    I always hold out hope for the people who make that rude argument that knitted socks are a "cheap gift" since you can buy a giant polybag full of them at the Wally-World for $3. Once you go hand knit for socks, you never wanna go back. :) I think a large part of it is that a great many American super consumers have lost sight of what a difference it makes having high quality goods, albeit very few of them, vs having lots and lots of cheap crap that doesn't last. I fear at least some people can never be broken from the "more is better" mindset. :( Those people aren't worth the effort.

    p.s. I <3 the yarn harlot. Stephanie Peal McPhee is amazing!
