Whatever happened to your ...................?
Write about the fate of a past knitting project. Whether it be something that you crocheted or knitted for yourself or to give to another person. An item that lives with you or something which you sent off to charity.
Back in 2009 I joined a small knitting group. We met each week in a local pub, The Pigs. This pub, not surprisingly, is packed with all sorts of piggy memorabilia, and so I decided that what they needed was a pair of woolly porkers to add to their already substantial collection. I searched Ravelry for the perfect pattern, and found this. A quick rummage through my stash gave me an odd ball of Noro Kureyon yarn, and before too long, the Ickle Piggies were born!
I have to say that I really, really liked them, and found it very hard to hand them over to the pub at my next knitting group. But I bid them farewell, taking comfort from the fact that they were sitting by the 'Pigs in Knits' sign, waiting for my return each week. They proved popular with the regulars, and people were even reputed to have offered money to buy them! Every Thursday Knitnight, I'd say a little hello to them as they watched down on us knitting with their black buttony eyes. The knitting group took a break for the summer, and so, it seems, did the Ickle Piggies. When I next returned to the pub, there was no sign of them!! No one at the pub claimed to have any knowledge of what had happened to them! Did someone steal them in a drunken moment? Were they bartered for? Wherever they've ended up, I hope that someone loves them and is giving them a good home together! They'd hate to be separated! Oink oink Ickle Piggies!
