Knitting with The Soprano's

Olympic Blanket Status: 19 inches complete and 6 inches to go.

Over the weekend I managed to knit 7 inches! This was largely due to watching the entire first season and half of the second season of the HBO series "The Soprano's".

Saturday evening I completely flubbed up a row. I knitted three additional rows in the hopes that the pattern would somehow magically work itself out. It was late, my favorite yarn store was closed, and there were several more "knittable" hours left in the evening. So...I ripped out four rows (MYSELF!!), managed to get the stitches back on the needles and kept on knitting. It was quite an Olympic moment for me.

I had been silently applauding myself as I knitted and watched the Olympics. I thought I might be imbuing the blanket with a champion spirit and "thrill of victory" kind of vibe that might somehow permeate to the baby that will use the blanket.

Alas, after 14 plus hours of Sopranos, I just hope I haven't added too much of a Mafioso stain. If the baby's first words are, "Forget about it"... I might end up swimming with the fishes.
