Vintage Hockey Sweater for the Blackhawks Game
On Sunday the whole family went to the Blackhawks game. We have season tickets but thanks to jr.'s schedule we haven't made too many this year.
Having committed to dressing better I decided not to wear jeans and a jersey and instead put on a shirtwaist dress and a Mary Maxim knit hockey sweater. Unfortunately, the picture definitely isn't one of our best shots and you can't see the dress at all, but I thought I would share it here anyway.
I like vintage Mary Maxim graph knitting patterns but I LOVE it when I can find them already knit up. I believe this one was meant for a child since it is quite slim fitting, but that is what I like about it.
Sunday was a special occasion, one of Sean's favorite players of all time, Bob Probert, was signing autographs. He was a great goon and is ranked 4th overall for penalty minutes. Only one item could be signed per person, Sean brought his jersey, I brought William's Levi's jean jacket and I just grabbed a random jersey for myself. Just before it was our turn, a 20-something guy came up to the line and was trying to get the people in front of us to take his jersey to be autographed. They all refused because of the item limit, but I had the guts to ask "What's it worth to you?" A few moments later he had a dedicated, autographed jersey and I have enough cash to get my hair done and my eyebrows waxed!
