A 100% football-free Superbowl.

One of the many rewards of blog readership: You guys get the first scoop on the big events! I'm going to send out an eblast in the next day or so, but you heard it here first:

Loops is having a Superbowl party!!!

Not to plagiarize Vickie Howell, but here is the Knitty Gritty:
THIS Sunday, February 3rd, 12noon - 10pm
Loops provides free beverages, you bring a snack to share (optional of course)
• All SUPERwash wools 10% off
• Selected yarns 25% off
• Restocked clearance section 50% off
• Here is the big one: Reach the touchdown on a WIP (any work in progress), let us take a picture of your finished object, and get $10 off any $50 purchase OR $20 off any $100 purchase (purchase must be made the day of the event). Yes, you can cheat and bring in a recently finished object - but it is so much more fun to finish something the day of the game!

So ya'll come - this is our first time to be open on Superbowl Sunday, and if it goes well, we'll make it an annual party!

Now, since a post without a photo is a boring post, here is a shot of Gina's long-dormant but recently finished Scribble scarf. She used Alchemy Haiku and some Prism ribbon from her stash (Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon works great for the ribbon, and Rowan Kidsilk Haze, Kidsilk Night or Kidsilk Spray is a good substitute for the Haiku):

And one more tidbit: The fabulous Jeff the Webman has added our TV story to the Loops homepage - see it up on the top, next to Brent's cute little Magic Lamp?

One time, there was this girl who used to say "no punt intended" and she meant it, and it just always cracked me up. So, that's my Superbowl story for the day.

Sometime I'll have to find a good segue for the fact that she also declared some statements to be "mute points". Seriously. And she doesn't knit, either. -e
