I'll Take Knitting for $200 Alex.

Can you guess what this is?

Yes, it is two Light Sabers holding some knitting. But, that is not really what I was asking. Can you guess what the knitting is? I will give you a hint. I was working on something a couple of weeks ago and when my aunt saw it she said that she wanted one, too. The conversation went something like this:

Aunt: Ooohh. What is that you are making?

Me: A ________. Do you like it?

A: Yes.

M: Do you want one?

A: Yes!

M: What color do you want?

A: Purple.

M: What shade of purple?

A: What do you mean?

M: What shade of purple? Like a light purple, medium, or dark kind of color?

A: I don't know what you mean.

M: Would you like something the color of the lavender flowers or something the color of eggplant?

A: Oh (eyes got bit with the, I get it now look). Eggplant. Yes, eggplant (a big smile comes on her face, the I am excited that I am going to get something that I want look).

M: Okay. When I finish what I am working on, I will start on yours.

A: Okay.

I have seen my aunt at least 3 times since this initial conversation took place. The second time I saw her, she noticed that I was knitting something else and mentioned to me that she thought I was going to make her item next. Then I had to explain that I had left my knitting at my grandparents house so I did not have all the supplies that I needed with me, but as soon as I got it back and finished the project on those needles, that I would make her item.

That was 3 objects ago (oops).
