Stitch n' Pitch '07

I went to Stitch n' Pitch again this year. This year in my official capacity at Seattle Knitters Guild President. I had to get to Safeco at 4(!). The parking instructions I was given were not very clear and after discussing it with some security guys they parked me in the VIP area. I was next to the media and players' wives cars. I entered a security area and was ushered under the stadium into an elevator and popped out in the middle of all the SnP stuff. I was just there to hand out newsletters, answer questions about the Guild and give knitting help. I was lucky to have a table on Lookout Landing. It was shady, had a view of the field and was next to the Dixie's BBQ stand.

I loved all the signs this woman brought with her. I wonder if she got on camera with them.

Deb, from Village Yarn & Tea, was next to me spinning on her new Louet Victoria wheel. This alcohol enforcement guy was fascinated.

I didn't watch any of the game. I knit and chatted with people. I had kettle corn (the most important part of the game for me). When the game was winding down I made a quick getaway back to my VIP parking spot and was practically ushered on to I-5 by the police. It took me 11 minutes from the moment I turned on my engine until I got to my front door. I was laughing the whole way home.
