But then I come to my knitting. I have a couple of old projects that are finished but never reason. This sweater in particular comes to mind:
I finished it the fall of 2007 and have woren it maybe once, and I was at home by myself. The only reason I made this sweater was to use up the yarn. This yarn has lived a very toturted existence. I first made a sweater with but then realized I didn't have enough of it. I then made a vest with it and it was much too big. And since completeing this third incarnation it has sat around in my room and somehow developed a mysterious hole in the collar.
Sadly, I don't really like this poor sweater. The yarn is itchy and rough, a poor choice made when I was began knitting. The sweater isn't all that flattering and doesn't fit well. So what do I do? What does a knitter do when they have a completed project that they just don't like but have no need or use for the yarn? Should I toss it the donate bag? Probably but I feel bad tossing something I made.
So I'm curious what do other people do in this situation? Toss the unwanted project and move on or hold onto it in case someday another possible use is thought up?
