Moose, Meese? Whichever Spells Trouble!

Question: If the plural of "goose" is "geese," why isn't the plural of "moose," "meese?" "Why?" is what I asked myself in the middle of this project, holiday vests for Sophia and David. I'd seen this cute moose on a sweater made by a choir friend. Well, this little devil fought me the whole way...twice! I did lots of frogging, finally finished both of them and sent them off. "Why?" is what I asked myself once again when I learned that David couldn't get his vest over his head! Maybe I should stick to Poof scarves? Or mittens? Or hats? The Vests
Our son-in-law sent this photo of the vest recipients having fun together. They are coming here for Christmas and bringing the misbehaving moose for me to fix. I hope I can!
Tickle, tickle
Unlike the vests, this scarf is a fast, easy project. I am really beginning to like Cascade yarn as there are so many varieties, some fancy and some very practical. The scarves are made with a ball of Kiddo and 2 balls of Poof. You can see the many choices here, a much too convenient way to shop!

Dear Judy
Sorry, I cannot really answer your question ☺
Your grandchildren will enjoy their your moose.

I do hope you can fix that neckline. They'll be so cute in their matching vests.

Hey Judy! I thought I was the only one to ask questions like that!! Good to know there are other enquiring minds out there contemplating the important things in life, like, the saying "happy as Larry" who was Larry and why was he so happy?!?! Love the meese mooses, though! Reminds me of Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons of childhood. Scarves are about my speed for knitting, so I'm no help fixing the tricky neckline - I'm sure you'll work it out, though, cos Grandmas can do ANYTHING!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Have a great week! Bear Hugs!
