Complete with size 19 needles and some yarn! And I heart the book – “the Travel Guide 2006” It’s full of maps of every state with little stars were all the yarn stores are, and a directory so that you can call them. I’m totally going to just leave it in my car – like you would do with an atlas – so that wherever I am I can always find yarn. It would have come in very handy that one time I spent an hour driving around in circles looking for Knitters Mercantile....
The organizers even made signs that said Stitch n Pitch for us to hold up between innings all sports-fans like:
But we were hot. Real hot in the sun and in the crowd and without the wind… and really, knitting with wool – even if it’s sock weight – in that hot is un-fun. So we moved further up into the shade and breeze and space to put our feet up…
which meant that we dropped the ball a little bit on the sign holding up… It now read “ITCH N PITCH”
It was a totally fun evening, though!
From L to R: Knitting a dishcloth, frogging a blanket, my mom knitting socks, me knitting a baby hat so that my best friend’s sister would finally get to not be pregnant anymore (have you heard the superstition that babies won’t come unless you knit for them? This kid has a hat now. He’s still being very stubborn. According to his mom once he’s born he’s going straight into time-out for being this late.), and Michelle knitting a sock.
In other news… .have you seen this website? It creates knitting charts all automatic-like without having to draw it in AutoCad (I don’t care if it’s geeky – drafting programs are perfect for figuring out knitting patterns)! Very, very cool.
