I think Mack will be getting two pairs of mittens for Christmas — the Morehouse Farms Shark Mitts and some PIGGIES!! The sharks are knit, they just need teeth and sewing up. I have plenty of worsted to make some colorful piggies — or maybe all one color, or maybe with contrasting ears and tail. I’m envisioning a shark on one hand, piggy on the other, and some interesting, creative play. ; )
I gave the Noro/Cascade scarf a good soak and pinned it out last night, along with a couple of swatches I did with Oblique in mind. I rarely swatch, and washing and blocking is even more rare — well, truthfully, they’re not even swatches, more like swatchettes. I forgot to measure them before I washed, so you see I’m not accustomed… or methodical.
I was pooped last night, so after the swatching and pinning, I didn’t do a darn thing. I thought about it, had yarn in my lap, looked at it and petted it for quite a while — that was enough.
Thank goodness I live in a "local market" and will see tonight’s football game on a local broadcast — two-thirds of the state (including the majority of my siblings) and almost all of Texas will not see tonight’s match-up between the Packers and the Cowboys. Dallas QB Tony Romo’s idol was Brett Favre when he played high school ball in Burlington, just a little SW of Milwaukee — just to make it a little more interesting.
Y’all know that I’ve raised three girls who knit… I’m pleased as punch that one of ’em is also a through-and-through Packer fan. In fact, she’s driving up from Madison after class today so she can watch the game with me tonight. Hahaha. I am so proud.
