We have this huge three week long workshop where some contracted vendors also take part. They have this "assistant" lady, who came up to me and said:
"You know, I've been watching you the last week, and you wear the most beautiful sweaters and shawls... would you tell me where do you get them, because I would love to get things like that..."
When I told her that I knitted them myself her face fell open in disbelieve.
"Oh, but the knitting is so even, and they are so special and fit you so well..."
"Well, you know that is the advantage of handmade things..."
I have to tell ya, it felt so good...
