The sweater I have been knitting on was/is to be for my new grand-nephew. (Hmm, don’t I sound old?)
My niece just told me she is giving him up for adoption. (He is her 3rd, and she is keeping her 2 oldest children.) She is pregnant with him now but not due for a couple months. She did not want to have a family member have him (I will! I will! Or my sister) because she said it would be too hard for her.
Needless to say I am devastated, but have a knitting related question naturally or I wouldn’t be posting here.
a) finish the thing and keep it (there are always babies, and I am probably not finished having them either anyway)
b) finish the thing and send it to my niece- maybe she she will change her mind or send it with him (because it is for him, whether he stays in the family or not)
c) finish the thing and donate it
d) frog the thing and burn the yarn
e) keep it unfinished in my knitting basket some more
I have also started a baby blanket for him but have just done a couple of rows and would feel fine not finishing that one as it isn’t going well.
If I do finish it, it will be wet because I am just crying all the time! This could be part of working through healing to work on it. I’m not sure.
What would you do?
