A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Alma and Me

I'm sitting here watching season two of Deadwood and the widow Garret is working on her knitting. She and I are both working in garter stitch. Mine is the mile-long first side border of my blanket. (I didn't show it to you on purpose, sillies. I've got to save something for the big "all finished" shot.) Alma is awkwardly knitting on a dull garter stitch scarf--like all tv characters--on huge honking needles which, I feel quite certain, did not exist in 1877.
