I see a lot of threads on here about how their knitting is not apreciated and how thankless people can be and it is sad. But surely not everybody has experiences like that. there must be some well loved knitted gifts out there!!
I made a red and white knitted cardigan for my friend who is (well his GF is) expecting a baby very soon. I spent a long time picking the right pattern for them and then modified it to suit their tastes. I slo made a matching hat for them. I finally put it in the post to them on Wednesday and on Thursday got a phone call from my freindto say thank you and that he thought it was great and how kind it was to make somthing for his as yet unborn baby.
It was lovely that he thought to ring me the very same day and was so happy with it. I have promised to make one or two things as and when i can because i know they will be well loved.
Yay for appreciative people!!
Any similar happy knitting gift stories to share?
