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.
