The Morning After

The Scoreboard KAL goes like this –

Blue = Seahawks

Green = Opponents

Gray = Space between Games

Each point = One round

Do you think, just maybe, the Legion of Boom can’t bang in the fourth quarter??? Hey, Pete Carroll! Check this out!!


State of the Knitting Address

With six projects on the needles this week (and problems, questions and/or angst about all of them!), I feel the need to “take stock.” Hence, the state of the knitting:

My one almost finished project:

With the right mitt complete and the left one blocking (with just the side seam remaining), I’m calling these Huckleberry Knits Seahawks Mitts DONE!

Longest uncompleted project:

This is actually 6 projects that are technically off the needles, but all need a duplicate stitch detail. These are the Surprise projects on my Ravelry page. Lots of angst with the duplicate stitch design!

Biggest Project:

Susan dress for granddaughter Finn. It’s designed with four panels plus sleeves. You can read about all the problems on my last two posts! I’m on the second back panel!

Most puzzling project:

Love the pattern. Love the yarn. Beyond the Pines Shawl is a winner. But I’ll be checking in with my yarn group to be sure I’m accurate with this complicated pattern. 

My all time favorite sock:

The Gladys pattern is awesome and the Baah yarn is perfect for this project! Had a problem with the start of the heel, but the designer responded quickly to my email and I’m back on track — after I finish tinking 6 rows!!

And last, but not least:

The Scoreboard KAL with KnitPurl Hunter and Skacel – great combination. The angst here is the Seahawks’ offensive line!! Hoping I’ll be knitting a lot of BLUE today. Go, Hawks!

Monday Scoreboard (KAL)

In the Scoreboard KAL with Knit Purl Hunter and sponsored by Skacel, a knitter knits one round per point using the scores of a favorite team’s score to make a cowl. I’m knitting a Seahawks Cowl, so I knit with blue when the Seahawks score and with green when their opponent scores. I used 4 rows of gray to start the season and 2 rows of gray between games. Here’s the score pattern for yesterday’s loss to St. Louis 34 – 31 (that’s 65 rounds of knitting!):

I’m hoping next weeks’ game with Green Bay is a defensive dual with the Seahawks winning 7 – 3. Watch for next Monday’s post!
