TV night!!!!

Wednesday night is TV night! Oh wait, let me revise that...most nights are TV night. Wednesday is "my show." I adore Project Runway. I think it's because I've had so many clothing failures, both knitting and sewing, that I empathize. I sewed my first failure when I was 12. I sewed a sleeve in upside down, and to this day, I remember the fabric, the design, the "Oh, no!" when I realized what I had done. My mom helped me rip it out. I've done many EXCELLENT sweaters for my DH, who swears I have a 6'5", 250lb boyfriend hidden that I knit for, because the fit is way off. Project Runway is a reality show I can sink my teeth into.

I got really excited, and thanked my husband profusely for not pitching a fit. He graciously flipped the remote to Bravo, and served as my show's Howard Cosell. He rolled his eyes, was wildy creeped out by Tim Gunn, hated Heidi's voice, and thought Peanut shouldn't be allowed to breed. And it got better. I had to fill him in on who is what....and he proclaimed it the stupidest show ever.

He snorted that I was not even watching! HA! I had a lap full of knitting and a dog that wanted my attention. I started on the Feather and Fan Comfort shawl in the merino and mohair blend I "fixed" a few weeks back. (I have a giftee in mind.) Good thing it's an easy pattern, because I had to watch the show, knit, and pet this-

I thought you might be some place sitting pretty in front of PR last night when I saw a preview for it here.

Your combo of merino and mohair reminded me that I have some silvery merino under the bed that would give Joe some body. Can't wait to see what your feather and fan looks like!

Your dog is so cute! I always seem to have a lap full of feline furry goodness every time I knit.

Awww! What a cutie! BTW, I'm working on the same shawl in Eiswein Mr. Joe. I'm so glad I got sucked into that vortex.

How in the world could anyone resist that face?

Bets, I love Project Runway too.I record it so I do not miss a thing. You should hear my husband sreaming out of the room when I turn it on!But I love the fashion and I like to see the design process. Wonder who will win? They are all four strong designers.Your dog is adorable.

i have a really, truly shameful confession to make. somehow - and i have no idea how - i completely missed project runway this week. WTF?!?! i didn't even realize it until i saw your blog! i think after being excited last week and then it being a rerun, i got off my schedule. and my mind was probably clouded with teaching/school stuff...

anyway, i am shocked with myself! you have a very cute puppy!

i will definitely be there this week :) if not, my PR fan license should be revoked!

bets, my mother sent me to Singer Sewing School the summer I was 12. I'll never forget my first project in that class, a pink dotted swiss empire waist, sleeveless sheath trimmed with deep fuscia wide grosgrain ribbon. I still sew on my high school sewing machine. Also, LOVE PR & am rooting for Laura.
