I started a new project, and couldn't resist showing it off at work today. I didn't get the reaction I had expected (sort of a "Wow! You're good."). Instead, the woman I work with kind of grimaced, and quietly told me that it looked like a mouse.
"It's actually a rat. But yes, isn't it great?!"
"You're knitting a rat?"
"Yep. A whole scarf of them."
"A rat?" (I think she wanted to be sure she heard me correctly.)
"Yep. It's for my daughter."
"You're knitting a rat for your daughter?"
"She's going to love it."
"But it's a rat. You're knitting a rat."
I don't think she gets it.
But isn't it cute?!
