If you’re not a knitter the title of this post may be confusing. KAL? Cowl? Let me clarify: today I am talking about one of my current knitting projects, the Scoreboard Cowl. It’s a long tubular scarf and it’s a knit-a-long (aka KAL) that will last for the entire Patriots football season.
The idea is pretty simple – pick two colors to represent your favorite football team and then knit the points as they are scored in each game. I chose blue for the Pats points and red for their opponents each week. The yarn is Knit Picks Swish DK.
As you can see, the Pats are doing rather well. (If you’re a hater keep your thoughts to yourownself please.) I’m starting to be concerned about having enough of the blue but that’s an awesome problem to have, honestly.
I was late to the party on this one so I had a fair amount of catching up to do. I started on a bye week but it still took me until last Sunday to finally be current. And now I’m about to fall behind again since I will be out of town this week. It’s okay, though, it’s good mindless knitting and that might be just what I need when I return from my upcoming adventures.
More on that tomorrow.
In the meantime, tell me, what are you knitting these days?
