  • Wow! Looks good, my dear! I can’t wait to see the finished sweater. 🙂

    Katie =^..^=

    P.S. Good luck with Homeland?

  • While a certain character was in an abandoned warehouse? are you watching Season 2?
    There are some tv shows that one cannot knit through — only the occasional stockinette.

    • Season 3, episode 3! ACK!

  • The front of your sweater is just mezmerizing! Although I must say – when I saw it today I was immediately reminded of the Deep in the Forest Mittens you posted yesterday. Of course, maybe that’s just me. I think they would look great together though. You should definitely make them!

  • I know I am WAY behind, but I am currently like this with The Wire. About halfway through the last season now.

    • I am saving The Wire. It’s too rare. Once I watch The Wire, what else can be as good?

      • Luther?
        It has both cable twisting moments and Idris Elba

  • That sweater is excellent, so rambly and swingy, Ann!

  • Well, I haven’t watched homeland, but I do love your sweater!

  • Your sweater is just awesome – I love it! Welcome to my world regarding television and knitting! I’m a Bostonian and was knitting a sweater during the world series. Need I say more? Countless stitches and hours of work frogged in the wink of an eye. This is THE ONLY time I can say it was so worth it (sorry Cardinal fans – you played a great series)!

    Enjoy your sweater – it’s truly a masterpiece!

  • So. If this is “knit your life”, I am then fascinated by the accidental revearsing of the sleeve shaping. What, if anything, does this represent for the knitter’s life?

    Food for thought ( along with the Pay Day and Almond Joy….)

  • It sounds less like Knit Your Life and more like Knit Your Drama, now! But it’s all good, as long as you’re having fun 🙂

  • I was knitting through the World Series…..doing OK as long as St Louis was at bat, but almost everytime the Redsox came up, I forgot to change colors on color changey skirt I’m working on……I almost started the whole project over as it started looking so very ripped back. UG.
    I’m going to stick to audiobooks until I finish.

    I love that sweater of yours….it does look like real life!

  • I am afraid to knit while watching Homeland (jumping out of your skin, gasping and sharp knitting needles don’t play well together). Claire Danes is the most amazing actress…and episode 3 was amazing, I won’t say any more…

  • I have a feeling you’re going to want more. Where can I place my bet?

  • There are a few shows I watch that aren’t compatible with knitting in that way. For those occasions I always have a simple dishcloth on the needles. Even if I somehow manage to screw up the pattern (how???) it won’t matter.

  • Well, it is your life you’re knitting and how wonderful to have a second chance at getting any part of your life just right!

    I count the days to each new Homeland episode. And only knit my TGV shawl while watching. How can I accomplish more than k2p2 when confronted with stuff like season 3, episode 6? I’m afraid my guage tightens right along with the plot.
