Amen! One of the gals in my knitting group labored for months over a lovely baby blanket. The reception was a bit less than Ho-hum. So disappointing.

Enjoyed your list. So true.

The level of vitriol is astonishingšŸ„“.
Do you find this to be true in knitting groups as well, or is it isolated to on-line forums?
Whenever someone in our little group begins spouting politics, I just pay much more attention to the stitches of my project until she's done.
As to vitriol, that seems to be limited to anonymous online forums/comments and whoever the news-cameras and microphones are trained upon.

Anyone you meet may be a knitter, you never know. If they are a caring, loving person, who loves to give of themselves, they may be a knitter. I was sitting in ICU knitting. A cardiologist sat next to me and ask what I was knitting. I told him and he admired my project. "Wait here" he said. He returned with his beautiful sweater HE was knitting for his wife.

A readily true set of words. Thanks for sharing this.

That is so beautiful. Whenever I see a man knitting, I usually sit looking at him in awe. There was this guy who travelled on the same train as I, and he would be standing in the corner of the car knitting away. I mean those DPNs would be flying. I asked him one day, what was he knitting, he was knitting a pair of socks. The yarn was beautiful.

I will never forget the post from one KPer who gave her daughter in law a hand knit or crocheted gift. After leaving she returned as she forgot something only to catch her DIL dropping her gift into the trash. I made the decision then and there to ask is a knitted gift was welcome or not.
