Where did the weekend go?  Seems like Friday was just here a little bit ago…

I tried photographing the dyed yarn from Saturday this morning and it looked terrible.  Will have to do some experimenting in the next little while and see if I can’t get better photos.  In the meantime, well, you’ll have to imagine it :).

I spent most of my non-dyeing time working on the Gather Ye Rosebuds edging, and have now gotten 50.5 edging points done (out of 124), for completion of something like 19.6% of the total shawl.  I’m back close to my original schedule, so as long as I do some knitting every day I’ll get there in the end.  I reached a point last night, though, where I just plain had to lay the needles down and declare my knitting done for the weekend.  Also no photo of GYR, it rained all day yesterday and photographing dark yarn in my house isn’t going to get you anything but a dark-colored blob.

I find it difficult if not impossible to single-task, and generally knit while listening to DVDs of some sort (can’t exactly knit lace while watching a DVD!), and lately I’ve been on a West Wing kick.  I’m currently halfway through Season 6, and it’s become a slog.  I think for me, it really started to go downhill in Season 4, and the second half of Season 6 and all of Season 7 are downers.  I’m not sure if it’s because the stories seem to become more soap opera and less a lesson in constitutional, two-party, separation-of-powers governance, or what, but I’m tempted to set WW aside and watch something else.  Maybe I’ll go back and watch ER again, it’s been a while since my last ER marathon.

Any suggestions for good shows available on DVD?
