Knit a little, read a little, watch a little

The best laid plans of mice and men...

I mean to post and then I don't. And when I get around to it? A meme and a recently finished object. (Actual Knitting Content.) I saw this TV meme at sprite's and was curious to see how I'd do (bold for series watched in entirety, italics for shows where you've seen episodes):

50. Quantum Leap
49. Prison Break
48. Veronica Mars
47. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
46. Sex & The City

45. Farscape
44. Cracker
43. Star Trek
42. Only Fools and Horses
41. Band of Brothers

40. Life on Mars (but I'm working on it)
39. Monty Python’s Flying Circus
38. Curb Your Enthusiasm
37. Star Trek: The Next Generation
36. Father Ted

35. Alias
34. Frasier
33. CSI: Las Vegas
32. Babylon 5
31. Deadwood

30. Dexter
29. ER
28. Fawlty Towers

18. Arrested Development
17. South Park
16. Doctor Who

15. Heroes
14. Firefly
13. Battlestar Galactica
12. Family Guy
11. Seinfeld

10. Spaced
09. The X-Files
08. The Wire
07. Friends
06. 24

05. Lost
04. The West Wing
03. The Sopranos
02. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
01. The Simpsons

Results? Fourteen shows watched in their entirety and 23 that I've watched at least an episode of (most are more - only Band of Brothers and The Sopranos are that low - I hated The Sopranos and tend not to watch war stuff.) (A) I watch a lot of TV (a lot of what I watch isn't on the list) and (B) there's a lot of good TV not on this list. Although I am glad CSI: Miami didn't make the list - I do not get why it is the most-watched show in the world. Scary, huh?

As for knitting, meet Palmer:


The pattern is Otto by Ysolda Teague, and well worth the $6 I paid for it. (Although my lack of embroidery skills has left him with a funny looking nose, poor thing.)

He joins Sophie and Elijah (who I really want to rename, but nothing's fitting yet):

So much cute.
