Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?

Of course you're ready for some football!

1. You've got your handy NFL Meets Cascasde 220 Yarn List

2. You've gone to your local yarn shop to get your teams colors Cascade

3. Your going to knit/crochet...

What! You don't know what to make!

Oh, really, do I have to do all the work for you?


You will always look fashionable, and warm, in the stands with a team colors hat. Check this one from Debbie Stoller's Son of a Stitch 'n Bitch.

Hey, if you thought Favre was still going to be with the Packers and you bought green and gold, fear not! The J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS'! green is the exact same! You lucky dog.

Or you could go halvesies and just make it green, gold and white in honor of ole Brett's past and present teams.

No, no hat for you? Ok, scarf. You can make a scarf. You can do stripes. Rockin' easy and makes a good tailgating project too!

Now, something I am always in awe of at the game, and envious of is the team color afghan. In my heart of crafty hearts I'd love to make one for my dear sweet Ogre in New York Giants colors.

But, really, really? Red, white and blue! Argh!

Why couldn't his team by the Bears! Orange and Navy!

Again, points for team color style Chicago!

So, what will you be knitting this football season? Scarf? Hat? Afghan? Beer Sweater?

Yay, a return to the thing that made me fall in love with you originally way back when . . . Cascade 220 Football!

LOVES IT.

I'm off to knit me a Dolphin's hat - that's sorta green and orange, right?

That is sort of green and orange!!!

I'm working on another Football related project that promises to make me blind.

Ooooh, I also have a chart for the NFL Logo!! It's so filthy dirty, it's like smashmouth knitting.

I wanna make that hat! Not in Lions colors though.

Can you believe Western is playing Nebraska?! I so need to make myself a WMU hat. I should've checked that out at the shop today.

I've got the Browns covered. Now I just have to knit it. *sigh*

Holly Bee said...

Ah! Dirty Corn Huskers!

You went a fibering today, I see! How fun :)

I think I have some WMU yarn left I could probably throw your way!

I fully have the correct Steelers gold shade of Cascade 220 copied down in my cell phone, just in case the urge to knit up a throwback 70's style bobble hat ever hits me.

This football colors list is truly a great public service. :)
