Stitch and Pitch

I've started something new - can you guess what it is? Not that I needed yet another project but I came across this gorgeous and soft alpaca yarn and I just had to start on it right away. Don't worry - it's not another hat. Oops - admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. Hello, my name is Allison and I'm knitting another hat! But really, it's a top down hat rather than a bottom up hat so truly it's different. Oh well, I don't think I want to be cured anyway. Last week Mom and I went to the Giant's Stitch and Pitch and had a wonderful time. 23 major league baseball parks are holding Stitch and Pitch events this year and over 1,500 people attended for the Giant's event. We were in the nose bleed section - only 3 rows behind us at the very top of the park, but we were just to the left of home plate and had a good view. I feverishly worked on Miss K's green hat (shown in the Harry Potter photo) and finished it so she could take it to camp the next day. However when she saw it she decided she didn't want to take it to camp because she might get it dirty! Oh well - now that it's done I can start another hat . . .

That is a beautiful colorway you are knitting the totally different, top down hat in, LOL It is funny how those quick project become so addictive. We don't have a major league team here in IN but I did take my knitting to the last Indians game. I think I was the only one knitting, no Stitch and Pitch for us :(

ooohhh..love that new colorway of yarn you've started there! DD and I had a "discussion" about all the horsey waiting time...and since she does horsey stuff about 20-30 hrs each week...i just put my foot down and said..."i WILL knit" and it doesn't mean i don't love you or the ponies...it just means i can't sit here idle all day without turning into UberB....and nobody wants that...right! love that bright bag too. How fun to do nifty knittery stuff with your mom...lucky you :)
