For those that do not know me very well (or haven’t read the About Me section, and shame on you if you haven’t), I am a NASCAR Nut. I have been one since….oh…about the late 80’s or so. Even though I am Canadian and *should* love hockey, curling, ice skating and careening down a tree-filled slope 90 miles an hour on a pair of skinny wooden planks, NASCAR is my sport of choice. There is something about the 43 Supercharged 800+ horsepower engines roaring to life every week that give me goosebumps.
In honour of my NASCAR fetish, I created a set of woolies I appropriately call “Checkered Flags Fly”.
This set of mitts, hat and cowl are designed to mimic the black and white checked pattern of the flag that flies for the winner of each race. It is a very easy pattern to follow, especially for the Beginner, whom I promise, you will not be tempted to throw away your needles because it is too tough to follow, and it also is not too boring for the more experienced knitters out there. Enough of a pattern to keep your mind slightly occupied while you plan your next pair of lace-patterned socks.
