Take me out

What better way to spend a 100-degree evening than at a baseball game with wool in your lap? Scott and I went to the first (annual maybe?) Stitch N’ Pitch at Shea Stadium on Wednesday night.

I originally wanted to work on a sock that I’ve designed myself called “Norbert” however I forgot to bring the size needle I needed for the heel, I blame the heat.
This pair of socks has seen quite good time lately; I brought them along to Rent with me for the train ride but forgot the needle (I see a theme here) and then they went to Shea. One of these days they will be finished and I will share the pattern with everyone.

Thankfully I threw another project in my bag before I left:


These socks were more a more appropriate color anyway. I absolutely love the way that the yarn (STR in “Sunstone”) and the pattern (Eunny Jang’s “Bayerische sock”) look together. Even Scott always says that these are a cool pair of socks every time I work on them.

Here’s my sweetie having a good time.

This was the first game I’ve been to where the Mets have won! We both had a great time together despite the fact that it was so hot. We also received some nice gift bags with some interesting yarn and great magazines that I did not have. The weather has been disgusting so I can’t get a great picture, maybe this weekend I can get one up of the goodies.

I love your Bayerische sock and I can't believe you can concentrate on it while at a game; that's great! I have to restart my pair.

We'll have sister socks! My Sunstone is knit up in the Cablenet pattern :)

I can't believe you were at a baseball game in all that heat. I'm glad you had fun!

Your sock IS rockin'! LOL!

How cool that you got to go to the game. If it wasn't a 2 hour drive I would have gone. I miss my Mets.

Bonding with the fella AND knitting. Now, how can that be bad?
