I really do eschew most television. I watch my netflix movies and have 2 or 3 shows that I like to watch but could miss. Except one. A reality show. I really, really like it. The Amazing Race. I will spare you the details of my obsession -- my current favorites (BJ and Tyler) or my all-time favorites (the Bowling Moms) -- and only say this ... we knitters have to field a team.
It's a no-brainer people. Knitters criss-crossing the globe, interacting with different cultures, towing their socks and hats and skeins on airplanes, trains, hot-air balloons, and speed boats. We are logical thinkers, we are risk-takers, we are creative and can think "outside the box." A team of expert knitters would kick some butt on this show. D'ya think the Yarn Harlot is available for next season's show?
In other news, I didn't get much knitting done last night b/c BB and I ... went. out. to. see. a. band. The Hackensaw Boys. They were incredible and I actually cannot figure out when the last time was that we went out to see a band. It was great -- the venue was fab, friends were there, and the band jammed.
So here we are: the 1st sock nearing completion and the sad bag waiting for some tearing out. Yup. Once again confirming the knitting rule that the less accessible the yarn, the greater your chance of running out, I will not have enough yarn to finish the handles. So, I'm going to take out some of the one handle that I finished and work something out with the oatmeal colored yarn. I don't like the idea of white handles, but there we have it.
I hope to have a finished bag and sock to post soon!
