Lifecycle

Once, long ago, I took a weekend trip.  It was cold, so I made a hat.  I had a tiny bit of yarn left, so I made some very very wee cuffs to go with it.  Then, as is the way with knitted things, I wore the heck out of them.  They’ve been used for four winters, and they are showing some serious signs of wear.

DSC_2271How about you guys, do you ever go back and re-knit old favorites when they wear out?  Any patterns you knit over and over?  Or are you always ready to move on to the next thing?
