On selfishness I

"Notaverynicethingatall.Youdon'tknowanything.Allyouthinkaboutis-yourself." A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami)

The text on the mitts is in Norwegian, obviously. And all it has to do with my relationship with the recipient, is that we had lots of fun discussing the text. I really like this friend. Really. (Just so there are no misunderstandings..) I find this text quite important for understanding the concept in this book, although I haven't yet understood it all. I'm not sure I'm supposed to, really, and that is one of the things I like about it.

Murakami mitts I [@ravelry] specs:
Pattern: Improvised
Size: Glove size 7
Needles: 2.5 and 3.0 mm
Yarn: About 50 g of PT Panda in main color, and about 25 g in contrast color

I haven't read the book, I don't speak Norwegian, but I have to say you demonstrate some remarkable enthusiasm and creativity over this book. I admire the way you have taken this shared book, these ideas that matter especially to you and your reading group friends and you've created a symbolic and WEARABLE representation of that as a gift. What a treasure.

As a lover of books and knitting and friends... well, the whole thing makes me feel a little warmer and happier today. Thank you!
