Should I be annoyed?

I've been trying all week to upload these photos, and for some reason blogger wasn't working with me. I wanted to share with you the gifts I made for a friend. She's due any day now and Tuesday was her baby shower. I crochet'd the red hat and knit the purple and white booties and hat. The hat is cut off I was quickly taking pix as I was wrapping up the present to get going. I was running late (but what else is new?) The hat is a pattern my sister made up and she's going to submit it to the Pattern a Day calendar. I'm glad! It's cute pattern if you go to her blog and look at the pix of her daughter has one on.. Go a head check it out!
anyways so seeing that I can knit and crochet such cute little numbers for friends one would think that I would make the same type of things for my own children. (Which I have done and still do from time to time BTW)
So the question I have for you (if you chose to answer) Should a gal who's able to (or potentially able to) knit such fantastic things, be annoyed when people buy (perfectly cute BTW) knitted hats and things from a store for her children? It does make me wonder, why I get so annoyed though...Is it rational? Probably not but am I the only knitter who does that?

I love the items!!! Yep, I'd be annoyed for sure! I'm going to check out the hat pattern. I need more patterns, don't I?

That red hat is cute. The color is especially beautiful.
