a knitter navigates through life

Who are these people and why do I have to be related to them?
My sister is moving into a new apartment this weekend and made a request for a specific housewarming item she would like for me to knit. It seems her new apartment is one of those trendy, all-concrete, exposed-ductwork type of lofts, and she is worried that her little tootsies will get chilly on those hard cold floors. So she asked me to knit her an area rug. I stared at her for a good thirty seconds before I realized she was serious. Afterward, when I had picked myself up off the floor, I patted her on the shoulder and said, "It's good to want things." Nonknitters are so cute sometimes.
