Nittany Knits

Tuesday, May 15, 2007


Last night's Stitch N Pitch baseball game was the best! For the low low price of ten dollars, Large Marge and I saw a great baseball game , got fiber related goodies, met some very fun knitters, and were even on TV.
The Washington Nationals played a great game and beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1. Even Marge was into the game- somewhat.
It all started when we arrived to find the Stitch N Pitch people set-up and ready to give us our new knitting bags filled with stuff. Needles, yarn, patterns, magazines, coupons, and the 2006 yarn store travel guide. Yeah!
After getting our beer and goodies, we headed to our seats to meet up with the flock of knitters who had come out for the event. (O.K., so there were crocheters and needlepoint type people there as well, but mostly knitters) I knew we were in the right spot when the gal already sitting next to my seat had a Guiness and was working on her reversable Socks That Rock.
The ceremonial first pitch thrown out by the mascot was a ball of yarn. We , the yarn communtiy were out in force, and the media was after us. Photos and TV cameras were everywhere.
Many beers and stitches later, the game was over but the fun was still going on. We met so many memorable people. Everyone at RFK stadium was great! The knitters were friendly. Their families were tolerant. The kids selling Krispy Cream donuts after the game were a hoot.
Pictures are on the way. I can't wait to go to the Stitch N Pitch in Pittsburgh on July 8th!!!
Happy Knitting!

  • Lucky Ducks, all you needed was a little Sangria to make the night perfect.

  • Hey Nit, was anyone down in accessible seating? I really thought about going, but my DH reminded me I wouldn't be able to get the scooter up RFK's narrow steps(tee hee). Maybe I'll work on it sooner next year and drum up a few other "rollers".
