That was a great episode! I totally relate to giving gifts that no one appreciates. I gave my sis-in-law 4 baby blankets and a sweater for my nephew and he wore none of them! Never again! I would love to win some of those sarcastic tags!

Giving someone your handmade items is scarey. There are some who don't appreciate them because they think of them as less than something bought in a store. Choose the recipient carefully. Gift tags would be a nice touch if you are brave enough to gift part of yourself.

I stopped knitting for my sister. Everything I made for her got packed up and sent to never never land. She constantly remarks about how pretty the things are that I make but never again!

I am careful about who I knit for. Mostly I make things for myself. I hate to think someone feels obliged to wear what I've made for them.

I can believe that a knitwear recipient will not use it because they think it's beautiful and precious. Last year, I knit some beautiful Monkeys and I wore them only once cause I'm afraid to use them ;-) They are so nice!!!

I am a late-comer to listening, but appreciated this podcast as i have spent hours creating just the right gift for which i have rec'd such lackluster thanks that i wanted to take the item back. glad i'm not the only one...
