She Who Must Be Obeyed

"But, mittens are nice too," I said. I did not add that mittens are much easier to knit. I did say, "I've never knitted gloves from handspun yarn before."

"Doesn't matter, Miz Hotshot Book Writer. Besides which, you have another braid of the exact same roving, plus a skein of yarn in the same colorway, so you can knit mittens up the wazoo if that's what you really want."

"No need to be crude," I said, frowning.

"I'm not being crude. I'm just being emphatic."

"... emphatic," I said, not quite convinced.

"Gloves. I want to be gloves."

Damn stubborn yarn anyway.
