I feel ya, I’m 55 now and I’ve spent the last 15 years speaking my mind- Would have told him “No thank you, but I don’t want to… " If they press further I say " I want it to be a hobby I enjoy on my terms, not a job I dread on your terms.”

Somone saw my super bright kaliedoscope poncho, and BEGGED for me to make them one.
In black.
Completely in black.

Worse: it was my sons bff who he secretly had a crush on.
Soooo, he wanted it too.

Black?
The entire thing in ONE color, and that color is BLACK?!

I bore sooooo easily with one color or one stitch…
For me?
No.

BUT…I don’t do commission work.
I am too cranky.

Luckily I haven’t been asked…. For crocheting… but for sewing yes… I think is part of the reason why I don’t sew as much.

Is there a crochet/knitting version of @canyousewthisforme on Instagram? They are a funny account run by a sewist who accepts post submissions of people overstepping a sewist’s boundaries, but also of sewists standing up for themselves and respectful experiences between the sewist and the other person called “sweets”. If you enjoy their posts too, please reply to my comment!
