In case you missed it, I’m working on my own personal Superbowl Challenge. After the Giants beat the Packers to get to the Superbowl two weeks ago, I thought it would be fun (?!) to make new hats for me and the family by kickoff tomorrow. Three of the four hats are done but for some finishing touches, and the fourth hat…well, it’s not done. I was almost finished yesterday, except that it looked like arse.
To be the hat I envisioned I would have needed to knit at a much smaller gauge and there’s just not time for such a drastic change of plans. Above, yesterday morning. Below, just a moment ago.
I really, really wanted to be finished yesterday because I’m getting tired of this whole crazy thing. But after taking a break from Gerald’s hat, standing back from it for a while, I decided that I needed to rip back and fix it.
I know I’ll finish and I’ll be happy about the whole project after a while, but I’m just bored out of my mind with red, white and blue right now. On top of that, I’m getting nervous about the game. I really want the Giants to win. Really, really want them to win. It’s not very often your team gets to the Superbowl (unless you’re a Patriots fan — booo….or a Bills fan from the 90’s).
Although I sound all bored and boring, I really have no right to be:
I got an award! Thank you to Peggy and Crystal who say I make their day. Funny because they make my day! I’m so happy. And I get to hand out awards to others who make my day. Sweet. Well, there’s Lisa and Anne, my local buddies who keep me company on Thursday nights and keep me laughing. And Jen, who I’m so glad to have as a friend. Katie, Areli, Adrian, Nova, Tasha; their blogs inspire me, make me giggle, make me want to put gruyere in my pie crust and usually make me want to cast on right away for whatever they’re knitting. So thanks.
I guess if I’m going to prove that I completed my challenge, I’ll have to have finished photos before game time tomorrow (which happens to be around 6:19pm EST). Maybe we’ll even be able to get a group shot. But first, I have to actually finish knitting the darn things….
