    I agree – every FO holds so many memories and special moments! I remember almost one year ago, after a huge hurricane hit our town and everything was pretty much destroyed and swept away, I started working on a very complicated pattern – Textured jacket from Vogue Knitting. As the whole town stopped for one month, all roads were closed and we couldn’t go anywhere, the work was off for a month, I had nothing to do but knit! And how much solace it brought me during these harsh weeks. Now every time I look at it I appreciate simple little things that I have right now and I feel grateful for surviving it!

    I love looking at a peeve I have knit and thinking back to when it was knit and where I was. Memories in every stitch for sure. All good ideas for summer trips!
