Valuable Gifts

Well I’ve been sitting here, nearly half way through the socks I started knitting longer ago than I should admit…

and I’ve been thinking about VALUE.

A really tricky thing with an exchange, possibly particularly a handmade exchange is how to achieve an equal exchange.

A monetary value doesn’t quite fit, neither necessarily does a time spent value.

My suggestion is that the gift should be the equivalent to a gift you would give a very special, or best friend, possibly a close sibling.

A gift that has been made with care, love & attention to detail.

A gift you would love to receive yourself.
