As much as I don't understand football I definitely found that to be an amazing game! AND I found a solution to my earlier freak out, I needed to knit something quick so I could feel the satisfaction of a FO. So I made a hat today!
I based it off of Le Slouch but I made some modifications so that I could use the butterfly stitch and have it be a little bigger around since I had heard Le Slouch ran a little small. I really love it. And the boys were mighty impressed when at the end of the game I had completed a hat! I'm apparently productive!
I feel much better now and can get back to my stockings....Sigh
