      I know — and it’s hard to make people understand how much time and expertise went into a hand-knitted item when they can go to their local IKEA and get a fine-gauge cable-knit afghan for $39.95. I worry about the people who price their knits so cheaply — do they really need the money that badly that they’re willing to work for less than minimum wage, in which case I feel terribly for them and want to help them, or do they not need the money but just want a little pocket cash for their hobby and so they’re willing to undersell knitters who really do need the money? Either way, it’s kind of depressing….
