What a great idea! I had no idea there were so many of us, though I really shouldn't have been surprised. :) Two of my very favorite things that go so well together-- hockey and knitting! [thanks for the comment about the KAL in your blog, Dipsy D! :) ]
I've been a Caps fan since I was born-- I grew up in the DC area and recently moved back to DC. I'm also a Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL) and Calder Cup Champ Hershey Bears (AHL, also the Caps affiliate) fan. I have Caps season tickets, so I go to a lot of games! I'll watch any team play though, and my DH and I love to take road trips to see other teams play (we actually met because of hockey).
I have some charity knitting and crocheting in progress and this is a perfect way to work on more of it! I will probably work on some Dulaan and/or CIC projects as well as some local hospital projects I have in progress.
I look forward to this KAL -- tonight my boys kick off their season at MSG against Lesley's Rangers and I will be set up in front of the tv to knit and watch! :)
