En kvik kollega / A smart colleague
I går strikkede jeg videre til et andet møde, og der kom hun så og sagde, at hun skam gerne ville betale, hvis jeg ville strikke strømper til hende. Jeg måtte selv vælge garn og farve og alting!
Nu er jeg jo ikke meget for sådan noget bestillingsarbejde, men lige præcis de her strømper er der faktisk ikke navn på. Så hun får dem. Med alle de argumenter, den fæle hoste, og så fordi hun altid er så enormt sød og hjælpsom. Men UDEN betaling. (Jeg hader sådan noget. Jeg strikker fordi jeg har lyst!)
Strømperne er i Opal Hundertwasser med glimmer. Ih, det er fint! Jeg har brugt 70 gram (as usual) og striberne passer perfekt. Meget tilfreds.
I dag står den på strik-agtigt...... Først lagersalg hos Wilfert, og i aften strik-dans-noget i Dansehallerne. Skøn dag!
It has been a busy week, even though it has been short. But I did manage to knit my way through a few meetings. For instance this Thursday, where one of my colleagues with a nasty cough found a moment to try on the finished sock. She proclaimed that it fit her PERFECTLY! And the heel was the best kind of heel! If I really didn't knit for other people? Her house is turned east-wards, and it is so COLD! (Really!)
Yesterday I knitted on at another meeting, and there she was, telling me that she would love to pay, if I would only knit her some socks. I could pick the yarn and color and everything!
I don't really like knitting for others, as you may know, if they are to order projects. But these special socks didn't have a name on them. So she will have them. Due to all her reasons for needing socks, the nasty cough and because she is always so nice and smiling and helping others. But NO payment. (I hate that. I knit because I want to!)
The socks are made with sparkling Opal Hundertwasser. I love the sparkles! They took 70 grams (as usual) and the stripes match perfectly. I'm very happy.
Today is filled with knitting-stuff..... First I'm going to a yarn-sale at Wilfert, and tonight I'm going to see the knit-dance-performance made with Stephen West. Lovely day!
