    Packers Fans

    My wonderful Wisconsin husband is a Packers fan.

    I tolerate football only to the degree that I acknowledge my husband will disappear on front of the TV for a few hours on Sunday and Monday and occasionally send our dogs into barking fits over his whoops and hollers.

    I somehow found myself conned into making him a Green Bay blanket. I actually started on it last year, but I was crocheting it. I got so sick and tired of green and yellow yarn, and the end finally came when I made two pieces of it with the wrong hook, screwing up the dimensions. I buried the project until my husband started fondling the fuzzy, warm fleece at the local craft store.

    So fleece it is. Making a giant 22" perfect oval letter G is a pain in the butt. I didn't want to tile out a giant template on my printer, so I did it the long way, measuring a smaller logo and doing the math to make a big one. I vaguely remember some skills from my high school drafting class. So far I've got the big white G down and hand-stitched it onto the green background, and cut out the green oval to finish the emblem. Maybe I'll machine sew the rest of the blanket. I suck at machine sewing; I'm like a drunk driver with a bobbin and needle.

    Just let me take a try at doing that job... then you'll feel like a super star! "A man has got to know his limitations". This guy knows that his limits begin with needles. Sounds like you're doing a good job though! Hang in there... sure he's going to like it.

    The scale of the logo looks great!

    My wife took the easy way out - she bought me a Packers fleece blanket.

    That blanket would be much better if it were black and orange in a tiger stripe pattern.

    You must be a nice wife to make your husband something like that though. My wife would laugh at me and tell me to turn up the heat if I were cold watching football.
