This little piggy...

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.

I grew up not terribly far from where you currently live and am a born and bred Packer fan. I now have a 5-year old son. One day we were playing something similar to Mad Libs and I asked him for the name of a celebrity. He asked what a celebrity was and I told him it was a famous person, maybe an actor or athlete. So he very matter-of-factly named "Brett Favre". He's a boy after my own heart!

So what IS up with that? Do we not get to see the game here either? And how come? Where can I complain? How fast can I get to your house if I leave now?

OK, I read it as, "I pooped last night." I had to go back and thank goodness I did. Not that there's anything wrong with that. After all, everybody poops.

I can't wait to see the Shark Mittens!

GO PACK!

(I have to go to my daughter's jazz funk dance class --it's parents' week for us to watch, and she wants us there, so I feel obliged; but I bet the parental turnout is thin!)

Those Piggy mittens are sooooo cute!!

Three girls that knit!? Where did I go wrong?

Those mittens are adorable! I can just imagine what will happen between the shark and piggy. LOL

I can't believe the Packers game is on some pay channel! What a numbskull decision somebody made.

Enjoy the game and Go Packers!

You have much to be proud of! Certainly is the season for being pooped too. I missed the very end of the game last night!
