I am afraid to contract out to other knitters for 2 reasons 1) quality. What if they're terrible? and 2) it only pays about 10 cents an hour. That's slave labor even if it does help the doggies!
I always let people know my timeline and thankfully, so far it has worked out that everyone has said, no problem, I'll wait until X month. I LOVE doggie people. They are so nice. Not that kitty people aren't but, can you imagine a kitty in a sweater?
I just wish I had MORE time so I could get my own stuff done too. I have a sweater for my hubby that is almost done, just need to do the neckline and I'm putting it off. He's dying to get it!!!
