Why I shouldn't knit during a Patriots game

This isn't the way I should be starting a baby blanket.

I worked on the border during the first half of yesterday's game between the Patriots and the Colts. Okay, if you want to be precise, I started it while watching the Bears-Saints game and Parasite, a really awful movie (in the loosest sense imaginable) from 1982. The point is, the border went smoothly.

I started the body during the second half of the game. I got a the game. Me, a football non-watcher. It was disgraceful.

This is what the body should look like. Obviously I was able to manage in one section of the blanket.

I'm not sure what happened to the other section, but it seems to be a metaphor for what happened in the game, to the Pats anyway. Eek!

I am so impressed with all the baby blankets you knit! I can't even finish a scarf in a reasonable amount of time!

Is that the pink Simply Soft you bought when we went to Michael's? And a pattern from the book you got, I assume. Sorry to hear about the mistakes -- I hope you weren't rooting too hard for the Patriots, because otherwise it was double frustration!
