Take me out to the ball game!

We had lots of fun at the San Francisco Giants Stitch ‘n Pitch last night!

Top reasons:

1) The company! The gals from one of my favorite LYS:


Chloe and Kevin

Kay & Sandi

Cookie A., CJ, Hollis, and lots of other knitters were there too, but I didn’t get pictures of everyone.

Taught the hubby how to knit – see, here’s the proof!

And, I also got a picture of the hubby taking a picture of Emy and her fabulous purpleness!

The Clapotis for my friend is not a good ballgame knit anymore because it takes a little too much concentration, and it’s at that unwieldy stage (more than 3/4 done), I’m in the 4th (and last) ball of Ritratto. I like to take small mindless projects to the game, thus the Diversity Scarf (scroll down almost to the bottom) with its stockinette/reverse stockinette bands was a good choice. (sorry for the blurriness!)

Not-so-great fun: Giants lost (again). We had left in the middle of the 8th inning (something about having to be at work at 8 AM, grrr). After a l-o-n-g wait at the CalTrain station, we finally were let onboard at almost 10 PM, after standing for almost a half-hour in a huge line. People had left the game early (after what they thought was Barry’s last at-bat) to beat the crowds but got stuck in another crowd. Turns out that we missed a great bottom of the 9th rally to tie the game at 4-4. By the time we got home just before 11:30, the game was still going, but the Giants still lost in the 13th inning.
