My Stitch N' Pitch Review

First, let me say that I had many preconcieved notions about baseball, and thought it was a boring sport, and couldn't understand how and why so many people were into it. However, after Stitch N' Pitch, my feelings have changed.
This is the view from my seat. I sat next to Saunielle and very close to Chante and her son Jamal.

Here is an unsuspecting picture of Chante knitting her sock, and Jamal posing and smiling. Isn't he so adorable? Chante, I will say once again, that you are an excellent mother, and he is a wonderful child.

He even participated in the knitting festivities. Wow, I am impressed. He was so dedicated too!!Here is a picture of Jamal, Chante, and our fellow Sit N' Knit member Allena. She is wearing the gorgeous Limited Edition Sit N Knit /Stitch N Pitch T-shirt that I took too long to order, so now I am jealous that I don't have one. ( Jealous in a good way, of course)

Here is a Candid shot of Sit N' Knit organizer Anne-Marie and I, knitting and chatting away.

We were talking a bunch of nonsense at this time, so the facial gestures are a little wacky. But, nonetheless, whatever we were saying was hilarious. People on the train car were staring. I am not sure if they were really interested in what we were saying, or the fact that our lips and our needles were moving at top speed, and we did not make any mistakes.

Now for my thoughts on the game. I was pleasantly surprised that the time actually flew by. Baseball is so much slower on TV. I loved the little entertainment things that they did every time there was a break between innings. While I was watching the game, I explained a few things to Saunielle, and realized that I knew a lot more about baseball than I thought I knew.

So, in essence I had a lot of fun, and will be going to the next Mets vs. Braves game in September with one of my friends who is a die-hard Mets fan. He already warned me that I cannot bring my knitting. But, I don't listen to what men tell me to do, and I feel that if I am making a pair of gloves for him, as he kindly requested, then he will just have to deal with it. :-) More updates on that in about a month.

Looks like fun. I'm so sorry I missed it!

Looks like you had a great time! There was an aticle about it in the NY Times with a photo that described the women in the photo as crocheters. BUT everyone in the photo was knitting as far as I can tell. It infuriates me that newspaper fact-checking doesn't extend to the fiber arts. Enough ranting! So glad you enjoyed the game. Must get you to a Yankee game!

I LOVE baseball (The Met's are my fav team)! I am so sorry to have missed this. Looks like you guys had a great time. Oh well, I just got in from my flight and I am exhausted. I have a 5K race at Shea Stadium tomorrow morning.

They were staring because they couldn't believe how incredibly gorgeous we are. And we were saying funny stuff. But really, it was because we were looking HAWT.

No Annie, you're gorgeous. I'm just sitting there looking all greasy. Where is my pressed powder??? LOL!!!
