Day 6 – Revisit a past F/O
Bring the fortune and life of a past finished project up to the present. Document the current state and use of an object you have knitted or crocheted, whether it is the hat your sister wears to school almost every day, or a pair of socks you wore until they were full of hole. Or maybe that jumper that your dad just didn’t like that much.
When I first moved into my house I had a minor ant situation. Little black ants were getting into Drusilla’s bowl of food. So, I got Drusilla some bowls that were lifted off of the ground. But because of the new bowls, she began dropping food onto the floor, which was really not good for the ant problem. So, I knew she needed some sort of placemat for under her bowls.
I tried several plastic placemats, but none worked. So, I decided to crochet her one.
Not only did it make it harder for the ants to get to her food, but it matches the kitchen perfectly.
After three years, the placemat is actually still intact. Both Daphne and Drusilla eat their treats on it so it is not as clean as it once was, but I hand wash it every week or so.
I am actually pretty amazed it has held up as well as it has, especially since it was one of my first projects. I guess it is time to make a second one for Daphne now!
