Quick comments

Two things. First, what do you think this is?


Why, it’s an egg-cosy, of course! Mark likes his soft-boiled eggs, but needed some way to keep the second egg warm while he ate the first. So I used a mini-hat pattern, the same one I used for many of the Christmas ornaments I made this year, to make him an egg-cosy. It amuses me, and Mark says it works very well — so we’re both happy!

Second, the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Ottawa Senators soundly tonight, ensuring home-ice advantage for the playoffs and leaving open the possibility of winning their division. It’s been a great season, and I’m really looking forward to the playoffs. Especially since we might even have time to watch the games with friends this year! It’s very exciting.

So even though my real knitting projects are proceeding slowly, I’m in a good mood tonight. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Cute! Looks like a good, quick project - I like the ornaments especially!

“The Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Ottawa Senators soundly tonight.”

Rolls nicely off the tongue, doesn’t it?

I think “trounced” is a more apt description of what our Boys in Blue did on Saturday night ;) heh. The egg cosy looks great, btw! Have you seen the Weekend Knitting book? There’s a pattern in there for egg cosies shaped like mini sweaters. very cute. I wish I knew someone who liked soft-boiled eggs so I could make one or two of them!

Very cute cosy! But it seems to be missing something… maybe a pompom? Or a duplicate-stitch face? Or a Leafs logo!

Ingenious! Did you invent this? What about the name, “cosy”?
