We Stitched While They Pitched!

Last night Leftcoast and I went to Stitch N Pitch '08 at AT&T Park in San Francisco. While the smart knitters were in line to get Malabrigo, LC and I were busy stuffing our faces with hot dogs and beer so we missed out but did get some free silk yarn and the snazzy and free Stitch N Pitch ball caps:



All my fans were there:


But highlight of the evening was meeting up with Carrieknits!


I got to grill her all about the Snowboarder and her ginormous Blue Moon Fiber Arts collection and she brought me a surprise treat from her recent trip to Blue Moon Fiber Arts! Squee!
It's pink in honor of my 3Day walking and the colorway is called "Hot Flash" and boy does that describe me these days! After hearing how much fun Sock Camp is I have to save my pennies and find a way to make it there next year.

Thank you Carrie!!

Only in San Francisco does one need a hot chocolate in the middle of July. Lucky us--it was Ghiradelli and delicious!

The Bay Area is lucky enough to have two major league teams so I might have to go to the Oakland A's Stitch N Pitch in September...
