This morning I had some time left before work – not enough for anything major, but just enough. I played around with my Ravelry projects page, and made a new category: “Wearable to Work”.
Or maybe it should read, “Worn to Work”. In knitting terms that means, an FO that you’re proud enough of to wear outside the house, and moreover, that won’t raise eyebrows ( except in admiration) on the workfloor.
I’m pleased to report that I have more than a dozen of those. I admit, some of them are hats and scarves, but most of them are actually dresses, cardigans and sweaters. ( I’m wearing Norah Gaughan’s Anhinga as I type – ready to go out into the world with it).
What they all have in common: restrained color. Great design. Good finishing ( it’s never perfect, is it?).
What are you wearing today? Is it one of your own FOs? What FOs have you worn to work or visiting or the supermarket without feeling any shame?
