Selfish Knitter

Yes I know it has been months since I have posted.  I've been a tad busy with this little thing called teaching!!

Anytime I meet new people and they find out I'm a knitter, their first response is "oh will you knit me a ...."  To which I reply, "I don't knit for other people." I usually justify this with my excuse of limited knitting time, which is only partially true.

What I'm really saying is that I'm selfish with my knitting goods.  I am afraid the recipient will totally destroy the item or not appreciate the time and care involved when owning a hand knit item.

So imagine my surprise when I willingly asked someone if they would like a hand knit hat!!!

I even sent several pictures of color & yarn combinations for approval.

So I will be casting on a Jarod Flood Turn A Square hat using Frog Tree Pediboo yarn. Pictures will be forthcoming.

I just hope the recipient understands what a rare event this is. Would a signed & notarized terms of agreement be too much to ask for before handing over said hat????


  1. Hey, Lucy, will you make me a scarf?

    1. Hey, Ethel, you know I don't knit for others!! now if you need yarn, I'm totally your girl!

  2. Heather...they are VERY lucky. And I understand your reluctance. :)
