Trust me on this one

I’ve gotten a rather tricky knitting assignment. It’s complex, it’s a deadline and it’s stealth. It’s ordered by a non-knitter and has quite some contradictive terms. It took me a while to figure out but I think I know what to do. The end result will be a bit unusual, although perfectly normal for a Knitter, and I’m not really looking forward to all the million questions I will receive. All those inevitable questions that will come up when someone has a clear image of how something should be done and then that thing isn’t done that way and they don’t trust me when I try to explain. Like when I was knitting socks in the lunch room at work and someone asked me for whom they were and I answered that they were for me. The person started questioning this, she thought the socks were for a child since they “looked so small” and I had to defend my poor socks and my knitting skills and assure her that I knew what I was doing. Those questions, I’m not looking forward to those. I will try to dodge the questions and blame it all on the person ordering the project. The project will be good¬†and fill it’s purpose but perhaps not crafted in the most conventional way (people really should stop being so conservative), and that’s all that matters. We’ll see how it goes.
