the DPNs are up to $93.99 now!

they are so pretty - but NO WAY would I spend that much...
if I had a LOTaLOTaLOT of money, I'd buy those for Robin, but I don't think she'd ever use them since they're too pretty.

Hey, they're hand-made, one of a kind! If I had the money, I'd sure as heck purchase them.

Would you use them, or display them in a glass case?

If I had the money I'd donate it to Katrina victims

well, I'd use them!

I am also a potter(though haven't been able to do clay much with having to raise my child for 17 years alone until my recent marriage) Anyway, yes, you can buy a set of dishes for 10 bucks at WalMart or puchase a hand-thrown plate by an artist for 40 bucks+. If I had the money, I would help out fellow artisans. Kinda like the person here who was upset that she was asked by a relative to knit something for cheap. Art/craft takes talent and time, and I think it's worth the money (even though at this time of my life, and probably forever, I don't have the money to purchase things that way).

At the same time, I'm big with recycling. So perhaps I'm just confuse-d.

:D

:thinking: I guess considering that they are hand made, it probably would be worth the money...I just have a hard time spending alot of $$ in one place

Wow! Those are AWESOME! Did y'all see the gallery?? Their stuff is soooo cool! If I had the money (and by that I mean the money to cover it times about 10 to compensate for the lack of desire to throw my money to the wind), I'd SO buy those! But I most certainly would NOT actually use them!!! They'd be my pretty things. My knitting eye candy. (Insert Gollum voice here) My precious :drooling:
