Pucks & Purls 2009 at ShoWare Center

On Sunday, February 22, 2009, folks from Renaissance Yarns, The Yarn Stash and Skacel enjoyed a WHL hockey game at ShoWare Center in Kent, WA. The game, known as Pucks & Purls, was between the Seattle Thunderbirds and the Vancouver Giants. The T-birds pulled out a win in a closely battled game. One of the highlights of the game was the penalty shot that Boyer took against the Vancouver goaltender. Boyer skillfully manevuered the puck down the ice and took a shot - 'HE SCORES'! But, how could he miss?

Cool Bird demonstrates his knitting skills. Of course, he received a considerable amount of help from his fans! For the mavens who are reading this blog, we are talking US 50 needles here!

A trio of spectators enjoy knitting at the game. How they managed to knit and keep an eye on the puck and knit is beyond me!

We tried our hand at 'Chuck a Puck'. We sent in our big guns (the kids in our group - of course). We had a great time watching these pucks come from every direction! A still picture certainly does not do this unusual event justice!

Yes, the did pay attention to the game! Looking forward to next year's event!
