Stitch n Pitch with Yarn

In Phillies, stash on March 19, 2009 at 2:42 pm

I received my invitation.

The Philadelphia Phillies will be hosting this year’s Stitch n Pitch on Wednesday, April 29th at 7:05 pm.

I love my Phillies and I love knitting, so it’s a no-brainer for me. I’ll be there with bells on.

Also recieved from my wonderful mailman was lovely packages of yarn. He’s so good to me.

Yarn for Twin #2′s Baby Surprise Jacket
Yarn Love’s Marianne Dashwood in sport weight

I purchased the same yarn as for Twin #1 except in a different colorway. This is called Warm Tulips, a mix of reds, oranges and yellows. It’s so warm and bright; I can’t wait to cast on. I am trying to be very strict with myself and not cast on until the day we leave for London. It’s supposed to be my plane project; You know, the project that will keep me from losing my mind while stuck on a plane for 7 hours. If I start now, I might finish it en route and that would be very bad. My patience level for sitting still with nothing to do is about 5 minutes.

The green yarn was a surprise from a lovely woman I have been corresponding with over the past few months. We met in Ravelry’s Love of Letters. She hand spun the yarn and then dyed it with Kool-aide. I hope to pair it with the yellow merino wool sitting behind it. I can see a spring short-sleeved sweater (or fall, depending on how long it takes me to knit it).
