I have a situation that maybe some of you have had in your knitting experiences. I guess I am a bit thin skinned about it, but truth be told it hurts.
I have made several things for a certain person for birthday or Christmas or whatever. The articles are not crummy, they look well made, not like some I Love Lucy episode or something. They aren’t really fancy either. They are mostly sweaters. In fact, one of the items was actually a request and I worked long and hard on it having to have help from knitting friends with a particularly difficult direction. Each time I made something for this person, she shows me something her expert knitter friend made for her or shows me this woman’s blog so I can see what beautiful things she has made. I know I have not ventured into the lovely lace patterns so many of you have accomplished or even tried my hand at cables and difficult patterns as such, but I know many of you here have seen the things I have made for others and I don’t believe they are inferior. I would almost make bets she takes what I make to the friend’s so she can pick it apart so to speak. My gut tells me she does.
I have decided not to make this person anything else because to tell the truth always being shown what she thinks I obviously can’t do compared to her friend plain hurts my feelings.
Do you think I am being unfair by deciding not to do more for this person? Any of you come across a situation like this at all?
