Anyone else find themselves doing strange things when they don't concentrate on their knitting? I like to knit while I watch Knitting Daily and I have found myself obediently doing a K2tog YO when Eunie instructs you to and I'm supposed to be doing a straight garter stitch. Or, recently in the car I was working on a seed stitch sweater and not paying attention I got off a stitch and did 2 rows incorrectly. I knit wrong all the way to the office and carefully frogged all the way home. You'd think I'd learn my lesson and concentrate a little better, but noooooooo.

ah minh, then I have you beat. I messed up the stockinette part of a sock yesterday, while talking to a friend about her twisted sts in her clapotis. I knit k1p1 instead. *sigh.

Definitely not a good idea to be knitting while watching a mystery. I either make mistakes in my knitting (the reverse of yours, I start doing garter stitch instead of a rib) or I miss some important part of the crime (usually the big "aha" moment for the detective). The only thing that I wouldn't mess up is the stockinette part of a sock :)

Hilarious Grand-Moogie -- I don't think I would have ever thought of that!

OK Donna, Just do not ever get a job providing telephone sex while you are trying to write lessons.

Boy, can I relate to this one! I think my brain defaults to K2P2 ribbing anytime I'm using a stitch pattern with a 4-stitch repeat; I've discovered there are some things I really must not knit while watching TV because of that.

It's a bit like trying to write/type something (i.e., a lesson assignment) while chatting with someone on the phone about another subject ... I'll find words from my conversation sneaking into what I'm writing!
