Knitting & Football - A Winning Combination

Is it really Friday already?  Although, I will admit, back on Tuesday it sure felt like it should have been Friday!  After that, the rest of the week seemed to scurry on quickly.  I wish I could say I got a lot of knitting time in, but I did not

Last Saturday I worked on a very mindless knit hat while watching the world junior hockey games on TV...

When I got bored working rounds of chunky rib, I picked up  - and finished! - this Petal Dishcloth.  The yarn is Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in the pinky stripes colorway for breast cancer.  I came across it by accident while ordering a paper trimmer on Kmart.com and needing to use up a gift card balance.  Sure, I figured I would just added a skein or two of cotton and easily hit the balance... 20 minutes later I had added 6 or 7 skeins.

I do plan to get in some quality knitting time this weekend, as I really need to finish up the twin baby boy hat #2 for Monday!  Therefore, Sunday has been reserved for playoff football and knitting!  Let's Go Pats!

Lola Update: So far, so good with the prednisone.  She is showing the typical symptoms, but none of the bad ones... which is a good thing.  And, yes, the lumps are clearly shrinking!  Woot, Woot!  I'm not sure she's the happiest she could be (would you be if you had to pee all the time and were constantly hungry?), but she's getting lots of extra treats and loving!

Hope you have a great weekend.

Poor baby but at least it is working, The downside I suppose is similar to humans but what can you do? Onwards and Upwards. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Really like your petal dishcloth. Really unusual design.

I really like you, but not your football team! Well, I don't dislike them, but they keep playing and beating my teams. My first love is the Broncos but my secondary team is the Texans. We in Houston are very excited for Sunday! (My heart truly is with the Broncos and I think they can beat Baltimore tomorrow!) Go Texans!

Our winter snow/sleet storm is just starting. Seems like a good time to find some needles and yarn and settle in for the weekend.

Ha! If it's a good game, I think I'd have a hard time knitting. I tend to spin when we are watching a movie.
