Football and Knitting

Pink Petal Cardigan

Pink Petal Cardigan

Are you ready for some football?

Line up the Unfinished Knitting Projects from the Stash, knitting needles, and a coffee – turn on ESPN and the playoffs and…

I…it is time to knit!

Football and knitting! A great Destashification Weekend!

Sitting and knitting for more than 8 hours a day would normally earn the wrath of a few  – but turn on NFL Prime Time or a game and just tell everyone you are watching the game – and all is good!

The Pink Petal Cardigan is another sweater, also top-down knit, that was completed during a football game! Two other Destashification Sweaters were completed earlier this month.

The yarn was in The Stash, Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere in a Ballet Pink.  Cotton Cashmere is very soft.

Love the Lace Yoke in this pattern!  So pretty!

The Stash holds a few other yarns that I may knit up in this pattern.

Once the yoke is completed, there is just stockinette stitch – perfect for football game knitting!
