Knitting and Dr. Who don't mix?

So I cast on (using the very nice twisted German cast-on) for the Sixth Sense socks last night and knit a bit, but it's seeming really tight when I try to pull it on my ankle. Could this be the result of knitting while watching a particularly tense episode of the new Doctor Who?


But perhaps no. I'm making gauge, I checked this morning. So maybe it'll fit okay once I get a few more inches on it. OR maybe it won't be socks for my mom, maybe it'll be socks for my friend Pat or someone else with slender ankles...

I must say that I think this simple pattern works very well for yarn as variegated as this Lorna's Laces Watercolor. It's also nicely rhythmic, great for television knitting.

Thanks for stopping by, beautiful yarn and socks, the cascading leaves are very nice, I'm too starting on the 6th sense socks tonight.
I have some LL that will work for that pattern, thanks for recommending it.

I LOVE the new Dr. Who. I've been watching since Tom Baker - way back in the day.
