Stitch & Pitch 2011

This past Wednesday I,  along with hundreds of other stitchers and knitters,  attended the Toronto Blue Jays vs. Seattle Mariners baseball game at the Toronto Sky Dome (now known as the Rogers Centre).

"Stitch & Pitch" is an annual event for Stitchers and Knitters.  The tickets were only $20 for the 200 level.  We all received a goody bag upon entering, and there were some wonderful prizes as well.

I met up with Darlene, Andy and Eileen before the game to grab a quick bite to eat.  Eileen was camera shy, so she volunteered to take the photo.

We all stitched even though the seating was a little tight, the temperatures were at scorcher levels, and the game was quite exciting, with 5 home runs (one of the balls even ended up in our level just a few seats to the right of us).
 During the bottom of the second inning, the Jays loaded that bases and the mariners headed to the pitcher's mound to decide what to do next.  Needless to say they had 4 runs that inning.  The Blue Jays were on fire that night, winning the game 11 to 6.

"Ace", the Blue Jays mascot also visited us to bring attention to the "Stitch & Pitch" event.  The "Go Jays Go" banner behind him was knitted.  How amazing is that.

We all had a fabulous time.  Can't wait 'til next years!!!
