For a knitter, nothing is more satisfying than seeing loved ones wearing the items you made for them. I'm a scattered knitter. Some years I don't do anything but the occasional scarf, other times I'll knit up a storm and try new yarns and more complex patterns.
This is my youngest grandchild, wearing a sweater I made for his older brother a few years ago, using self-striping yarn. It was fun! But not as much fun as getting this picture sent to me by his mom. Along with the sweater, he's wearing the hat I made him for Christmas. Hand-knit yumminess is so good for the soul!
