A Darling Knit

I’ve frequently said that I enjoy knitting for family & friends. Recently, I’ve been reminded why there is joy in the process. A couple of weeks ago, I received a picture via text from Texas that reinforced why it is so special to knit for loved ones. Miss Butterfly, who is now 9 1/2 years old (!) had picked out a M’Amy hand-knit to wear to school that day – because it was cool & stylish. The handknit, the “Oh My Darling” poncho that I had knit for her almost 4 1/2 years ago.

Darling Butterfly It is fun to look at the “now & then” pictures and see how Miss Butterfly has grown up. I’m thinking that this year’s knit list needs to include new wearables for the dear kiddos in my life.


  1. Oh yeah! And the great thing about ponchos is… looks like she might get another few years’ wear out of it! But the very best part is knitting for someone who loves to wear it.

  2. That is very sweet! How nice that a handknit for a kid has had such a long life, too — I usually avoid knitting clothes for kids because they outgrow them so quickly!

  3. Such cute pictures! I love that she so enjoys your knitted gift! That does make it worthwhile! Very special.
