Sponsored by The National Needle Arts Association, the nationwide Stitch 'N Pitch brings together baseball and needle arts. Yarn vendors come to the baseball stadiums while knitters, crocheters, and quilters enjoy the game and partake in their favorite crafts.
The gals from Stitch 'N Bitch Madison braved the nasty wind and tailgated like champs before the game:
|Kat, Andrea, Yours Truly, and Pat in full Sith Lord getup.|
Andrea is rocking the death stare.
Despite the weather, we were in it to have a good time:
|Pat shows off her 'I love to crochet at baseball games' shirt.|
After eating dinner in a parking lot for the second time in my life (last year's Stitch 'N Pitch being the first), we grabbed our tickets and headed to Miller Park.
|We bonded over our shared hobby|
(note that I have a hand injury and have taken up finger knitting).
|But then, he got a little naughty!|
|Anne C. managed to mellow him out.|
Oh, and they dressed alike.

|Andrea, Anne L., Kat, and Porter.|
|This Brewers fan was pouty when the A's took the lead.|
|We aimed to pretend to slide down the glove,|
but in fact, we WERE sliding down the glove.
|Running with the Polish, Italian, and German sausages.|
|Fist-bumping the Mexican and American sausages.|

Note: the smiling guy in the top right corner is our new friend, Tom.
He wasn't part of our group, but really wanted to be in the photo.
