I am the best wife ever

Why? Because of this my friends.
Johnny Utah
I'm an FBI agent. So cool.

Oh yes, that would be an Ohio State #9 Johnny Utah football jersey. Hubster has a strange, inexplicable love of the movie "Point Break" and mentioned once that he would kill for a Johnny Utah jersey.
But you can't buy one anywhere, not even on eBay because what kind of dork would actually want one. So, I found an OSU #9 jersey and used iron-on transfer sheets (thankfully applied without melting the jersey itself!) to add the "Utah" on the back. He wore it ALL DAY yesterday.

That and the Shedir I made for him!
Shedir 2a
Okay pouty-face, you can have one, too.

Knitted with the exact same mods as last time but all in one color
(and finished on Christmas Eve, just under the wire!). When I made him try on the Brodir eighty billion times to check the fit, he kept remarking how comfortable it was. And did the oh-so-subtle pouty face when I said it was for my brother. So of course, I had to make one for him!

Put it on right after tearing open the package unwrapping it, wore it 'til he went to bed, and put it on first thing this morning. Me thinks he likes it. ;)

Shedir 2

Pattern: Shedir from knitty, Fall '04
Yarn: Rowan Calmer, 1 ball Khaki
Needle: Addi Turbo, Size 3, 40" but all in one color
Mods: Same as the Brodir (sans the contrast ribbing)

Lovely Shedir! Mr. Batty also has a love of Point Break -- I got him the DVD for a birthday. What is it with guys and Point Break?

Anyway, yes, you rock!

If you can get a man to wear a hat all day, I think you must have some kind of superhuman powers.

That's funny. I love Johnny Utah, even if he talks in a monotone voice all the time.
