Thanks Auntie, but .....

Auntie has very kindly given me this book - the patterns in it are so fine, so intricate and so... well amazing - Henry VIII, in full regalia, Queen Elizabeth, an egyptian man, pilgrim fathers, I could spend ages just looking through it. Auntie bought it for herself when she retired, but has now decided she doesn`t have time to knit anything from it, so gave it to me, which was really nice of her, but.....

If she doesn`t have time and she is retired, why does she think I will be able to make better use of it, when I work full time????

Because you're a knitting addict - clearly your aunt is only a dabbler, and recognises that, as a true obsessive, you will succumb to knitting at least one thing from the book ;)
