I ‘m not superstition and it is a good thing too! The NY Giants were playing the Green Bay Packers today. I am originally from NY and was raised by a father who is a fanatical NY Giant fan. My friends still have season tickets and only forgive me for also routing for the Chicago Bears because there was no NFL game day ticket when I lived there. When faced with Bears football or nothing what is a girl to do?
Bella knitting has a line of projects for sports fans. I have been working on a hat in NY Giants colors but since I finished it I started on a sweater for babies and kids. It seems that sports fans are as fanatic about their teams as we are about our knitting (and for some of us it’s both) so what a great combination.
I needed good colors and a recognizable logo for the project I had in mind and so with complete lack for foresight I started my Green Bay Packer's sweater earlier this week. I laughed at stories of how the Green Bay fans were covering up street signs with New York links. Rolled my eyes when I heard they had stopped playing Seinfeld since it was based in NYC. Oh, pleeeease, I am so not superstitious.
And so we proved today that knitting can not jinx a football game 2,000 miles away in sub-zero temperatures! But I will still make sure I am not knitting any new England Patriots stuff on February 3rd!!
I'm getting this ready for Stitches. I'll let you know more about it as soon as I read though all my chicken scratch design notes. If you have eagle eyes you might notice that 3-needle i-cord join I was playing with along the raglan sleeve!
