10:00 pm - "I'll be right up hon, I have 2 rows of seed stitch left (on Wicked), then I want to bind-off."
Glance through directions... just says BO. How? Look further... oh, okay 1x1 rib BO. Now I'm a rather literal kinda gal (who is also involved in a TV mystery and starting to fall asleep) so I proceed with 1x1 rib as opposed to following seed stitch pattern which I'm sure is what they meant. Finish BO, weave in end.
11:00 pm - Whoa, not good! Way funky. (Note, this could have been caught after binding off the first half dozen stitches, but like I said, TV was involved.) It's getting late, the news has come on... I should go to bed. Can't. Undo, pick-up all stitches and proceed with proper seed stitch bind-off.
News is on... Plastic surgeons have come to the rescue of women who love high-heeled shoes with "foot-lifts" which re-pad the ball of the foot to extend their years of comfort in heels and cows in England are bathed in beer for more tasty, tender meat. Okay, not only do I not what to know these things but is this really news? Really? Oh yeah, and there were high speed pursuits in LA... again... of course.
Then, in some unexplainable yardage warp, this is what I end up with... about 1 inch of yarn where before I had 6. Hmmm... a good knitter would put this aside and deal with it properly tomorrow. Yep. But a determined, desperate knitter would tie on more yarn with a big ole' honkin' know and weave that sucker in. Guess which kind I am?
11:30 pm - Jay Leno comes on. I like Leno. I like Monday nights because he does "Headlines" which crack me up. This is bound to mean another hour of sitting here staring at the TV in a semi-coma messing up more knitting.
12:00 pm - Jay announces there will be no Headlines tonight so they can re-visit the Grammys... but before I can put away my knitting Nicholas Cage is out talking about his new movie. More comatose staring.
But that was last night. I just bound off the first sleeve of Wicked and I am not going to do the second tonight, but instead quickly run to bed before Leno appears on my TV.
BTW, This could be another lapse on my part but I ran into a problem with the sleeve stitch count on Wicked. I think they should be knit in multiples of 8 to accommodate the crossover repeats... but it is getting late so I may be wrong... maybe. Oh, and the knitted pocket is a way fun touch.
