The Good, the Bad, and TV

So I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I finished the potholder loop rug! It isn't incredibly huge, mainly because I got tired of knitting the heavy monster, but also because I just need a tiny rug for under my desk. The rug is 31 by 22 inches. I have my feet in the picture to give you an idea, but you may be distracted by the very sexy sandal tan and blisters. I need to make my office homey or I may never get through grad school.

The bad news is that I frogged part of my sock. I am so amazed that I was able to frog the gusset with only a few problems even though I didn't go back stitch by stitch. I am going to look over the work and then retry the gusset this week. I am going to finish these socks if it kills me! The other bad news is that I didn't win anything on the Amazing Lace. I get these grandiose ideas of winning stuff and then I am surprised when I don't win. Oh well. Life goes on. Plus, I bought myself some snazzy knitting-related presents for my upcoming birthday, so life isn't so bad. :) Pictures to come when I "officially" get to open them.


Movies/Shows with Knitting (since I haven't been knitting to the tv recently, but still seem to have been watching television)

The Greatest Show on Earth (one of the audience members knits during a dangerous acrobatic act)

  1. The rug looks great! I hadn't even noticed the tan (can't see any blisters though) until you mentioned it...

    I'm the same way about winning prizes. I always hope and dream that I will win...but when I don't I get sad. I don't think I've ever won anything knitting related in these blog contests yet. Hopefully someday!
