and it doesn't
hurt the untroubled spirit either."

I've been working on my Sitcom Chic. I'd show you a picture, but it'd be pretty boring right now, just a few inches of stockinette on 24" circulars. It's quite nice, and the Cotton-Ease is really soft. My first increase row is a little wonky, with little gaps that had me worried. I showed it to Midge (teacher at my LYS), and she said I was doing the M1 right, but I was pulling too much and stretching the yarn a bit. My second increase row looks great.
I also got something yesterday that I've been wanting to get for awhile. A Kacha Kacha row counter. I love the name. At the end of every row I can't help myself, I have to call out "Kacha KaCHA." Hee.
