Pay Attention!!!

I like to knit while sort of watching television---got to the heel on my sock, turned said heel and proceeded to knit the foot---got to end of foot, still watching Say Yes To The Dress, and turned another heel and kept on knitting----Finally noticed that the sock was feeling and looking funny, sooooo tinked it back and corrected my inattention----was a stupid thing to do, but made a very interesting looking sock!!

Oh, oh. Never try to watch

Oh, oh. Never try to watch T.V. and have a glass of wine while knitting either! Very horrible things can happen!

Hahaha... this isn't the first time someone has done this!

This just goes to show you that turning a heel is not that hard, if you can do it while watching TV and not even remember that you've already done this before.

I have to say I haven't had

I have to say I haven't had that happen in a while. ;-) I sometimes forget to turn the heel and skip to the gussets, though. I sometimes knit while reading, so can relate. Not so much to TV as I seldom watch it. Thank heavens it isn't too much of a hassle to tink back for socks! Still, I always say, "You can't be afraid to rip." -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
