knitters are the ones who truly appreciate a knitted item
Very true. The first time I wore one of my cardis I was making copies at a Kinko's and a very chic, older woman (outfitted in upscale attire) walked over, started touching my sweater and asking if I'd made it. Whoa! She immediately started to rave so I tolerated the touchy-feely thing. Then she mentioned the pockets, asking what technique I'd used and said she was a long-time knitter but had yet to attempt anything as 'difficult' as my cardi. (I kept thinking it was really simple and basic.)

I walked away feeling good that a fellow knitter, and someone who seemingly had the means to afford expensive apparel, thought highly of my efforts (and took it upon herself to offer glowing comments).

Keeping to the knitting basics
