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!!

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.

Hahaha, that sounds fantastic! I've overknit while watching a movie/tv show, but never turned an extra heel! Hahahaha!

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.

That's great! Thanks for sharing. I'd be tempted to keep it for laughs.

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