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).
