March Madness, my friends, March Madness. No matter what your level of College Basketball knowledge, joining a March Madness NCAA Pick'em Pool is a must. My top 5 reasons for joining a Pick'em Pool:
Reason 5: Everyone else is joining.
Reason 4: There will be prizes.
Reason 3: You can impress the males in your life by uttering the simple phrase, "Who do you have going to the final four?"
Reason 2: The competitive spirit is good for your complexion
And the Number One reason for joining a March Madness Pick'em Pool:
There are lots and lots of games to watch, which translates into lots and lots of knitting time!
Don't have a pool to join? nona's got you covered! I'm hosting a Pick'em Tournament for knitters on Yahoo Sports. It's easy and fun to join and seriously, you don't have to know anything about basketball to get into the spirit. If you're interested in joining, please leave a comment or send me an email -- nonaKnits at gmail dot com -- and I'll send you the link and sign in information.

Count me in - even though I pick teams based on the school's academic record and for other wacky reasons, I wouldn't miss March Madness.

Usually, I'm just lurking, but YEA! Knitting and college basketball ... I can't resist! I'M IN! Go Hoosiers! Beat Gonzaga! As for knitting, I was inspired by Nona to do my own decease (and increase) swatch last night and it was such a great learning experience. I encourage all Nona readers to do likewise. I've been knitting for 20 years but I felt like a novice as I oh-h-ed and a-h-h-ed over the minute (and not so minute) differences each method presented. Thanks so much, Nona!!!
