Stitch N Pitch with the River Cats!

Michele, Lorna & Sheila
with their River Cats Stitch N Pitch totes!

Take me out to the ball game!

I went to my first Stitch N Pitch game Tuesday night at Raley Field. Our minor league team the Sacramento River Cats (Triple A affiliate of the Oakland A's) played the Reno Aces.

Stitch N Pitch is sponsored by the TNNA (The National Needle Arts Assoc.) and combines two great all American past and knitting!

My knitting guild the Camellia City Stockinettes had a section for members to sit together. There was even a special Stitch N Pitch tote bag with an adorable baby hat pattern from, our very own, Lorna Miser. Lorna also threw out the first pitch...a baseball she had covered in purple yarn!

Sheila and a knitter's view of Home Plate!
(Yes, she is wearing her knit fish hat!)

The River Cats may have lost but we all had a great time knitting away! Even husbands and family members joined us for the fun. We had great seats, too! Thank you Cindi from the Stockinettes for organizing this fun event for us!

Baseball season is just starting so there are plenty of Stitch N Pitch games coming up for both the major and minor leagues. Check out the Stitch N Pitch calendar for a game near you...and don't forget to bring your knitting!
