And We Have a Winner...

Congratulations to mamma for winning the latest movie line contest. She correctly guessed that the line "She'd eat if we were having Tony-loaf" was uttered by Dash in The Incredibles. Props and chocolate to you, mamma!

Now on to the next contest:

He says: "That baby's crying"
She says: "And?"

The Count and I quote this dialogue quite often (in jest).

Chocolate awaits the first correct entry.

In knitting news, I've been working on the felted clog pattern from Fiber Trends. I'm doing a pair for myself first to see if they are possibly "gift-worthy". They do work up pretty fast, which is a definite plus. Here is a picture of my progress on the first slipper. It looks so funny and misshapen because it hasn't been shrunk yet. Believe it or not, it will eventually fit my foot!
I've also ventured out of my usual color comfort zone and knit these up in rich tans and browns. I'm liking the colors. I'm using Nashua Creative Focus, which is 75% Wool and 25% Alpaca. I've felted before with Babajoes Wool and Lamb's Pride, and both did well. I will let you know how this yarn felts.

One thing about knitting slippers or mittens is you have to knit two. So you get all glad that you've finished something, and then realize that you have to knit another one!

I shipped the baby blanket to Trophy Wife just in time for her trip to Minneapolis. Do let me know how that is received, won't you?

Fridays are great days for me because ZimDee doesn't have school, so I don't have to be anywhere by a certain time. That's a nice way to end the week.

Hey, are any of you watching Dancing With the Stars? I'm loving it this season. Drew and Stacy are doing well, it's true, but my two favorites couples in this order are Jonathan and Giselle and Tia and Maksim. For the first time since watching, I called in to vote last night. Maybe because I usually watch it the next day and the voting is closed by then. Anyhoo, it's a long shot for my favorites to win, but I'm pulling for them anyway. For those of you who watch, who are your favorites?

My love to all.
