Knitting and The Giants

Little is more exciting to me than the yearly combination of two of my greatest loves: knitting and San Francisco Giants baseball. Last year's Stitch and Pitch event was sadly missed, so I had been looking forward to meeting up with my knitting gals for Monday's game for several months.

Sophy, Erica, and Brenda...



This is what summer nights at the ballpark look like here...



Sophy and I both kinneared this girl wearing matching (and gorgeous) Koolhaas, Fetching, and scarf (see woman in turquoise hat)...



And this? This is Brenda's knitting and my knitting with Tim Lincecum pitching a COMPLETE GAME WITH FIFTEEN STRIKEOUTS!!



On the way home, we stopped at Sophy's office to say hello to the adorable sheep stuffie and animatronic pony. Yes, Sophy's office has an animatronic pony. Tell me you don't want to work there.



We ate a lot, laughed a lot, knit a little, and the Giants won. A perfect evening if you ask me!

Looks like a fabulous time! Wow, it must have been chilly for everyone to be decked out in handknits like that.
