Some (or even many) of you may have noticed that the Soccer World Championship is upon us. Usually I am not too interested in soccer but at the World Championship you can see the best teams of the world. So I’m watching quite a lot of tournaments.
What I discovered is that watching soccer and appliquéing a block does not go together very well. Concentrate on the appliqué and you miss the goals, look at the TV screen more and your stitches will get bigger.
But I can knit almost blind. So I searched for some wool (long forgotten in my drawers) and did cast on for a cardigan – my World Champion Soccer Cardigan. It is knit from the neckline down and really easy. And I can watch TV and keep my hands busy.
So far the cardigan has seen the winning teams of Germany, England and Colombia.
We’ll see how much knitting will be done during the championship. If it’s not finished by then there is always the Tour de France to watch.
