From Susan – Knitworthy

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 3:44 pm

Can knitworthiness be measured merely by the likelihood of knitting for someone else because they deserve it*, or can we also include the act of appreciating one’s knitting?  Case in point.  Look at my sweet old Molly lounging with a pillow I made years ago from a UFO:

She looks so perfect next to the aran cables!!  And my daughter has already proven to be knitworthy many times over.  We met for lunch on Friday and she appeared wearing the Hitofude I just finished as well as the Sweet Dreams shawlette I made her last year.  She wears that shawl every day!! :)

Yep.  Two very knitworthy girls!!

*ETA: Anyone you knit for must appreciate it in order to be deemed knitworthy.  However, in Molly’s case, I did not knit it for her, but she seemed to appreciate it anyway — and therefore gets points in my book!!


  1. I’d argue that one must be appreciative of said knitting in order to be deserving of said knitting. Both of your models look lovely with their respective knitting.

  2. You should definitely add “appreciation” to the equation. If someone is special enough to deserve all the work that goes into making something for them AND they appreciate it, I’d say that they both equal knitworthiness. She looks beautiful wearing your gifts.

  3. Both are so knitworthy! Mollie looks so sweet and Laura looks adorable in her Hitofude! Could that possibly be Good Day? I recognize it as I was there on Friday for a brunch! I was there until 12:30 or so. Funny our paths did not cross! Did you try the sweet potato pancakes? So good with the brown sugar and pecan topping! Yummmmm! The Hitofude is haunting me…..

  4. I will knit for someone *once* because they deserve it, but more than that only if they appreciate it. If it goes in a drawer never to be seen again, you’ve had your turn. I knit once for teachers (first kid) but only twice if they ASK. Which did happen once and I quite happily knit a pair of socks for that appreciative elementary teacher. This year it’s all cranberry bread at school, which leaves me time to knit for some newbies and see how it turns out!
