Carole brought up a good question for ToT this week by asking which 10 patterns we'd be willing to knit again. There are very few patterns I've knit more than once, as a trip through my Ravelry projects will attest. However, I have considered knitting a number of sweaters and shawls again.
Some sweaters no longer fit, or didn't fit right the first time, and I (now) know what to do to make the second one fit better. There are any number of shawls I loved the process enough to knit it a second time, but that being said, it's unlikely any of them will be reknit. I like looking forward.
First, and foremost, I'd make more Ragtops, and I probably will. I love the Ragtop pattern and wear every pair I've made or have had given to me. They're warm, multitasking mitts that fit almost any winter need. I've worn them over the top of gloves and by themselves. I love my Ragtops. LOVE them.
Second, I'd knit another Germinate, as I've worn the one I made almost every day since it came off the needles. In fact, I'm considering colors as I type.
Third, I'd love to knit another Twist as the one I have is a little too large and, if it fit, I'd wear it year round.
The forth item I'd be willing to knit again would be Cleite. I love the shape, the process of knitting, as well as the wonderful yarn I used, which was Kim's Opulence, a favorite! This time I'd keep it for myself.
Fifth, I'd willingly knit another Foglifter, as it is a great fitting shawl and very versatile. I made it in a sport weight yarn and would love to have one to wear in a lighter weight yarn. The first I gave away.
I'd also knit, for my sixth choice, Tempest, which ended up being a bit too short for me. I'd make the bottom stripe longer so I could move around without pulling up over my jeans. This one also was given away.
The seventh item on my reknit list might be Blue Whale, although the color and yarn I used, String Theory's Handdyed in Shale, would be hard to beat.
Eighth...I've though about knitting another Lily, as I enjoyed wearing her while I had her. She met an unfortunate incident with the dyer and I've mourned her ever after. She was fun to knit the first time, so a slog wouldn't be involved.
Nineth, I would consider knitting another Hayward, as I like wearing the one I have.
And, tenth, I might knit another Fortnight for Smith. He likes his very much and another might make a nice gift this winter. In fact, this one may go into the queue.
BUT FIRST! I want to knit Cactus Flower. The colors I have are gorgeous and I'm making good progress. Stay tuned for the NEW.
