NaBloPoMo, November 3: Knitting!

Taoiseach and I have been knitting scarves!

Here’s the background story: he would like to expand his collection of vintage-style hockey sweaters, but the nice ones are about $130 apiece, and it’s just not possible to find sweaters for really old teams from the dawn of hockey history.

So he’s taken up knitting, and plans to knit himself sweaters for old-timey teams like the Cobalt Silver Kings and Haileybury Comets.

He started by knitting himself a scarf. He chose the colours and knitted the entire thing himself!

Now we’re on the prowl for a good pattern that he can use for his first attempt at a hockey sweater.
