This week I took Thursday and Friday off. One reason was to sew and the other was to watch the Cowboys lose. I am not a huge football fan but The Husband is and since it is the shortest season of any sport, it requires the least commitment and I watch it with him. I do have a Fantasy Football team called Smitten With Witten for Cowboy Jason Witten (see above). If I’m watching anyway…
Along those lines, Audi @ Fashion For Nerds wrote a great post on her argument for why hockey is a better sport to watch than football. (Anyone else find it strange that the Canadian is arguing for American football and the American for hockey?) I would argue that the playoffs in football are one game, not best of seven like hockey. (Seven-really?!) Also I love football movies. Brian’s Song, Friday Night Lights, The Express. Football is a great metaphor for life. You carry your stuff in life through various obstacles to reach your goals. Sometimes you score a touchdown, sometimes you settle for a field goal and sometimes you get stopped in your tracks. But through it all, hopefully, you are surrounded by supportive teammates.
But enough about football.
I didn’t get much sewing done. Actually all I did was press my fabric for my Vogue 1199 skirt and laid out the pattern pieces on top. I didn’t even get around to cutting out the pieces. I was just too sick. So I napped…a lot.
To make up for the lack of sewing photos I have included a shot of my progress with my knitting. I am knitting a cowl neck to wear with my Lady Grey coat (or really any coat). Progress is slow. To make it interesting I took the pic on my friend’s piano where we are housesitting.
