My Top 10 Knitting Projects of All Time

Updated on August 30, 2013

The Best of ChemKnits

RinchenChodron challenged me to create a knitting lens as part of the Virtual Jenga II Quest. Since Jenga II is an "About Me" challenge, I am going to dedicate this lens to my 10 favorite knitting projects of all time.

Many of my favorite project (but not all) happen to be my own designs. Am I biased? Sure, but you shouldn't worry about that because this is MY list of favorites! What was a surprise to me is that I have at least one knitting lens that complements each of the favorite projects.

Which project is YOUR favorite?

Which of my top 10 do you think deserves to be #1?

See results

Tell me what you think!

      Ha! I made that bumble bee off of Ravelry for my sister and put it on a large crocheted bag. She love it! Thanks for the pattern!

      Chem - I love your knitting stories. This one is a new favorite! I'm including it in a section about Squidoo Lensmasters who knit on my new knitting lens, which is minutes away from being published! :-) You have Nifty Knits here!

      Chem, I have visited a couple of your lenses before and you are so artistic. Very cute pictures and information. Just WOW....I don't really know what else to say. Every time I come by your lenses I am amazed at the type of things you can make by knitting.

      I wanted the squid, then i saw the penguin, then the jack-o-lantern, and then the bumble bee. Oh my goodness I want them all! You're a great designer.

      I like the cable hat the best, but some of insects and tiny animals were pretty cute!

      With Love and Gratitude,

      I'm not good a knitting, but I once made a hat that covered all but my face and I still have it and wear it in winter and I think it must be at least 45 years old. I knitted it when I was studying Textile Art and I'm now 66 years old.
