Apparently, the Phillies can lose without me messing with their mojo. So I'm going all out today. Here is what's on my car now:

Here is what I'm wearing to work:

Cross yer fingers!

I added the extra 2" of ribbing to Gus's Hoody, so it fits him in a cool way now, but when he tried it on I noticed he was trying to put his hands in the (non-existent) pockets. So I said, hey, I'm going to add some pockets for you! Because I can! I think!

I picked up stitches along the top of the ribbing from the side seam to the front border. Then I started knitting, decreasing on every row just inside the garter stitch border on the outside edge. I wasn't sure if it was going to work or not, but it did. At the end I sorta kinda grafted one stitch from the Hoody to a live stitch from the needle. I'm actually not quite sure what you would call it, but it worked. Here it is with one pocket done:

Please send some Phillies-specific good vibes out to Colorado tonight.

I am confident the Phillies will not lose tonight. Of course, there is an off-day. Unfortunately the bullpen came back to bite them yesterday, so things do not look good. But - hey! - they won the Eastern Division championship!!

Yes, anon, you are right. I said when they won the division that that was good enough for me. And it is. But it would be nice for them to win at least one game.
