Last week was the third annual Stitch N’ Pitch event, which was held at the New York Mets’ new Citi Field. For those of you who haven’t yet visited the field, it is very impressive. It was a beautiful night for baseball, yarn, and a good time. There were over 500 knitters and crocheters who came out for a night of fun and excitement. We were represented on the field before the game, on the jumbo-tron, and even spoken about on the Mets broadcast. It was nice to see how many people, especially men, in the stands knitting and crocheting. Even though the Mets didn’t win, a great time was had by all. I am very proud to be a part of this committee that unites yarn lovers from all over the tri-state area. On behalf of the entire Stitch N’ Pitch committee, I would like to thank everyone who came out and supported us!
