Plus: Everyone for Stitch N Pitch got a Stitch N Pitch bag-a great bag!
And what is a Stitch N Pitch event with out yarn?
As a volunteer, I helped –with a great crew-- to packed over 200 bags with Lion Brand HomeTown-(San Diego Blue, and Syracuse Orange—or as we saw the colors Mets Blue or Orange) with yarn and hooks (in under 1 hour!)
But at the end of the day, what I went home with was the Tahki/Stacy Charles cotton --given a choice of chunky or fine, well for me, fine (not really fine—about DK weight ) wins every time. (another crew packed those bags)
Still as lovely as all the loots is—The best part of the day was the people.
First the Stars--
Libby—from TNNA—An organizer, and host who worked tirelessly.(she never stood still and all my photos of her are a blur!)
Stacy Charles—a gentleman of the first order--(standing next to Jessica, from Vogue knitting) It wasn't till the crochet event was over that I realized who he was!
Debbie Norville (here in the middle of the event, giving a demo on how to crochet.)
(Behind the camera for several shots—and unseen—Mike Devessa, from Lion Brand (who trudged from NJ for the event--Thank you Mike, for helping me with some photo's!)
The final count? I am not sure—I heard 410—but it could be a few more-Enough to qualify (350 are needed to qualify) More than enough to make it a Guinness Book of World Record's record setting event.
Oh, yeah, the Mets won, 6-1 over the Marlins.
(and I went home exhausted!)
