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.
