what do you knit when you don't...

what do you knit when you don't wear many winter clothes, and neither do most of your family/friends... and you don't have many kids in your life, so knitting toys seems like a waste... and you're a self-admitted sour sally when it comes to mug cozies, jewelry, animal clothing, things without actual purpose, and anything too femme or religiousy.

Here's the finished product

FINALLY!

I just finished a very easy two-row pattern prayer shawl. It has taken MONTHS to finish due to a busy work schedule and numerous involuntary froggings. My toddler grand-daughter's feet got caught in the yarn, and as she merrily ran around the living room, I watched about a foot of fabric disappear. That happened twice. I'll be happy to move this one on to church.

10-Stitch Blanket but 0-Stitch Brains...

Has anybody attempted/finished a 10-stitch blanket such as http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ten-stitch-blanket ? I've tried and frogged 4 times now. I can't get past the corner stuff. It's either too many instructions, or too many new concepts for a newbie, or I'm missing something, or whatever. I've tried looking for a video of it being made, to no avail.
