We're big football fans in our house, so this is yet another aspect of this time of year that I enjoy. While Mike watches football, I usually knit by his side. It's a perfect time to start on winter woolens.
I'm making everybody a new hat this year, and right now I'm on mine and Mike's. I'm also going to make Mike some Steelers socks (he's originally from Pittsburgh) using the toe up 2-at-a-time method (if I can ever figure out how to do that, snort). I have more socks and a pair of mittens also in my short term future.
I hate puffy huge winter coats for the babies (too hard with car seats) and each winter Anne receives a handknit wool sweater that subs for a coat. This year, I'm knitting her the Pinwheel Sweater, pattern available for free from elann.com:
So, I'm excited. I've also got lots of fun belly dancing stuff going on Saturday we're going to take the kids to a local festival. Assuming we aren't falling down exhausted from our long nights with Anne, but that's another story entirely.
Have a great weekend everybody!
