I like to knit in the evenings. Other people in my home like to watch TV. Often, this works out very well!
A nice simple pattern combined with a not-too-stressful show = great way to spend the evening.
Complicated pattern...well, then I don't get much out of the show, generally. Too busy counting!
Simple pattern plus really exciting show? Well, then I make all sorts of astonishing errors that should be impossible after all these years of knitting. LOL
Last night I was working on a "must count stitches" pattern while finishing Merlin Season 3 and starting Season 4.
It is a miracle I got a workable bodice out of it! (And aw, man, Lancelot? I liked him... *sigh* And can we please just get rid of Morgana now that they've totally ruined her character?) One of the sleeves is a stitch less wide than the other, in the end, but luckily for me, it looks fine on the doll. It's this pretty dress here, which is probably the last thing I will be knitting for Nieceling's birthday this year, as I'm about out of time.
I'm hoping we have nice weather for this long weekend, so that I might take both Emily and Saila out for some pictures. Poor Emily has been quite neglected this summer, between work, small visitors, and my obsession with making doll clothes as part of Nieceling's September Birthday presents.
