Day 22: Have you ever stricken someone off your to-crochet-for list because they didn’t appreciate/ take care of your last crocheted gift to them?
No, but I have done that to people who assume that I’m going to make them stuff just because I can crochet. I have a guy friend who said to me, “Well, since you can crochet I guess that you’re gonna make me a hat, aren’t you?” I said, “You have money, go buy one for yourself. Or make your own.” I will do things for charity, like I want to make a bunch of stuffed animals for this abuse victims shelter, but I won’t make it for people who think that they’re “entitled” to receive a gift just because they have known for x-amount of time.
Plus, when I make things for people- they don’t use them. I made (I use to sew) my friend a purse with a panda on it (because she loves pandas) and she was all “Oh, I love it!” and then never used it. There have been a few people who like the gifts, but there the little gifts. Like nail polish, or special drawings. I don’t know.
