I went to my sister 50th year Birthday party. I'm sitting there in walks a lady that I didn't know wearing one of my hats. I know she thought I was nuts because I kept looking at her. I ask my daughter did she know her because my daughter will go in my hat box and give a friend a hat. This lady walks up and says thank you for the hat I wear it all the time. I had to think, do I say who are you when she said your sister told me how you knit all the time and gave me this hat. She's now taking a knit class learning how to knit. I woke up the next morning calling my sister up at 6am, when did you take the hat and how did you get it pass me. We laugh and she thought I was nuts because she was watching me watch her friend. Can you pick out your knitting? Donna

I don't particularly recognize my knitting (though I know who I have given what and will recognize it when I see it on them) but I do recognize my PATTERNS and get a kick when I see one being worn...

MMario, Maybe that's it, the only thing is I didn't give it away. Donna

It is really fun to see your work walking around in the crowd! I'm fortunate that this happens quite often. We live in a community where MANY people have consistently supported me for years, buying from me directly or from my gallery where 20 local artists show and sell their work. So I also know that many of my pieces have traveled all over the country and world. All this has been quite unexpected, for which I am extremely grateful.

The other fun thing is when those who've purchased a pattern send me photos of THEIR creations - very gratifying!

Merry Christmas!

A large proportion of my knitting is done for dolls. I love seeing someone's doll, usually in an on-line group, wearing my work.
And yes, I can always pick it out, all of my work is one of a kind.
I also knit for friends and family, so when I see them wearing my knitting, it pleases me.

I get very excited and happy when I see someone wearing the pattern I
"unvented." If possible, I try to talk to that person and share a little knitting joy.

That's a great story. Years ago I was at my daughter's 5 year old piano recital when I stopped and gawked at a baby. Not unusual for me, but she was wearing a dress I had made for my little one. Turns out she is a cousin of one of the many people who got hand me downs from my very fast growing kids. The pattern was from my grandmother and the wool was from a trip to Australia. I recognized my knitting!
