a little bit of function...


My finished Bainbridge - for my mom. The picture is kind of crappy, my coat a little linty, it is below zero out there so no time for posing *heehee* bear with me... Good thing this scarf pattern provides a tutorial on how to tie it properly - it was a little interesting to get it to lay just how I like, finally the scarf won. I think the yarn fabric I have knit up is a bit too drapey for this project, but it so cozy in Sheep Shop - I think I would just double up next time. A Malabrigo on a bigger needle would produce a more rugged fabric and it would probably stand up a little nicer - but my mom ordered up teal and here it is. There are many examples over at Ravelry - I am so impressed with the different stitch patterns people chose - particularly this cabled one - I think this is definitely a keeper project - quick and dirty.


If everyone who reads this could just say a little prayer around oh, 5:30 central time tomorrow for the Green Bay Packers - Brett Favre really deserves a trip to the big show....Wisconsinites are kinda serious about their football. At least as serious as we are about leading a Jessica Simpson fan drive - sorry Tony.

I will be watching, and praying. I think he deserves a trip to the big game also.

I'm sending positive vibes in Brett's direction! We'll be watching here in Chicago. My husband's autographed Brett Favre football holds a display place of honor in the living room.

Cute scarf! I've never seen any Sheep Shop yarn -- I'll have to be on the lookout for it.

Oh, I love the bainbridge! The color is fab! Sorry about your truck - I hate driving in winter weather! Just a little snow here now, but colder weather is on the way!

Brett's pretty easy on the eyes too. I'm actually a Patriots fan, however, I root for the Packers when they're playing. And if it comes down to the Patriots vs. the Packers, either winning would be OK by me!!

Nice bainbridge! I'd say if softness trumps structure, go with softness :) It'll still keep the cold off!

AWWW. I watched, and prayed and they still lost. At least the younger Manning will have another chance to beat the Patriots.

The scarf looks great and so dose the photo!

Sorry the Packers lost - I'm not that into football but my husband had it on. I thought they were going to win. What a close game!
