I get a bit bored with plain knitting (thus the ad-lib colours) so when I was a good way up the back, I asked her if she would like an animal picture on the front, perhaps a dinosaur?
She thought a while then said 'I know!' and hurried off to find the book with the picture she was thinking of. It took a while to find, but she knew exactly what she was looking for and eventually emerged triumphant from her overloaded bookshelves.
'There!' she announced showing the picture. 'I'd like the mother and the cub please. And the snowflakes!'
'Hmmm,' I said, thinking of the half-completed back. 'Can I change the colours a bit?'
'No,' she said, 'it should be exactly these colours!'
