”Grandpa and grandma, I will earn a lot of money in the future, and our family will eat braised pork every day!”   ”Okay!” The old couple smiled happily.
In a house of more than ten square meters, the light bulbs have the lowest wattage, and the lights are dim and yellow.
The poorest family is the warmest.
  Jiang Mu didn’t waste any time and immediately brought the wool and needle with her back to the Sun’s home.
Sun HongFen looked at her bright red wool and knew it was a good product without even touching it, so she was more careful when starting to craft the gloves.
  ”Grandma, I want to learn how to knit.
Isn't it the Chinese New Year? I want to knit a pair of gloves for my mother,” Jiang Mu was a little embarrassed to admit it.
  ”Good girl, it’s great that you’re so filial, you should make an effort to treat your mother well.
She doesn’t have it easy.” Sun HongFen felt distressed when she thought of Zhao Yue’s situation.
  Needless to say, Jiang Mu also knew this.
When she went back today, she saw her mother was making plans.
She already knew that their family didn’t have enough money.
Under such circumstances, when she went home with the wool and meat, her mother didn't say a word.
She was still the same as before, only smiling gently.
Zhao Yue was such a good mother, Jiang Mu naturally wanted to let her live comfortably.
  ”Weaving gloves looks difficult, but it's actually very simple.
You're so smart, you'll definitely be able to learn it in no time.” Sun HongFen reassured her kindly.
  Jiang Mu also felt that she would definitely be able to learn it, especially since she wasn’t actually only 15 years old.
However, the reality was that by the time Sun HongFen had already finished knitting one, and she hadn't even finished knitting two rows.
  Even by the time Sun Yue called Jiang Mu to go home and sleep, she still hadn't finished the palm part of the glove.
  ”You'd better let the wool go.” Looking at the red wool that was almost in a mess, Sun Quan was speechless.
“Grandma will knit two pairs for you tomorrow.
This wool is good stuff, and it won't stand up to your mistreatment,” Sun HongFen joked with a smile.
  Jiang Mu was a little embarrassed, so she left all the needles and threads at the Sun’s house and went home.
  As soon as she went out, the lights in Sun's house went out.
Seeing this, Jiang Mu felt that she had overlooked something.
  ”Don't stay at your grandma's house for too long at night.” Zhao Yue reminded her softly when she returned.
  Jiang Mu instantly understood; the electricity bill must be very expensive for them.
  Zhao Yue thought she was upset by her slip-up, and added, “But you can invite Grandma Sun's family to our house.
In the future, when mom is not at home, there will be someone to take care of you.”   Jiang Mu hugged her arm and snuggled up to her, “Mom, you can be at ease when you go out, don't worry about me.
I'm not a child and I can play with Sun Quan, you don't have to worry.”   Zhao Yue patted her head feeling very relieved.
  *   Early the next morning, after Zhao Yue and Jiang Mu had breakfast, Zhao Yue went out, and Jiang Mu went to Sun's house.
  Unexpectedly, Grandma Sun's hands were so fast; the two pairs of red gloves had already been knitted.
  ”MuMu, let's see if you are satisfied?” Sun HongFen handed over the gloves.
Jiang Mu put them on directly and they were soft and warm.
  The gloves are finely woven and although there are no patterns, they are bright red and very festive.
Seeing them, Jiang Mu is more confident about the next part of her plan.
  ”Grandma Sun, can we weave the kind of gloved that have each finger separated?”   ”It takes a little more effort, but I can still weave it.”   ”Grandma, how about we do a business?” Jiang Mu sat down and asked with a smile.
  Sun HongFen was getting old, so she didn't quite understand what she said, so Sun Quan asked, “What do you want to do?”   Jiang Mu pointed to the two big balls of wool on the bed, “The rest of the wool will be woven into gloves.
20 cents for one pair; 30 cents for a pair with five fingers separated; 50 cents for one with patterns on it.”   Sun Quan understood her plan in an instant.
“MuMu, selling items is hard work to do.
It won’t be easy for you two.
You and your mother have a different life now than you did before.
You need to save money.
I don’t have anything to do at home and it’s easy to knit a pair of gloves.
I don’t want your money.”   Sun HongFen hasn’t yet realized what Jiang Mu wants to do yet.
  ”You want to sell gloves?” Sun Quan understood immediately.
Before Jiang Mu could speak, Grandma Sun turned pale when she heard the offer and grabbed her hand to persuade her.


“MuMu, you can't do such speculative things.
What will happen if you get caught by the police?”


The old woman was really worried about her, Jiang Mu felt warm in her heart.
She held the rough palm of the old lady and smiled cutely, “Grandma, don't worry, it's different now.
The radio said, 'Let some people get rich first.’ This is a policy encouraged by the state and you won't be arrested.”


Even so, Sun HongFen was still a little worried, “Then let Xiao Quan go with you.
He’s a boy and he can protect you in case something happens.”


“Yes, I will protect you.” Sun Quan agreed.


The matter of knitting gloves for sale was settled in this way.


Jiang Mu did not give up and continued to learn, but the facts proved that she might not have much talent in this area, even a boy like Sun Quan was better than her.


Even using the old needles at home, within half a day he went from unskilled to proficient.
He succeeded in making three pairs of gloves with the simplest thumb and palm separated pattern.


In comparison, Jian Mu had finally finished knitting the palm part, but there was a hole on the left and a hole on the right.
Her weaving was loose flimsy.


It turned out that Grandpa Sun had also worked in a textile factory before and was very experienced.
She was the only one lacking.


Jiang Mu packed the knitted gloves into her schoolbag just before all the adults were set to get off work, and she took the bus with Sun Quan for half an hour to an electronic parts factory.


This is a T-junction where traffic stops, but the two sides of the street are not very lively.
There are only a few small restaurants, newsstands and grocery stores along the street.


Jiang Mu chose a place on the side of the road, spread a light blue long cloth on the ground, and put the gloves on top.


“Can this work? Will anyone buy it?” Sun Quan looked around, but no one paid attention to them, so he was very doubtful.


In fact, Jiang Mu didn't know much about selling things.
Although she planned well, this was the first time she sold something in her two lifetimes.


However, it's one thing to be uneasy in the heart, and she still had to hold back to protect her face.


Jiang Mu smiled confidently, “Don't worry, just watch your sister!” The iron gate was pushed open and groups of workers poured out of the factory, some pushing bicycles, some walking, and the street became lively in an instant.
