Knittin' at the Yard

Every year we get together with our friends Tom & Lauren to celebrate Tom and Jason's birthdays. **Happy Birthday, boys!** This year, we decided to head up to the "Yard" and watch the Orioles play the Nationals for some good interleague play. We gathered some friends, snagged the Tuesday night $8 cheap seats, and settled in for a great game. Unfortunately, the O's lost 7-4. Still, it was a gorgeous evening and we had a blast with our friends!

I convinced my good ol' guru that we should try knitting at the game. We're both working on large, wool baby blankets, so that would not suffice. We needed something smaller that didn't require a lot of attention. So, as my first "stash project" I thought we could try a lacy headband from Knit Picks.
So, we knitted and knitted and knitted...all the while yelling, screaming, and celebrating for the few great plays that the O's managed to squeak out. We were hoping that the camera scanning the crowd would show us up on the jumbotron, but no. I even kept knitting, while standing and singing during the 7th inning stretch!!!! But still, no jumbotron debut.

I think we probably each got about half of a headbead done *she in green, me in blue* by the end of the 7th inning. Since the O's were way behind, we all decided to duck out at that time and head home. I really like this "stash project" because it's so portable and I can work on it anywhere. Plus I have some lovely colors in my stash that I would love to use up. Who knows, maybe I'll make one for everyone I know!!!

We're gonna try to catch the O's vs Yankee's game on the 26th, so maybe we'll be able to do some more knittin' at the Yard! Hopefully the O's will pull out a win the next time...after all, it will be the Yankees!!

Those headbands are very hip! Great job! May the BFB request one in green?
