Knitting for non-knitters can be rewarding!
Just look above at my lovely friend Sara sporting her Kittyville hat. You can't see the hat clearly but I rarely think that matters when it comes to these - hasn't everyone knit one?
There is a thread over at Craftster (in fact it's http://http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=61339.0
) that talks about the woes of knitting for non-knitters. In my humble opinion, it does go both ways. Firstly, there is the friend who thinks you cough out sweaters in your sleep. Don't make her anything, it'll only encourage her. But then there's the friend who is always in awe of the amazing things you can make with sticks and string. The Kittyville hat is a doddle to knit, but it didn't stop a giant grin spreading across Sara's face and her proudly wearing it for the entire evening.
Remember y'all, knitting is an art. And occasionally giving away your goodies reminds people just how cool it is.
Now, back to my next act of knitting generosity... a swap hat.
