Everyone has such lovely projects!
I am supposed to be knitting a dishtowel for my mom for Christmas, one of the Purl Soho slip-stitch dishtowels - this one is the three-and-one tweed. It is nicely mindless for TV knitting, although I've had to drop down about 30+ rows to fix a few errors (and I've just caught another one, argh). It's KnitPicks CotLin, which is great for the intended purpose but not especially great to knit with, even for someone like me who likes to knit with cotton and linen.
(I say "supposed to be" because after a few days of knitting an entirely inelastic rectangle...I frogged a languishing project and cast on Carrie Bostick Hoge's Sibella cardigan. Ignoring all my other languishing projects. Oops.)
