Knitting + Baseball = Socklove

Safeco Sock

Dear Sockpal,

Last night was Stitch N Pitch at Safeco Field, and although the Mariners lost, one of your socks had a good time. The other sock stayed at home. There were a bunch of great vendors at the game, including shops that are too far away from me to be convenient--Great Yarns and Churchmouse in particular. I picked up some free hometown swag for you there, giveaway items from this year's and last year's event. Although they are slightly crappy, they are also potentially useful and knitting related. I'm not going to lie to you, Sockpal, I did buy some new yarns, including some from a shop that I can go to any time I want, except on Mondays when they are closed. Anyhow, I kept away from the garlic fries, and kept your sock as clean as possible, and prevented a socknapping by E_____, who went to the game too. This weekend, I'll get your package ready, and on Thursday I will put it in the mail. And then I may have to start a pair of Bavarian Rockstars for myself.

Your Sockpal

And how could garlic not be good?

Garlic fries? Hmmmm...I don't think we sell those at Coors Field! Looks like you had fun at Stitch-n-Pitch! And, your socks are gorgeous.
