My hockey knitting is going slowly and I know why, it's the yarn. Red Heart Super Saver. My knitting group was graciously given a boatload of yarn and I picked the wrong stuff. I imagine all knitters are a very tactile group, so if you have knit with this stuff you know what I'm feeling, a very hard abrasive yarn. Since I don't like the feel, I don't want to pick it up and work with it, but since I started the project I should finish it. I picked it up with very good intentions, its colors remind me of camouflage and when I see what friends knit they usually knit something for little girls so I thought I would do something for a little guy. I'm bound and determined to do this one and then never speak of this yarn again.
This picture was taken earlier this week I am significantly further and was knitting away on it while watching MFB's Leafs loose the game by giving up a three goal lead (yes they should be red faced about that) and lost in the shoot out. I also was working away on it while in the arena waiting for the Penn State Icers season home opener to start last night. The Icers defeated Scranton 4-2 but there were some anxious moments on the way to the win.
Tonight we have on tap Leafs vs Flames on TV and tomorrow afternoon I'm at the arena watching the Icers against Navy. I'll get about an hour of knitting time there before the game.
