"why do you crochet your friend's bubs stuff?"
It came after spending time with my lovely sister (the very talented Sayraphim), and showing her my current baby blanket project:

The answer I've decided on is simply that I do it out of love. I make stuff for my friend's bubs because I love my friends. And I want to show that love in the form of some cleverly tangled wool. I want to demonstrate love to this new little one who has come into the world. I love to give welcome gifts to these little bubs and I love that those gifts can be made by my hands. I love to crochet (and to be honest, there is also a little bit of me that loves to be able to give away the stuff I make so I don't just end up with piles of crocheted things strewn around the house!)
How about you -
why do you make stuff that you give away?
