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!
