So kickoff on football season is one week from today and we are getting EXCITED. Matt has been watching all of the coverage he can get his hands on, our fantasy teams are set, and even the baby is good to go:
My mom knit the sweater for her.
Don’t the little football buttons just make it!
My fantasy team is looking good this year… although the competition is going to be stiff this season. We took things seriously and there were hardly any draft decisions made based on player hotness:
Pic from my draft. Funtimes were had.
Although Tony Romo went pretty late since noone wanted him on their team after what he did to Jessica.
So while I’m not really in the business of dying sports team yarns I got a bit caught up in the frenzy and this happened:
And I couldn’t very well dye Sixburgh without also dying Believeland:
EDITED TO ADD: I sold out of Believeland! Thanks guys! I actually had one skein that wasn't listed because I was saving it for me. So since there was demand I listed it this morning. It's the last one, though!
Because although I agreed to raise my child as a Steelers fan (in exchange for Matt agreeing to raise her Catholic. Marriage is all about the compromises) I do still know where I came from.
And since I was on a roll I had to dye the one place that I think should def be represented by its team colors:
Those fans are the most insane I’ve ever encountered. (here’s the post where I tailgated like a Buckeye, and the one with the Ohio State Superfan Hat pattern)
And since I was just in northern Wisconsin for vacation (unblogged) I figured I may as well do a colorway for the cheeseheads, too.
The cool thing about that one is that the landscape matches their team colors. So it works both ways.
Anways I had fun doing this but not enough fun to make this a part of my regularly scheduled programming. So these colorways are limited edition. I’ve listed what I have and when they are gone, they’re gone. Knit something fun for the superfan in your life - available at Destination Yarn!
My only question now is do I use this yarn to knit for Matt or the baby?
It’s ok mommy, I have enough Steelers gear. See how cute this bib is?
I wonder what it tastes like...
