I have lots of the yarn left over and I'm thinking it would be cute knitted up and felted into mug cozies and coasters for office gifts next Christmas. Of course, when the time comes to actually think about next year's presents, I'll have forgotten my brilliant idea, used the yarn for something else or lost it in the stash bins, misplaced the patterns, and by the time I remember, find the yarn and the pattern, I will run out of time to actually do the knitting anyway. ;)
ToolMan and I spent the entire day inside today. Although neither of us cared one whit about the Super Bowl, other than the commercials, we had the pre-game and game on all afternoon. I plied yarn, finished the Yang Mao bag, started a new project with "Bouncy", and did laundry. ToolMan putzed in his garage and made a wonderful dinner.
A slow-roasted hunk of beef, tender enough to cut with your fork, with carrots and onions roasted in the pan, scallopped cabbage (or "scabbage" as my family calls it), and biscuits. By time for dinner, the house smelled wonderful! How lucky I am to have a husband who loves to cook!
