...but I cannot show you the hat I knitted for Rolf. He is wearing it already. Which tells me that he likes it.
Talking about people liking what you knit: My Mom received the "Two-tone-top with a twist" ca. 10 days ago, she phoned me when the package arrived. "So," I asked "how do you like it?" She answered that it is "interesting". Oh dear, knowing my Mom I got a bad feeling at once. Interesting in her language means more or less: "what was she thinking? Does she really want me to wear this? maybe I'll give it a try..." Bad Karma, I can tell you. She said, however, that she liked the colours.
Last week I got another call: this time she seemed a bit more excited about it, she told me that she washed it and it lengthened a bit (I didn't have the time to give it a rinse, look how late it arrived anyway and I sent it off in the last week of November!) which seemed to make her like it more. Hmm...
So now I am waiting for the third call (three time's a charm, right?) to confirm that the looming "interesting" is gone for good.
The other TTT went to my sister. I haven't heard anything from her yet. I do know that the package arrived because the socks for her boyfriend were received well. I don't mean to be a stickler for big thank you notes, but an acknowledgement of my work in some form would be appropriate, don't you think?
