Pucks n' Purls

The Downtown Knit Collective (Toronto's downtown knitting guild) has teamed up with the Toronto Marlies hockey organization to bring a fun afternoon that raises awareness and promotes knitting in our communities.
Date: Saturday, February 11, 2012
Location: Ricoh Coliseum
Marlies' Alley Open: 1:30 p.m.
Gates Open: 2:00 p.m.
Game Time: 3:00 p.m.
Pucks n' Purls Seating: Behind Marlies Bench (Section 100/119)
Price: $20 per ticket

Pucks n’ Purls will feature a professional hockey game between the Toronto Marlies and the Hamilton Bulldogs which are affiliates of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens so there should be lots of on-ice and in-stands rivalry.  Activities are planned before, during and after the game including Marlies Alley, Fastest Knitter Face Off, Duke the Dog Yarn Toss, and prize draws.  Duke the Dog, Marlies mascot, will be presented by a toque or scarf designed and knitted by DKC members.  Contestants are working on their entries now.
The activity that is creating the most buzz is the post game skate.  This is an activity exclusive to Pucks n’ Purls ticket holders.  Starting 15 minutes after the game, there will be a one hour free skate (no hockey) for 250 people on the Marlies ice.  What a great memory!

What a great way to spend the afternoon with your family. And they can't say anything about you knitting at a hockey game. :)
