I know, sports is anathema to most of you, but with the introduction of the stitch n pitch promotions by the mariners and the white sox, some of you have got to be interested. I just got a job at a yarn company (not LYS) and we're trying to promote similar events in our town, blessed with many sports teams, many of the unable to put asses in their seats. Stitch n pitch, we've got. I was just wondering if anybody had any other cute sports knitting gathering name ideas? Mostly we're thinking hockey and football, but they being less, er um contemplative, they might not be suited for a mass knit out. what do you guys think?

I keep boxes of beautiful dreams
And late at night
When no ones in sight

(Considering that in the past 7 days I have watched at LEAST 5 football games (both NFL & CFL) and I can't WAIT for the NHL season to start... one could probably say that I *like* sports!! )

-Chicks & Sticks  -  Hockey  (I know that Chicks with Sticks is pretty common around knitting circles, but I have seen a women's hockey team that had Chicks & Sticks on their team jackets)

That's all I got for right now.  I'm sure I'll wake up in the middle of the night with more... 


if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Or Sticks & Yarn for the hockey - after all knitting needles are sometimes referred to as 'sticks' - you could even put together a logo of knitting with hockey sticks.  Or playing mini hockey with knitting needles with those sock shaped point protectors on the ends Wink

Pass & Purl?  Frog Your Fumbles?  Hmm, football seems harder....  Although you could have a logo of a football player holding one of those big football shaped balls of yarn (photoshop maybe?) instead of the ball...
