Take Me Out To The Ballgame!

Oh My God . . . I just discovered that I am a "knitting addict!" . . . my employers gave me a couple of tickets to see our local team's baseball game Thursday night . . . and beside taking my hubby, our comfy padded cushions (those metal seats really hurt after 4 hours) and frozen bottles of water (it thaws out pretty fast in the heat wave we are having again around here) . . . I took my no brainer kniting with me!!!!! . . . for me "no brainer knitting" is working on an item where all you do is knit row after row after row for however many inches . . . when my hubbie and I got settled in I asked him if he would be embaressed if I knitted during the game . . . it was okay with him . . . so out of the bag comes in all its bright red glory the yarn (one of our home teams colors I'll have you know!) . . . I did get a couple of strange looks but no one said anything to me about it . . . I was even able to concentrate on the game . . . saw a couple of really fantistic plays . . . clapped, stomped my feet and yelled when I was suppose to . . . I even participated in the "chicken dance" and the Village People YMCA sing-a-long . . . and the biggest surprise to me was I didn't drop a stitch!!!!! . . . well needless to say I will be taking my knitting with me when I go to the baseball games from now on . . . I also learned the next afternoon when I went to my semi-LYS for needles (honest that was all I went in there for-double pointed needles and I still have not figured out how I also came out it 12 skiens of yarn and a handmade button) . . . anyway I was told that what I did Thursday night is called "Pitch and Knit" and women have been doing it for ages . . .

I am still working on project #2 ("roadkill" - hey he might be done by Christmas Heather) and project #1 (granddaughter baby sweater - I am in the middle of completing the second sleeve and then it will be done thanks again Lucy for the help) and have also added a couple of more little projects . . . my friend Lynn so inspired me with her felted bowls that I had to try knitting one for myself . . . I used some of the left over yellow yarn that my SP8 pal gave me to make the "rick rack" purse (thanks again SP8 pal - your gift just keeps on letting me make all kinds of additional fun things) . . . no before and after pictures - right now computer is not corporating I don't think it likes the heat either . . . soooooo . . . that's all for now . . . stay cool!!!!!!

An fyi, there is a website called stitchandpitch.com which binds baseball together with the TNNA.
