Win some spirit—Spirit Stripes yarn and needles!

It's football season! This time of year is close to my heart because I grew up in a football family. My dad played at San Diego State, and then coached at Washington State. My brother played there later, and I got my degree at WSU. So, GO COUGS!

I've probably watched a thousand football games in my life, and when I became a knitter, I enjoyed them even more. I look forward to several hours on the couch each weekend, knitting and cheering on my teams.

I know there are many of you out there who love this time of year, too, for the football and the knitting/crocheting, so we're doing another giveaway!

You could win three balls of Universal Uptown Spirit Stripes yarn in your choice of colors, plus a set of US 9 (5.50 mm) Brittany Single point needles. To enter, just leave a comment below and tell us who you're rooting for this fall!

Three balls is enough to make the hat and scarf pattern below left, and check out the other cute projects you can make with this yarn. All of these are free patterns you can download from our free pattern page!

Good luck, and go team!

My dad would be so mad at me if I said anything other than the Packers. Now that I think about it, I’d probably be disowned by my entire family. So, definitely the Packers.

I’m not so much of a football fan, but growing up the home team was the UW Huskies.
