Mariner's Stitch n Pitch.....

We survived! Our seats were the next to last row in the highest level! As I said, I am terrified of heights, but will wonders never cease? It was a GREAT place to sit. We could actually *see* the game and we had some great knitters sitting around us! This was taken about an hour before game time. When Bunni went to find our seats and kept going up and up and up and up, I started to wonder if I would just spend my time hanging out in the shop area....haha

It was soooooo much fun. There were a lot of stores set up there so we got a chance to add to the yarn stash!
The first pitch was thrown by a knitter and instead of a baseball, she threw a ball of yarn. :)

I decided to be kind in showing our presence at the game.

Here's Bunni:

And Lauri:

And me:

This is what happens when you are screaming for the Mariner's and not paying attention to what you are doing:

I knit off the second needle and it fell free into my lap and the sock was on one crazy twisted single needle.

Of course, I had to get a picture of my sock in progress with Ichiro! This just happened to be his first hit of the night!

and a picture of him doing his famous pre-batting routine:

We also got a close-up view of the Mariner Moose:

Next year we are definitely going to try to get together a big group of people to go with us!

That is certainly high up!!

Now please excuse this Aussies ignorance but what on earth is Stitch n Pitch. I have been reading it on other blogs also. Okay it is obviously a baseball game but did somebody organise it for knitters??

Looks like a lot of fun.

Looks like you all had a blast!!! Stadiums can be a little scary when it is soooo steep and not a lot of room to walk or climb...hehe Ü
