Stanley Cup Finals Socks

It started as a way to use my nervous energy. It ended up with a championship

I grabbed some sock yarn from my stash - Knit Picks Static - that I could knit without worrying about lining up stripes for heels and the like, so I could just knit, knit, knit during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

I made it through the first sock during the first game of the Western Conference Finals.

I chose a new skein for the second game of the Conference Finals.

And a third skein for the fourth game.

And then, one more as the Avs swept the Oilers.

I didn't finish the socks in each game, but by the time the next round started, I was set.

And then it was time for the Stanley Cup Finals. So I started over. Game One Yarn for Game One, Game Two Yarn for Game get the point.

Game 1 we won

Game 2 we won

Game 3 we lost - badly - uh oh - I am going to need a 5th skein.

Game 4 we won

Game 5 we got outplayed. I was so not happy during the game, I barely knit.

Game 6 we won. I was on the runway in Minneapolis when it happened, knitting the Game 5 yarn that I hardly used for game 4 (I had been out at a bar in Rochester).
