22/30 Un-knitworthy Recipients

30 Day Knitting Challenge Day 22: Have you ever stricken someone off your to-knit-for list because they didn’t appreciate/take care of your last knitted gift to them?

Lucky for me, I haven’t had to do this. My husband might qualify for ruining my sweaters in the laundry, but I still knit for him. If people I’ve knit for have treated my gifts badly or scoffed at them, they’ve been kind enough to make sure I haven’t found out. I don’t think I knit enough for other people, or rather, I don’t knit as much for other people as other knitters do – I’m a pretty selfish knitter, so haven’t exposed myself much to rejection.

What a short answer. Here’s a video from almost 2 weeks ago of Eevee and I chatting to make this more exciting.

    Lol. It’s lucky she was there to step in and save the universe!

  2. She’s pretty spectacular!

  3. Aww…super cute kitty! It makes me miss mine so much. I lost one last year (14 yo) and one this year (17 yo). Unfortunately, my hubby is allergic to them and amazingly put up with the allergic reactions for a really long time just to live with us.

    1. Oh no! I’m so sorry for your losses. After 17 years without kitties, I finally convinced mine last xmas that the vacancy left by our 3rd dog should be filled by a kitty (Jeffrey Lebowski). And then Jeff needed a friend and Eevee needed a home, so she came to us in July.

  4. I am happy to say that no one has ever had a reaction to my work that made me take them off my list. 🙂
