Random Acts 1, 2, 3, and 4 were put in the mail and sent off today. They are on their way to Canada, which actually caused a bit of knitterly musing. Since Canada is another country (although it hardly seems like it to someone who grew up in the U.P.) I was required to fill out a customs declaration for for each of the packages. Along with who it was to and who it was from, they also wanted to know what was inside and what it was worth. Well, there is a small sweater in there, and about 16 hours of my time. The yarn cost was about $10 per sweater, but I'm not sure how you factor in the value of making thousands of connected little stitches that will one day keep a little person cold on a warm day. What's the value of good will? What's the value of concern? I put down $10, but that seems low from a knitters perspective.
