Do you have a knitted or crocheted object / garment you could never part with? A treasured piece with fond memories. Maybe the very first project you completed, possibly including the odd flaw or dropped stitch which makes it that bit more precious or a gift someone gave you many years ago. There are also those projects that take so long to finish, an intricate fair isle or lace design that has taken a lot of time and concentration, possibly at times testing your patience. Projects that end up being successful or unsuccessful - when you do eventually finish and stop to think, actually it isn't for you after all, but you can not part with it. This will be a treasured project that will live tucked away somewhere safe in your wardrobe, one day to be rediscovered. It could be knitted, crocheted or stitched, a piece that you will treasure forever.

Over the next few weeks the Black Sheep staff will be sharing their most treasured projects here on the blog whether it is knitted, crocheted or stitched. If you would like to join in please send photos of your treasured pieces to with a little bit of information about it. We would love to see them, the more the merrier!
