Hand Knit Hand Me Downs

Grab This Button

Julie from This Cozy Life had an awesome idea:

"This group is a place to bring your outgrown, mis-sized, no longer wanted or needed handknits and crochet. Knitting for babies and children is such a pleasure but they outgrow clothing so quickly! Or, perhaps you made a hat or sweater that doesn't fit you like it should or are just tired of a hat you made two years. Well, bring all of your *gently used* hand knits here and find them a new home where they will be loved and treasured and get some new knits in the process! Rules: *You must knit or crochet. *No selling... at all. You will pay shipping costs on the items you ship out, no money is to be exchanged. *Hand knits or crocheted items only, no commercial, please. *When posting an item to give away, please include the size/age, fibre content and any relevant notes, including condition. *In order to insure fairness, please use to choose the recipient when more than one person is requesting an item. How long you leave comments open is up to you. *Please include 'Offer', 'Received' or 'Closed' in the item title. *Don't forget to close comments on items already given away. *When an item is received by you take a picture and share it with us!"

Sounds great right?
I'm sure I'll have some stuff to offer soon. I'm a beginner after all... And beginner makes mistakes, right?

(hope you don't mind me posting a pic of your daughter, Julie!)

Accordingly, this very cute little hat is going to be Merrick's!
I'm very happy since by the time I'll be able to knit that well, he won't wear tiny stuff anymore!

So I'm sure some of you have some piece you just couldn't give away but still isn't useful around.

I'm giving those away.
I've been given those by my mom and they unfortunately are too long. Any other family member which it could fit don't like the colour. ( But I do! ) You can see the length on the picture.
They are (probably) made out of acrylic yarn. I say so because I've washed them in case they would shrink to my size (I have very little feet!) But they did not. And they are not itchy as well. So if you want them, comment (here or on flickr) and they are yours!


Thanks for commenting!
