:hug: awww... not a good reason at all! I am so sorry...
people are going to think all sorts of things... Personally the first thing I think when seeing a sweater is, "is it hand knit!?!"
I think it great and fantastic and I am very impressed...
but the question was asked, do you look at the knitting and analyze the item? Are you able to spot if something is hand-knit?
The truth is that I, for one, do...
Now if you ask, "Am I more impressed with a hand made sweater over the store sweater?
A 1000 times yes... I am always more impressed with the work and love that someone puts into anything.
I'd hate to contribute to someone not wearing something they made!!!
I am so sorry! Personally I love the quirky, odd and unique. I make many of those things, and I am many of those qualities too! I, personally, don't let other's choose for me!
