My poor Tivo…and knitting

12 Apr

My knitting has come to a stop.  I am highly unmotivated, yes…still…  I casted on, three times (160 stitches) for the bottom 2×2 ribbed band of my mothers day sweater for my mom.  I finished the two inches as called for and just when I started on my second all knit row, I remembered I was supposed to change the needle size to an 8.  “Wait, an 8?” (I say to myself…yes, actually out loud, with no one around) Darnnnn itttt!  Oppsy, I was supposed to do the ribbing in a US5 and the stockinette in an 8!  So I frogged the whole thing, AGAIN!    So after walking away from my knitting for the next hour and doing the dishes, I casted on for the fourth time.  I have yet to actually count the stitches I have casted on, that’s how fed up I am about this project.  I do not even have the motivation to make my beautiful gray pima cotton sweater.  I should do it soon because it was up to 85 degrees here in NJ the other day (just a heat wave, its back down today to normal spring temps again).


And with that heat wave comes, of course, a massive storm.  During the storm last night, lightning struck my neighbors house and blew off his chimney, sending those little red rectangular bricks flying!  The crack of lightning was so loud, my hubby and I woke up, sat straight up and I couldn’t stop shaking for about 4 or 5 minutes from the adrenaline rush my body had just experienced. WOW.  The crack and thunder that happened at that moment, that shook our house, turned on one of my sons toys in the living room and sent a storm surge to my dvd player, TIVO and my internet wifi box (whatever thats called, router maybe?).  So after getting my cable router replaced, we have the internet now, but no TV.  I am already really sad that my TIVO won’t be able to DVR my shows (goodbye People’s Court, Judy Judy and my prime time favs).  I am actually considering cancelling the TV service I have (it’s like, 20 channels [I hate cable]) and just letting my son use my Netflix subscription to watch his shows online.  At least I wont be needed to skip the commercials anymore and I can knit more without distractions.  WIN-WIN?Image

    How I hate that, casting on, knitting, finding out we forgot something, rip it of, do it again, and again… But I love the color of your project !
