Stitch n’ Pitch 2014

Knitting and baseball – my two favorite things!  Last week I got to attend the annual Seattle Mariner’s Stitch n’ Pitch.


This event was first started by the Mariners 10 years ago and now many major & minor league teams around the country hold their own SnP nights!  It’s a lot of fun, even if you are not a huge baseball fan – Safeco Field, home of the Mariners, opens up their top deck area for yarn booths and other goodies and it’s so much fun to see (and buy) so much pretty yarn.
