Eli Manning ROCKS!!! Yes, the little Manning that could chugged his way to victory in today's Super Bowl. It was a major defensive match and an even bigger upset victory. I'm a huge fan of the Manning family so I couldn't be more pleased that both Peyton and Eli now have Super Bowl rings and MVP trophys. Awesome!
And as if that wasn't enough, I had my own super accomplishment of the day by casting off the last stitch on the Mystic Waters Shawl. It's one honking big shawl! It also beautiful. I didn't have the courage to get in the floor to block it tonight so final pictures and measurements will have to wait. It did weigh in at 172g making this the heaviest shawl I've ever knit.
I suppose I should include one little errata while I'm at it. Never trust the media when it comes to silly details about holidays. I managed to hear two different verdicts attributed to yesterday's Groundhog predictions. Apparently the poor critter did not see his shadow after all and Spring is supposedly right around the corner. I hope that prediction is correct, but then here in Tennessee winter isn't that big a deal anyway. I was reminded of that this weekend watching all the TV footage of Pres. Hinckley's funeral in Salt Lake City. There was plenty of new snow covering everything and it was clearly cold at the graveside service at City Cemetery. I do not miss those Utah winters one bit. We had a mild weekend here and my spring bulbs are shooting up slowly. Watch out groundhog....the daffodils are coming!
