The way I look at it, it's the making it and giving it that's up to me. The wearing it is someone else's responsibility. Knitting something for my girlfriend is sorta like painting a landscape for Monet. I know full well that she could do it better, that's not the point. And I'm pretty sure she won't wear it -- often at least -- which is also not the point. But she WILL understand what went into it, and that's... kinda the point.
