Do you remember the Scoreboard Knitalong from last year? Maybe you took part in it?
The idea was to knit a scarf or cowl in two colors throughout the football season, with each row representing a point scored either by your team or the opposing team. Nearly 900 people posted projects on Ravelry during last year’s event, and it’s just about time for version 2.0.
This year’s knitalong is starting earlier, August 1, to be able to accommodate people who want to knit the score for their favorite high school football team (wouldn’t that be a cool gift for a guy on the team?).
In order to entice people to sign up this year, Skacel is hosting a giveaway of 13 skeins of HiKoo Simplicity, the yarn of choice for the knitalong. The winner will receive 6 skeins each in their team’s two colors, plus one contrasting color, which can be used to mark where a new game started.
If you’d like a chance to win, send an email that includes your football team name, your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Their newsletter didn’t say when entries close, but the winner will be announced May 30, 2016, so get your emails in before then.
Are you going to take part in Scoreboard 2.0? What team are you knitting for? Or if you did it last year I’d love to hear about that, too.
