Didn't because you knew the item would be ruined fairly quickly? I want to make the Very Berry T at MagKnits (http://magknits.com/Mar07/patterns/berry.htm) for my step-granddaughter (she'll be 4 in february) but i'm on the fence between "do it anyway" and "why bother".
let's just say that the things i've made for her in the past (afghans, sweater sets when she was a baby) ended up stained/ripped/ruined/ or used by the dogs in their bed (don't get me started... i'd typed out a LONG rant a few minutes ago and decided to NOT post it) and it'd end up being dh's ex who'd wash it since my stepgranddaughter's mother doesn't do housework (another rant another time).... :gah:
I don't know anyone else with any girls... the only friends that I have happen to have boys as well...
So yeah, i'm irritated, got one of the world's cutest kids (when she's behaving) that'd look adorable in knitted garments that I can't knit for
