Football Saturday

What's that?
It's moving!  It's on top of my paw! 

Little sweater for a baby!
PATTY:  Pity us because we live close to a university football stadium -- a mile away, which apparently is too close.  Since 7 am we have been "treated" to a preview of the Georgia marching band rehearsing for an 11 am game.  "Check, check, check" on the too-loud sound system.  Lovely.  It's Saturday!!  SATURDAY!  So now you know it:  I hate football! 

BHU:  I think you're making more noise than the band at this point.

PATTY:  Thanks for the snark, Bhu.  Anyhoo, here's a little photo sequence of Bhu's big yarn adventure the other night.  This is a little sweater I decided to make for a PhD student who is newly pregnant.  She's hoping for a girl, but I keep seeing "boy" when I work on this, so . . .  I'm going to bind the neck and sleeve edges with blue, I think.  I was watching the Create channel one day and they were having a Crochet & Knitting programs marathon and I saw them making this stitch that really appealed to me:  cast on 30, single crochet then double crochet and repeat.  I like the texture.

Next week -- the 17th to be exact -- is Bhu's 17th birthday.  Stop by and say hello!  xoxo

We see that it's Bhu's birthday today (October 17) and we just had to come by and wish Uncle Bhu the happiest of birthdays!

We love you Uncle Bhu!

Man, I do TOO! That is gorgeous. I sure wish I knew how to knit. I am going to be a grandma at the end of March to a precious baby boy. xxoo Tell Bhu as well...
