I know for many people, sewing their own clothes is a thing of the past. However, crochet and knitting came back into fashion, offering many fun patterns for people to make themselves in the colors and material they prefer. For me, this is a big selling point. I like to knit. But I know some people frown when they get knitted gifts instead of what they consider "real gifts", ie stuff that was bought and that has a receipt (maybe to give it back?) Do you think it's cheesy? A waste of time? Would you try it?
