The official football season kicks off this Wednesday with the Cowboys playing the Giants.  My Redskins don't play until Sunday, and to celebrate I've decided to offer 10% off in my Etsy shop the week following a win.  The offer will stand all season and will run the day after a win through Friday.  Just use the coupon code, "Redskins" to get your discount.

Another exciting Etsy announcement is that Etsy is now offering gift certificates.  You'll need to pay with a credit card rather than Paypal, but you can purchase the gift certificate & either print it to give away or email it to the recipient.  The gift certificates will be good for any Etsy shop.

In knitting news, I've been busy finishing up (as in the dreaded weaving in the ends and/or blocking) all the projects I completed while I was laid up with the leg injury.  I haven't photographed everything yet, but a few of my favorites are:

I absolutely LOVE this one!  It's a rectangular shawl or oversized scarf knit with over 30 different multicolored yarns, some in shades you'd never in a million years think would work together.  The end result, however, is a blur of subdued color.

This scarf is incredibly soft and the colors remind me of stained glass.  This is another one that I had a hard time listing in the shop instead of keeping for myself.

The photo is not doing this shawl justice.  It's knit with a hand painted sock yarn in shades of plum, wine, burgundy and a light purple that looks more gray than purple.  This is another project that I was tempted to keep for myself.

If you are interested, all of the above can be purchased here, as well as a several other new items that have been recently added.

Now, I'm off to go make my football grocery list.  What will you be eating during the game?
