Become a Stitch N Pitch Fancomments (8) June 17th, 2008
I am a die-hard Red Sox fan and one of the big reasons that I love baseball is that it is the perfect crafting sport. Whether they win or lose I can sit back and rant about how they could have done it better with the superior satisfaction that at least I haven't wasted any time--I just completed a sweater! Seriously though, I attended my first Stitch N Pitch game last year here in Seattle and it was a complete blast. Not only was there the camaraderie of my baseball fellows, we were also bound by our love of needlework: the exqusite double-play! I loved watching that game and knitting (or embroidering, crocheting, sewing...) along with hundreds of others. It was baseball and stitching bliss.
This year The National Needle Arts Association (TNNA) has sweetened the experience by adding Minor League games into the roster and their website has been juiced up too. Not only will you find a complete listing of the Stitch N Pitch national calendar, you can sign-up for free e-newsletters with details about free patterns and giveaways (check out the fetching and free knit baseball cap pattern) and then post pics of your Stitch N Pitch creations in the gallery.
