Late Post Red Sox take ALDS against LAAngels

Monday October 6th 2008.  Game 4 of the ALDS  Red Sox vs LA Angels
Awesome!  First playoff game ever - 11th game at Fenway this year.  They have won all 11 games I have been to at Fenway and won the 2 games I saw at Camden Yard.
Congratulations to the team!
Hugs for everyone!

Great job by Jon Lester and team!  Bring on the Rays!
Time to go watch them play on tv - we will be in Fenway for game 3 on Monday afternoon!   YEAH!!!!  Lester pitching again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Glad it is an afternoon game - we didn't get home until 230am after Monday night game and I had to be up at 530 for work - it was a very long day! 
 Stopped to get an xlg hot chocolate at Starbucks to help me get moving - boy did that make my heart race!    I was afraid to sit down all day - 3 hours of sleep makes me a little tired!
No knitting done at the game - I brought it with me but was up and down all night with the crowd so had to put it away!  The crowd was a lot tenser than during the regular season!  But it was an awesome feeling to be there for the win!

Mets Stitch n Pitch 9/25/08

Big adventure to NYC for hr Mets Stitch n Pitch game.  A couple friends and I took the train then the subway to Shea stadium to watch the Cubs play the Mets for the Stitch N Pitch game.  We had a great time.
Here is Lily Chin in a Mets uniform she knitted holding a crocheted baseball and glove and also wearing a crocheted baseball hat.  Wow, a lot of work went in to this uniform!  I won a raffle prize of one of her books.  Knitting and Crocheting with beads.  Very nice book.  
This is a picture of the goody bag we received from Nancy O Boutique in Ridgefield where we bought our tickets.   Lots of nice things.  Some really nice patterns to try.   Nancy O even added some very pretty shawl sticks.  Her store is worth the trip to see.  Very nice and very friendly!

This is Kay Gardiner from the Mason - Dixon knitting blog and books.  She was awesome to talk to .  I have ordered their new book - she had some of the projects displayed and they were great.   The scarf she has on was knitted by Lily Chin - it is a baseball scarf - very cute!
It did start to rain and we left after the 6th inning but had a great time and can't wait to go again next year!  
I even got to meet Janice - a new friend from the Dish Rag Tag who lives in Long Island.  We met up at the game - very nice to meet a swap friend!  in person!  She gave me the cutest angel pin which is now on my Red Sox bag to bring them good luck tonight in the playoffs!
I went to 2 Stitch n Pitch games this year.  One in Bridgeport in June and this one at Shea in Sept. and they were both great.  If you get the chance to go to a game - DO IT!  You won't be sorry!
