1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Trendy Scarves? on: December 24, 2007 03:53:34 PM
I think chunky scarves made out of slub yarn (the kind that goes thick and thin) are big right now.  I think there are some great hand-dyed yarn options out there.
I know I like them! Grin

Thanks Craftsters!
As soon as it happened I just KNEW y'all would understand.  Grin
I think most people are right in that she obviously doesn't "get" that it took some time and effort to knit her a present and that it was different (at least to me) than just buying her something.  I am going to; encourage her to donate it to our auction (if it comes up again), try to forget this ever happened (since we are work friends) and never knit something for her again.

I am too but I have to keep my cool because it's at work.  Sad 
Also, I am ok with the fact that she doesn't like it (although it's a totally cute hat) but I am bugged that she doesn't have it in her to be a gracious recipient.  Not classy!

Thank you for the responses.  Smiley  I think I am going to encourage her to contribute it to the auction.  Either someone else will want the hat or I will buy it back. 

Still, I have to admit that it's making not like this person as much as I once did and I am going to have to work on getting past that. 

It has definitely taught me a lesson about knitting for other people.  In the future I think i am just going to knit for close friends and family and other craftsters who can appreciate the effort.  Wink

Here's the deal, I knit a hat for a coworker last year and I kinda knew she didn't like it when I gave it to her.  Here response was polite but less than enthusiastic.  At the time, I offered to knit a new item for her if she didn't like it and she insisted that she did and wanted to keep it.  Now, an entire year later, she just made a crack about contributing it to our annual auction at work.  It's an event where people donate items to auction off and the proceeds go to charity.  I didn't know what to say to her when she said that so I didn't say anything.  So...can I ask to have it back or what?  I am kinda seething about it.  Or do I let it go?  Or should I encourage her to give it to the auction because at least then I can buy it back (it's actually a cute hat) or let someone else buy it?  Any ideas on how to deal with this?

Wow! Your hat is sooo pretty!  Shocked  Thanks so much for providing a link to the pattern.  It is going on THE LIST.  Which I admit is getting pretty long but still...
Again, Great Job!  Smiley

Thanks Everyone!  Smiley
I am right now wearing this at work and laughing about the fact that I'm dressed up as this messed up clown and working on excel spreadsheets.  Too fun!
