Stitches and Sticks

Chicks with knitting stitches and the Avalanche with hockey sticks, that is. Interweave Knits, based here in Colorado, had a special promotion for knitters/crocheters willing to donate a red scarf to the Orphan Foundation of America. The red scarves will be included in Valentine Day's gift bags for kids heading off to college - very cool indeed.

My husband still plays hockey, but it was the first live game for Connor and me. It would have been even better if they had won, but they chose to lose to the Coyotes. So depressing to watch.

Anyway, this is what I made:

I saw this made up by Liana (Sew Intriguing - hers is 2/3 way down the Dec '05 entries) and the pattern is here. Isn't it cute? It look less than half of skein of worsted (LionBrand Wool Ease). I was so nervous that I wouldn't get it finished in time, that I started at the beginning of January. It took 3 very short evenings and I'll have to make up a few more. Don't the ends look like hearts? Thanks Liana.
