Last night I went to watch the Seattle Mariners play the Baltimore Orioles at the 10th annual Stitch 'N Pitch. We had a group of 10, 5 Eastside Stitchers, and Family. Tara1682, Wireknitter, Readnitdream, JulieMustKnit and I brought various dh's and kids to watch the game and enjoy the fiber fun.
There was a market set up with soooo many LYSs represented. It was almost like a mini LYS-Crawl, but both South and North Puget Sound shops were represented.

All around us people were knitting or crocheting. The two knitters in front of me were working on colorwork projects, a pair of mittens, and a hat. What?? I asked them, how could you bring colorwork? I had brought a very simple hat to knit. They both laughed and admitted that they had just grabbed wips, and that it had probably been a mistake. The work was beautiful, though.
One of the most exciting parts of the game, was when the Mariner's Moose sat in the section next to ours, and tried to knit.

Mariners lost to the Orioles 0 - 4.
