    A lovely post, thank you.I have an aran jumper that I knitted as a teenager, it took me about a year, but it was from yarn bought on a holiday to Donegal with my family. It has frayed but it still wearable nearly 60 years later.

    I think that having something with memories attached to it is part of the joy of knitting (and other crafts). I love picking up pieces I made years ago and remembering not just them being used e.g. by a child now grown far too large, but also my making of them – my mood at the time, what was going on around me while I was making them.
