Stitch 'n' Pitch and Wed Night Knitting


Last night was the annual Stitch 'n' Pitch at the Mariner's game.  The Eastside Stitchers were well represented with about 18 seats in the stadium.
 Yes, some of our seats were filled with non-knitting spouses or children (I brought Himes),
But, we still had a pretty large group.
The people from Noro Yarn were the featured guests, and there were all kinds of booths selling yarn, etc.  There seemed to be a pretty big section of people knitting, definitely more than the last few years.  The Mariner's played pretty badly (this has not been a good year for our team), but the weather was warm, and it was a good night for baseball.

Tonight was our regular Eastside Stitchers Meet up at Crossroads in Bellevue.  It was a pretty small group.  Maybe people were a bit "knit in public" weary after knitting at the ball game yesterday.  It's interesting though, when Eastside Stitchers first started meeting at Crossroads 4 years ago, (or started back up since there had been a group before), a group the size of tonight's group would have been a big group!  Anyway, who was there, and what were they knitting?
WireKnitter is knitting a beautiful shawl in this amazing gradient yarn.
BlueBerryMary has started (and has finished the cuffs of) a pair of fingerless mitts.
Dreamweaver19 is making good progress on her crazy baby blanket.
Wajio has started a second Rib-A-Roni hat by Jane Tanner.
and GwenS is just about on the last color of her self-striping yarn shawl.

That's it.  Small but excellent group.
