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.

still think if you went to the hardware store and got some thick twine or rope and used my size 35 needles or get size 50, you could quickly make a rockin area rug.

Now you've got me thinking about it for the screened in porch.
