Stitch 'N Pitch

We had a lovely time at the 5th Annual Milwaukee Brewers Stitch 'N Pitch on July 21st, 2011 at Miller Park.  Our memento is a fabulous knitting Chorizo bobblehead. I love the ball of yarn in his sombrero!
Here's a quick rundown of the event...

We headed to Milwaukee at 2 pm.  The weather and roads were typical Wisconsin with rain, sun, more rain, more sun and plenty of road construction.
 This is our group (left to right: Rachael, Caleb, Mike, and Alisa). 
Once in Miller park the we checked out the vendors, registered for door prizes and collected the above bobblehead.
Firefly Fibers donated a kit for Spud & Chloe's Happily Ever After Hat and Mitts set in retro Brewers colors.  I hope the recipient was happy with their prize!
After that, Rachael and I spent some time knitting. 
 The sausages raced!  Sorry for the blurry photo, they were so fast I almost missed them entirely!
 And our Milwaukee Brewers won!  Go Brew Crew!

If you haven't attended this event in the past and like baseball, I strongly encourage you to attend next year!  It's a lot of fun!

Happy Knitting!
