At this time last week, I had high hopes for the Chicago Bears and a Superbowl appearance. Even though Jay Cutler, our starting quarterback, left the game with an injury, they came very close to a last minute victory. Hats off to Da Bears!
Now it's time to turn our attention to the big game. The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers will be taking the field on February 6th. Can you think of two teams with more rabid fans?
We've dyed up a couple of special colors. One the left is Go Packers! And on the right is Pittsburgh Pride. I'm not sure two fans would really cozy up like that.
You can get Go Packers! at Yarns by Design in Neenah, WI. The Pittsburgh Pride is at Natural Stitches in Pittsburgh.
We'd like to give away one skein of Shepherd Sock to a fan of each team. Leave a comment letting us know whether you'll be rooting for the Packers or Steelers and we'll pick a winner from each side using a random number generator on the day after the game.
**Edited to add:
I just got a call from the nice folks over at Signature Needle Arts. They want a piece of the Super Bowl action too!
They are generously upping the kitty in our little Packer/Steeler contest and have offered to give away one pair of straight needles to each of our lucky winners. In keeping with the theme, they have gold needles (sized 1 and 6) and green needles (3 and 8). Or you can pick another color if you'd like.
