases I love them, but I seem to be saving them for… something.*
Ravelry is wonderful for telling us which projects people want to knit vs actually do knit, but we never find out which pieces make it from project pile to wardrobe.
*Something might be when I am less overwhelmed by the tiny sticky fingers of small humans. Machine washable does matter.
