We recently went apple picking with our homeschool group. It was a chilly morning so the kids got all layered up in their hand knits.
The Princess wore an epically soft hooded scarf that I made for The Bookworm a few birthdays ago.
The Munchkin wore a hat that I made as a swatch for a color work idea that I never actually finished, the cabled cardigan that I made for the Dancing Queen and has been passed down several times, and the foxy fingerless gloves that she has hardly taken off since I bound them off months ago.
The Blessing has hardly any knits made just for her, because she keeps getting all the older sister’s stuff – The Munchkin’s Dress, The Fraggle’s Cardigan, and a Rasta hat that I made for myself (but never wear).
It is lovely that my home is overflowing with beloved knits that are worn year after year. I really like that aspect of this particular hobby: wrapping my children in knitted love.
