There have been threads on here before about co-workers, friends, etc asking for hand-knitted items with no idea of what was involved. maybe I can beat all of them: Today I was asked by a co-worker if i would knit a hat and a scarf for her to give to her cousin’s DOG for Christmas!! I explained that
- I could not add anything to the list of items I had to finish before Christmas.
- I don’t have enough time to knit all the things I want to knit.
- It would not be economically feasible to pay someone to knit these items, to which her response was that she knew that my price would be lower than stores.
I give up!! Some people will never understand. Hopefully she was not too offended. I have knitted a scarf for her a while ago, at her request, without charging for the time or the yarn.
