Stitch n Pitch!

Last night was the annual Stitch n Pitch game for the SF Giants!  It was simultaneously perfect (the Giants won!  First time in a couple years!) and absolutely dreadful (I ran out of yarn before the game even started?!?!?)!

It was a gorgeous evening!  and we’ve got the best ballpark in MLB, so naturally, the only thing I can complain about is my lack of yarn.

Before I even got to the game…D’oh!  Unfortunately, this isn’t a case of leaving the other ball at home.  I am out OUT!  I will attempt to find more and get a dye lot match.  I’m not optimistic though.  and things were going so well…

Turns out my good buddy garter stitch really sucks up the yarn!  It’ll be a shame to frog this but if I don’t get a match, that’s the unavoidable reality.   In the meantime, I’ll console myself by stuffing my new Stitch n Pitch project bag with fun bits of yarn!

I said I only had one complaint so I’ll just keep my feelings about this cheap plastic made in china off gassing piece of junk to myself.  It’s not like the Giants can afford better, after all. </sarcasm>

FO Friday!

With a little luck, I can use FO Friday as my title every Friday!  This week I hit that goal with a new hat for the shop!  With 4 days until pitchers and catchers report for spring training, I’ve got the SF Giants on the brain!  And I’ve always got Jerry on the brain, but especially these days with all the chatter about the Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary shows this summer!  It’s been a busy week, I needed to kill two birds with every stone so…

BAM!  Giants, Dead, Stashbusting, Queue Clearing and Shop Stocking all in one!  This beauty was knit from the bottom up in Cascade’s Highland Duo.  The Steal Your Face was added by duplicate stitch and the brim was reinforced with a touch of elastic to give this hat years of wear!  It can be yours now, just click here!  It’s gonna be slow to ship, won’t go out until Tuesday so shipping is free if you order this weekend!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  (I did not stick to yesterday’s plan…come back Monday to see how it turns out…I’m curious myself!)
