This is still my favorite. I made it in 2012 for my first-born granddaughter. At that time I said I didn’t know who her mother would be, because I had 3 daughters and no grandchildren yet. Here it is a decade later and I’m in the same position. 😢

I won’t complain though. Each daughter is doing well in her chosen career and we are all close…much closer than I ever was with my mother.

this is a sweater and hat I made for a new great niece. Her parents were both 44 when she was born. The new grandparents had lost all hope of having grandkids, ever since their daughter had already announced she wasn’t ever having kids. It’s almost 5 years later and the little girl is still the only grandchild. But I can tell you her grandparents, my brother-in-law and his wife, are over the moon in love with her.

Difficult to choose! ... but I think my all-time favourite project has been my granny stitch triangle shawls.
My "thing" was to finish every one with a curly fringe!
The other thing I liked about making these was that I could (literally) crochet one with my eyes closed....
No pattern required!
I love to use variegated yarn ( probably because I'm a bit lazy, and don't like weaving in ends!)

I agree with those who have said how difficult it is to choose only one! I don't know how many favorites I have, but I will post this one, the Secession Cowl. I posted this project on KP about 5 years ago. It was a big project, but never boring. I have always been partial to reds, maybe that's why I'm so drawn to this piece. This project also includes a smattering of beads, which helped keep it interesting as I knit it. I have found that there is no 'wrong' way to wear this garment, so it has been versatile as well. I remember that the pattern was very well-written and easy to follow.

I knitted this baby blanket for my dear friend's first grandchild. My friend breeds miniature horses. The baby was a granddaughter, so I single-crocheted around each rocking horse square with varigated pink yarn to make the light teal look more feminine! The pattern is Rocking Horse Baby Blanket by Barbara Breiter, a free pattern on Ravelry.
What a great idea

Yours is more attractive/eye-catching than the one first seen on the pattern page: Secession Cowl pattern by Kristina Vilimaite

My Son #2, his wife and her two daughters were going overseas to Italy to visit DDI father. I thought that a shawl would be useful for her to slip on while out in the evenings, plus I wanted her to have a keepsake from me. So, this Dee O’Keefe shawl was born. It travelled with the family from Australia to Italy and the photo shown is in St Peter’s Square in the Vatican City. Jen.
