I know the cats like it but...

My current WIP is a Christmas tree skirt that has lots of cables and, while quite lovely, is taking a ton of time to knit up. The cats both love it as you can see.

But the real question is who shall be the ultimate recipient of the tree skirt? My first thought was I would give it to a friend of mine as a wedding gift (he was married in September). I thought it would be nice for their first Christmas together. But then I started thinking, what if they don't like it? And then I give it to them and they act all polite and nice and then shove it in a box somewhere. Or worse, they throw it out or donate it. The yarn for this bad boy was not inexpensive and the amount of time I'm spending on it is not inconsequential. I thought about asking them if they liked it but then would they say yes just to be nice? Should I try to find someone who already likes it (I have a couple of people who have appropriately fawned over it and expressed interest in owning it). Or should I just keep it for myself or, rather, my cats, who seem to have claimed it already.

How's your Christmas knitting going?

I say keep it for yourself (the kitties) and then see who REALLY gives you compliments on it when they visit your house (or see it in holiday snapshots). Then NEXT year you can make some for gifts for those folks :-)
