Tragedy Sets in... first knitting 4 money scarf returned
You read right folks. My very first project that I knitted for money is being returned to me tomorrow. =(
I am told that it is because the client had all their stuff ($, cc's, etc) stolen last night, but that was said only after she told me the scarf wasn't as thick as she wanted and so she was going to have to buy a "real" scarf for her friend (I showed it to her last week and she didn't mention anything about thickness when it was still in progress.)
I have to say that it really hurt my feelings, and normally I am not so easily penetrated but you know, she sought me out because she saw the scarf I made for Jenny and told me she'd pay me to make her one to. She picked a color combination I thought was unsightly but at least the colors did gel together well. She told me she wanted the cables. I just don't understand how it could have turned out anything but how she wanted it. I mean...why not say when I showed her the in progress scarf that it wasn't as thick as she wanted? At least then I wouldn't feel like I waisted 11 days of my life knitting this scarf when I could be churning out last minute Xmas gifts.
Ugh, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I was so excited that someone liked my knitting enough to pay me to make something but to give it back when so many other people have commented positively on it. Already another co-worker ordered a scarf as a gift for their friend so I'll give it a try.
