How Often Do You Wear Crocheted Items?By Rachel Choi – 29 Comments
A Crochet Spot reader recently asked me how often I wore my crocheted creations. At first I thought it was a weird question to ask, but after thinking about it I realized that I probably don’t wear my crocheted items as much as I think I should. Being a crochet addict and pattern designer I have to admit I have a ton of crocheted items. So many items that I’ve filled an entire closet. You’d think I’d wear something crocheted everyday!
To be honest, a lot of times when I crochet items I try to make things that others want, not necessarily what I would personally need or use. I find myself giving away crocheted items as gifts more often than wearing them myself. Other times my work sits in the crochet closet just in case I need to reference it if someone has a question about the pattern. Sadly I forget to wear the items when they’re tucked away in a closet.
I do have a new determination after thinking about the lack of crochet items I wear. I am super proud of all the things I make, so I should wear them proudly as well. Maybe I’ll choose a new item out of the crochet closet each week to wear. That should get me started wearing crochet items more often!
What about you? How often do you wear crocheted items? Do you wish you wore crocheted items more than you do now?
