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!
