Football season has almost officially started, and last Friday I got the chance to go to a preseason Steelers game at Fedex field. I was, of course, knitting. During half time, the stadium put a large message up on the jumbotron stating that we should report any inappropriate activity that could be ruining our enjoyment of the game. My husband turned to me and told me that he was going to report me. Why? Because I was knitting. Apparently this isn’t “appropriate” for a football game in his opinion. (Yet bouncing cheerleaders are?) For me, football season is the best knitting time. It is four hours every week of dedicated knitting time. So it has me thinking that I need a football season project…something that I only work on during the Steeler games. I could absolutely be finishing one of several black and gold projects that I have started in past seasons, but what is the fun in that. I am instead thinking that it would be an ideal time to dedicate to my holiday gifts. This means that I have only a couple more weeks to make my gift list and determine what I am knitting for whom and gather my materials together. If you are also a football watcher, let me know what you plan to work on during the season.
