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.

Wow.

Still can't believe how dumb I am sometimes...

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?

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