Superbowl Sunday!

Are you ready for the big game?

Each year I watch the Superbowl. I can't say I am an avid fan of American football, but I do love this event - the excitement of the build up, the shows, the camaraderie, parties, and of course this marketing gal loves the commercials. This year has been especially interesting to watch the support for the local team who have made it to the big game, and a young daughter getting indoctrinated at school, with 'United in Orange' days and other festive events. The indoctrination has worked - I have received her request that we go to a local party store so that we can decorations for the game! :)

I will also be working on a newly cast-on knitting project during the game - this is Clapo-Ktus. It is a wonderful combination of 2 popular patterns: Clapotis and Baktus.


I have a Clapotis that I knit many moons ago and it may be one of my most loved finished knits (and looking at the date on Flickr, my Clapotis is almost 10 years old!).  This modification of the original seemed like a fun addition to my wardrobe. It is also perfect plane knitting, and later this afternoon, game knitting!

Noro Silk Garden Clapotis

The yarn that I am using is Skein Top Drawer Sock. Not only is colorway divine, but the yarn is ridiculously soft. It is a joy to work with.


Wishing you a great day ahead, and 'Go Broncos!' Sam XXX

I am reaching on this but I recall when Naomi was very young you made her the cutest sundresses. I would love to track these down for a new grandma friend. Any idea where patterns might be?
