Where do my knitted items go?

Recently someone asked me how many things I knit (or crochet) do I keep for myself? After taking a closer look at what I have made over the past year--not many. I was a surprised at how much of my knitting is given away or donated to a cause. Though that's not a bad thing. I should make some things specifically for me.
