|Some close ups of the mitt because I'm really proud of this one.|

Why do I continue to knit for my family when so many things get damaged? These are only a few examples, just off hand I can think of a mitt that mysteriously got cut and several pairs of longies that don't have knees anymore. I'm sure there are other things that have been lost or ruined that no one has told me about. I love to knit! I love my family! So, I love to knit for my family. Yes, sometimes things get lost or destroyed, BUT, what that means is that my family enjoys the things I make. That they wear them and use them. I don't really want to knit (or crochet) things no one likes enough to actually use. I don't want to put tons of time, money, and energy into making things that will never be worn. Things that get used a lot wear out, or get broken, or get lost. That's just how it works. Sometimes I get a little sad when something I've worked that hard on get ruined, but at least that means it is getting used and appreciated. To me that is the greatest compliment!
