What knitted item do you use the most?
Apart from socks and dishcloths, what have you knitted recently or in the past that you have had the most use out of.
For me it is a classic plain V neck jumper,
and close second, a Lapghan.

Aw jeez, I was gonna say socks. I'm in the process of making a lapghan like Ingy made though. And I think I will use it everyday in winter. Hows that?

my scarves... as soon as it gets the least bit chilly i pull the scarves out and wear them like crazy. i have a silly hat that i made for when it is really cold too. it was knit big enough that it doesn't do HORRIBLE things to my hair (though i don't get too worried about that most of the time) and it looks silly enough that it makes me giggle to wear it.

I used to not wear scarves. Then I knit one and realized how much of a difference it made. Now I wear one all day in the winter since the building where I work is chilly and having my neck covered is heavenly.

I also wear my sweaters all winter.

In the summer- a light afghan I made a few years back. In the winter-all my sweaters, heavy afghans, wool socks, and scarves. But the thing I use most in the colder months is a felted coat I did 3 years ago. I love that thing, it's so warm.

I keep several of my sleeveless cotton sweaters on frequent rotation throughout the year. And after I made the New York Jacket from Vogue Knitting (it is a pattern from 2 years ago), I wear that as soon as it is chilly enough out to wear. All of my afghans (which are mainly crocheted) are used frequently; whether it is cold outside or if my husband cranks up the air conditioning.

I really want to make Danica from, but I have too many projects lined up right now.

The only thing I have knit for myself is socks, so that's what I use. Everything else I've made has been given away. Well, except for the ONE cotton sweater I finished. I wear that all the time in the Spring and Summer.
