We spent Super Bowl Sunday, as has been the case for three out of the last four years, hanging with a couple hundred knitters/weavers/crocheters/spinners at Webs for their pre-game bash.

Such a fun and festive time, meeting old friends and new (in clusters like this throughout the store, down every aisle, in every nook and cranny!), enjoying the snacks, petting the pretty yarns, and working on our projects. Jesse came along because, even though he probably wouldn't admit it, he has a darn good time at these events too. My budding weaver found the loom room fascinating and had a good time chatting about yo-yos and fiber arts among the other folks enjoying the snacks. Lots of people liked his Deathflake mittens and he did proclaim it quite convenient to have a sister who knits such great stuff for him.

Leah has reached the armholes on her cabled sweater and is thrilled to be zipping along on those shorter rows. She expects to finish one front panel today and there's a bunch of snow in the forecast tomorrow, so she's setting aside a couple of Netflix DVDs and doing a happy Snoopy dance about the possibility of finishing the second front panel tomorrow.

Leslie Wind's cable needle necklace is included in this pic because it's been put to use on every single set of crossed stitches you see here and has become one of Leah's favorite and most important knitting accessories. She's also loving those Knitpicks Harmony interchangeable needles -- so pretty and so pointy for easier cabling!

She's been working pretty hard on this sweater and says that, when it's done, she's going to take a good long break from knitting. I'm curious to see how long that lasts. :-)


I Spy 2 movie was Fahrenheit 451. I thought that would be an easy one (figuring everybody but me had already seen that movie), but nobody guessed it!

HA HA I wasn't even close!

That is a Cable sweater (with a capital C) and now I'm worried that I did not spell capital correctly and you're going to notice...

Leah is an amazing knitter. I can't wait to hear what she does with her creative energy in her knitting break. Spin? Weave? Learn something entirely new?

Has she ever been interested in drawing or painting?
