My Fourth Bewb

Back in October, I knit a few bewbs for charity. Apparently word got around, and my mom asked me if I would be willing to knit a bewb for a customer at her shop. What else could I say but yes?

Silky Bewb

This time I used a lovely silk yarn from Handmaiden Fine Yarns, a Canadian company. Again, I used the pattern from Knitty, but made the bewb all in one piece. I don’t know if the lady has received it yet, but I hope she loves it.

I like to knit and stitch things for other people, but I often wonder if it is worth the effort. I made several nice baby things for the husband’s cousin, and when she asked if I made them and I said yes, her response was “Cool”. Yeah. Maybe it is time to only make things for people who ask for them and appreciate the time and effort that goes into them.

How do you feel about making things for other people? Do you get more enthusiastic reactions that I have been getting?

    Hi Heather,
    I enjoy knitting for others but it’s true not everyone appreciates it. I have found that (god I hate saying this) but younger people don’t seem to have the same appreciation, but some do, I guess it just depends on the person, I have to get cracking after xmas and make some of those to take to the cancer center.

    Well, when I admired some wristlets that a friend is knitting for herself, she offered to make me a pair. I’ll figure out something to stitch for her in return. I do have at least some idea of the effort that is involved!

    But totally get what you mean. I’ll let you know what reaction I get to the ornaments I’m giving people this Christmas.
