Not to yarn, of course not!
To someone who rang up and said "I know you knit". Uh oh, you know where this is heading.

"Can you make a stripy where's wally hat? By Thursday (this was last night, so 24 hours really to hand it over for wearing on Thursday morning). For someone who doesn't actually like fancy dress."
"Um, no, sorry, it would take about ten hours and I just don't have the time." I actually said that.
What I should have said was Bwaha ha ha ah aha ha aha!
But my polite upbringing came out (darn it!).
I do actually like to make requests, that way you know the person will like what you are giving them. But maybe I should start to say I like making reasonable requests.
