Stitch N Pitch with the Sacramento River Cats!

Stitch N Pitch May 5, 2009

Take me out to the ball game!

Yes, tonight was Stitch N Pitch with the Sacramento River Cats at Raley Field. This wonderful event by TNNA (The National Needle Arts Association) is a fun way of combining two great American past times, baseball and the needle arts.

So tonight, the Stockinettes knit in public and cheered on our local minor league team (Triple A affiliate of the Oakland A's) the Sacramento River Cats vs. the Reno Aces. Friends, husbands and family members even joined in on the fun.

Here are a few photos to show you how much we fun had knitting tonight at Raley Field.
