Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

OK, I just couldn't even begin to do this.

You all HAVE to go and check this out.

How do people do stuff like that? I like to think that I am an "alright" knitter, maybe even venturing into intermediate/advanced but THAT, who can compete with that? You all did catch that she is just 22 years old, right?

Proud Momma moment. . .

OK, so it didn't really have an effect on the outcome of the game and he did only face 3 batters BUT. . . . . . DS got to pitch in today's Riverdog game! I was so THRILLED for him. He walked 2 guys and had an out on a hit to first base, but still, HE PITCHED!

Knitting has OBVIOUSLY gone by the wayside in lieu of the baseball. In fact, I served as bench coach today (you gotta know that they were DESPERATE). It was fun though sitting there with the boys and getting them ready to hit.

I've yet to miss a practice or a game. The boys are all really quite sweet and very supportive of each other (although they ARE 9 -10 years old and can get a bit rambunctious at times - What is with them and picking up dirt and throwing it into their shoes and onto their pants????). I've really enjoyed this year so far and the boys (I think) look forward to seeing me there. Could it be b/c I am the most obnoxious, um I mean supportive Mom out there? tee hee! One of the boys got the first Riverdogs Homerun of the year and I was glad to be on the bench cheering him home! It was a great experience.

OK, OK, I have worked on watermelon socks (finishing up #1) and lacy leaf scarf (somewhat, not much though). Next time, knitting pix (maybe). We do have 2 more games this week y'know! ;-)

tee hee
