Our hugely popular Scoreboard KAL continues until January and it is absolutely not too late to start, so come on by to pick up your yarn in your favorite football team's colors. For each game your team plays, you knit a row for each point scored (in the order scored) and you will have a beautiful scarf at the end of football season. (For Example: Choose black and gold yarns for the Saints - knit a black row for each point the Saints score, and knit a gold row for each point the opponent scores. By the end of the season you will have completed a beautiful, unusual and one-of-a-kind scarf, and you will be looking forward to and enjoying football games more than you ever thought possible! Ha!)

You will receive a Scoreboard Project bag for participating (while supplies last) and 10% off of your yarn for this knit-a-long. We have many yarn colors to choose from and we can order your teams colors if we do not have them in stock. Click here for team schedules: Saints, UL-L, LSU).
