Super Bowl Show and Tell

I don't get thrilled about the Super Bowl except for three things:
1) food (suprise, suprise)
2) commercials
3) half time show

(and I don't think I'm alone with this list, am I right? anyone?)

Paul and I got some wings and things and enjoyed our Super Bowl fare. I liked a couple of the commercials but overall was not thrilled. Loved the car commercial with the little kid dressed as Darth Vader. I also enjoyed the half time show - I like the Black Eyed Peas and thought they did a great job. The game I could have done without (I guess that's when a DVR would come in handy - just skip over all that nonsense.) so of course.....

During the Super Bowl, I finished my Wonderful Wallaby!
...But I can't figure out how the picture got this way, or how to turn it around. Made with Ella Rae Superwash and I can't believe how soft it got after blocking!
Also finished my Feather and Fan scarf, for the upcoming class March 4):
Made with Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo, a nice Dk weight yarn.
Also, started working on another car seat blanket for someone....
CUSTOMER SHOW AND TELL:
Here is Jan's cowl (for the life of me I can't remember what it's called but will find out --edited to add that Jan's cowl is the Willow Cowl from Ravelry -- click there!), made with Ella Rae Lace Merino. Here it is layed out flat:
And here is what it will look like when you wear it:
Pretty cool!
Rose's collection of scarves, two multi-directional scarves and one gathered scarf:
Sue A's socks made with Zauerball Crazy (which is a newly arrived yarn to the shop!)
Trudi's tam, made for the upcoming class (March 19 & 26):


Robin's newsboy hat, made with Ella Rae Sand Art:
