Rare, Precious, Beautiful

Vicki at knitorious posted something wonderful the other day.  It's the idea of the Rare Stitch as reminder of those among us who suffer from rare diseases and conditions.  I read her words as I was finishing my "Sweet Little Nothing" sweater,


It's a wee bit hard to see in amongst the tweed, but that little pink duplicate stitch will rest just over my heart.  I am going to try and remember to do this on all my finished items from now on, and encourage you to do the same.

Thank you, Vicki.


  1. LOVE!! I have been knitting so many super-colorful and/or speckled things that a Rare Stitch would be lost. I have a few other items where this would really work, though, but decided to give them a bath first... By the way, I love your Sweet Little Nothing!!

  2. Speckled really works on this wonderful knit up. LOVE IT kim!

It's two sticks and a piece of string.  You have to stop and realize that occasionally.  And this is a simple slipped-stitch border. ...
