Finished two more moebius, totally revamping Cat's pattern to suit
me... hoping to get pix up 'sometime' this weekend. I've just started
the 4th one this morning, too.
I *might* give two of them to my sister and mother as gifts...
however, IF I do, I already know that 'praise', thanks, or credit for
something well done and also 'nice' to *do* WON'T be acknowledged.
.....
Hugs,
Noreen

Sheesh, woman, you are motivated! I'll be lucky to have finished a
couple pair of socks this month. That's fine with me, though. I still
hope to have that Absolutely Fabulous throw finished for my friend's
wedding gift not long after her wedding next Saturday, and if I remember
I'll take a picture of the finished product, for a change g

So why bother? Give them something cheap from the discount store and
either wear the scarves yourself or give them to someone who WILL
appreciate them

My sentiments exactly. When you take the time to make something special, it
should go to someone who will appreciate your efforts. ;)

Just to add to Olwyn Mary's comment: if it turns out they like the items
from the store and at least give a thank-you, then you can stop trying to
create something yourself that they will appreciate. If they don't value
beautifully hand-knit items and prefer mass-produced gifts, then that's what
you should give them(if you feel like giving them anything at all, of
course).

Happy knitting and stay well.

Yannow what? Olwyn Mary has a point here. Why waste your time trying to
"impress" or "please" these people? Knit/crochet/whatever for people who do
appreciate it, and stop beating yourself up about them.

You're a better woman than I. I no longer give gifts to people who
don't at least acknowledge the gesture, and I certainly don't give
handknits to them.

Reply to the list as I do not publish an email address to USENET.
This practice has cut my spam by more than 95%.
Of course, I did have to abandon a perfectly good email account...

LOL, Kim!
Not exactly 'motivated' as my housework can attest!
Seriously, tho, moebius go SO fast, and the pattern is mindless....
I finished number 4 this morning....

time to realize that its OKAY to be a "dissappointment" to my
mother....
