Phillies Fever and some Knitting

In jake, Knitting, Phillies on October 28, 2008 at 8:24 pm

Despite the miserable, wet and windy weather, the town is abuzz about the Phillies and the World Series. Dan and I have Phillies gear to wear about town and support our team. And now, Jake does too.

From Jake

I had ordered the new collar before the World Series started, but only received it yesterday. Presumably, I wasn’t the only dog owner who wanted to deck their best friend out in Phillies gear. Dan surmised that Game 5 was suspended and then delayed just so Jake could get his collar in time to help support our boys.
I smile everytime I see him in his new collar.

From Jake

During the World Series games, I have been getting some knitting done. For the first time in a long time, I am knitting something I didn’t design.

It is Kelly’s Rievaulx Cowl. If you click on the previous link, you’ll be able to read how Kelly was inspired to create this design plus you’ll be able to obtain the free pattern. Ravelry users can click here.

I chose to knit Kelly’s cowl for two reasons: (1) I needed an easy knitting project to keep my hands busy during the World Series games and (2) I wanted to support an up and coming knitting designer. Hopefully, this design will be the first of many designs to come from Kelly.

I made just one change to the pattern; I opted to double the length of the ribbing in Kelly’s Rolls and Ribs version. It’s cold in Pennsylvania this time of year.

Finished pictures coming soon.
