but I'll certainly knit for beer. Payment is really not what I'm after, but barter... barter is a completely different thing. It makes it fun, don't you think?
So anyway, Thursdays are fastly become a little knit-in at the local Irish pub. Last week we may have gotten corporate sponsorship. We're sitting in the dining room, and one of the bartenders is leaning through the window that connects it to the bar proper. There are four of us knitting, and she asked if we'd ever knit for money. The answer was a pretty general one. Once you start doing something for money, it becomes work.
"Would you knit for beer?"
I instantly fell in love with this girl. Sweet words like that are not spoken to me daily. So now I'm looking for a pattern for her first request. She wants a long, skinny scarf, in brown and cream tones. So today I'm scouring the internet for a patter that will fit her expectations and hold my interest. 2x2 ribbing is not my thing, trust me. I'll probably design my own, lace or cables, but I guess I'm idea dipping.
Knitter's, there are some ugly scarves out there. I can forgive ugly. What is really killing me is the redundancy. I don't care what fancy stitches you have under that fun fur, it still looks the same. I guess you know that you have something special under there, but the rest of us are clueless. No, no, don't chase us down and correct us, you seem to be having so much fun on your own. Wow, three rants for the price of one.
Can't talk now, must find something Guiness worthy.
