I always knit while watching TV, it seems a crime if I didn't, all that time would be wasted! But I was taught a lesson Sunday night, it was the Wimbledon men's final Federal vs. Roddick, both my favourite players. I was knitting some socks for my cousin's birthday, the pattern was quite easy and has a nice rhythms to it. So I was clicking away cheering for both, then halfway through the match I suddenly realised with a horror that I had picked up stitches without shaping the heel!! The sock was looking more like a sack! I didn't rip it back there and then as it was way past midnight by the time I realised it, the sock was finished the next day. Note to self: better choose something less shapely when watching Wimbledon finals, it's obviously more absorbing than average TV programmes.
