I love football in the fall. Especially on Sundays. I prefer the 1:00 games, when it’s all bright and crisp and sunny out, as opposed to all these late games the Steelers have been playing, but I’ll take what I can get. Funny, I was never all that into football until I lived in Pittsburgh, cause here, football isn’t a game, it’s a Religion.
I finished Brandt’s Gameday Socks a few weeks ago, before the first regular season game. I just didn’t get around to blogging them. Raveled Here.
I dyed the yarn for them, I had a couple of skeins of superwash merino from knitpicks hanging around from forever ago, and decided to put them to good use. I still have a ton of yarn left over, more than enough to make another pair of the same, which should come in handy when/if these ever wear out.
I knit them simultaneously, each on their own needle, US 1 (2.5mm), magic loop style. I knit the toe on one, then the other, then alternating increments of ten rows until they were done. I think I did these over two weeks. Just like his first socks, Brandt loves these too, but only wears them on Gamedays.
Day 5: Stealth Knitting? Finished.
