Summer is really winding down now--most of our tomatoes have been harvested, local schools are back in session, and the Orioles are busy throwing away their postseason chances. As usual, I'm pretty ready to bid summer a fond farewell.
Fall is MY season--changing leaves, cooler weather, sweaters, pumpkin everything, my birthday, RHINEBECK, our wedding anniversary, Halloween, Thanksgiving . . .
The only thing I'm less than excited about is football. I've always felt rather "meh" about football--too much standing around doing nothing, flags on every darn play, your home team only plays one game a week. It's no baseball.
But I have a plan to inject some excitement into the game this year: BostonJen of the Down Cellar Studio podcast is once again hosting the Pigskin Party KAL--and this year, MediaPeruana Designs is a sponsor!
You can find all details here, but the basic idea is: knit along during football season, finish projects, earn points, win big. And since I'm a sponsor this year, you'll get EXTRA points for using any of my patterns! Not only that, but to help everyone get their game face on, I'm offering a special discount on my self-published patterns throughout September and October. You can find that, and coupon codes from other sponsors, in this thread.
So get your name on the Roster and get ready for kickoff on September 10!
