Yes, I do agree with you! Babysitting would be more profitable than knitting!
I've always told my friends who say I should sell my knitting:
"I knit for love, I sell ART for a paycheck!"
And believe me, I sometimes think the ART CONSULTANT (that's me) makes more money per piece of art than the most talented artist does. That is another vocation that is entirely underpaid as a whole!
Not many make it to the big time in their lifetime!
