Gosh I am so dumb...
So, I knit a guage swatch, and pinned it to a pillow so I could count.

Then, I completely forgot about it.

I came home today, made my bed, and found...

My poor rumpled swatch and pins.

I apparently threw the pillow on the bed yesterday, having forgotten the guage swatch was there, and the swatch came unpinned, I didn't notice it, I slept on it last night and then I found it when I lifted up my pillow (my regular pillow, not the one I pinned the swatch to) this afternoon. I cannot believe I didn't stab myself and I really hope I got all the pins out of my bed.


Still can't believe how dumb I am sometimes...
Nothing is worth doing that isn't worth doing badly.

That made my eyes open wide.

I have a waterbed.
I just made some sheet sets and was extremely worried about forgetting a pin.

I thought "I'll sleep on it" was just an expression

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
