Absolutely! I make functional "art", in the heritage of historic craftswomen & craftsmen. I want people to use what I knit, crochet, weave, and/or sew. Love it when baby blankets are used and loved until they are just string. Never wanted to make an heirloom that will sit in a box....., what fun is that😉

If you keep challenging yourself, "heirloom" will become just another skill set, not something to avoid. Don't let it intimidate you! Everything I make is "heirloom" in that I want others to use and enjoy them. Especially after I'm gone.

Though, often enough I find myself sticking to garter stitch ... mitered squares mostly. Each finished square gives a boost of instant gratification!

Probably true😊

I have some heirloom edging patterns that I will probably never use because I don't really understand the wording in the patterns. I know, if my great-grandmother were here, she could show me. She did beautiful work.

When I learned to knit there were no warnings on patterns that said this is hard or do not knit me unless you are experienced. Therefore the second project I made was a fair isle adult size sweater and the next was a cabled pair of socks. Do not let a challenge scare you off of knitting something.

I don't mind a challenge - I've even accepted a few! But I do read through a pattern to see if the challenge seems to be worth the frogging I'm likely to do.
