I finished both fronts of the Hex Coat! But here’s the weird thing …… although they were knit exactly alike and the proper amounts of stitches were bound off according to the directions, one side seems to have a greater angel of decrease than the other. I have checked,rechecked and triple checked this, but there it is. My guess is that my row gauge shifted somewhere along the way. Am I interested in ripping all of that moss stitch and trying to correct a problem that if noticable at all can be fixed during blocking? nah! The finished tally is: two fronts one sleeve. The back was cast on for last night during the Sopranos. (which btw, I am glad I tell you GLAD – did you hear that Cara?? – that I dropped HBO)
I am working diligently on the Hex because I told myself I would not start another project until it is done. And there is another project waiting in the wings. A glorious, fun, colorful project that I will tell you about later.
……. a month or so ago, I decided to drop HBO and pick up Showtime instead. I wasn’t watching anything on HBO except for The Sopranos. And frankly their long hiatus had kind of pissed me off like that so called friend in junior high that for mysterious reasons wouldn’t talk to you for a week or more and then suddenly was all sunshine and smiles. So I drop HBO and fall in love with Showtime – catching up on past episodes of Weeds, loving The Tudors and of course This American Life.
Cara, God love her, could not believe I had done this. She thought it was by far the stupidest thing I have ever done. She would call to see if I was watching The Bad News Bears on Showtime. Or maybe Ghostbusters. she even got Georgie involved.
So I went over to Flair’s to watch the final epsiode of The Sopranos. I will not go into details since maybe not everyone has seen it yet —– but ha! sure it may have been artistically brilliant and embraced some kind of vision, but I think the viewers got whacked.
