Last Sunday (yeah, I’m *that* behind with my posts), a couple 200 knitters showed up to watch the Rangers play ball and get their knit on. (The knitters, not the Texas Rangers. Although I would’ve liked to see them try to knit. But I’m odd like that.)

Was it a coincidence, a fluke? Was some evil scrapbooking villain controlling our collective yarn minds? Does ‘America’s favorite past time’ hold the secret to yarn-overs and cabling?

While all really… well, STOOPID questions; No. It was the fabulous Stitch n’ Pitch day at the Texas Rangers game!

Yep, you heard me right. And it was fun, ta’ boot!

It’s been a long while, but I do have knitting updates for you.

A little bit here, a tad more there… nothing too exciting, but enough to share with y’all.

Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything knitting related. I have been knitting though, and getting quite a few Finished Objects (FO). I’ve just been too lazy to take pix or post. But I’m here to take back my knitting blog!

Stand back, world!

Simple Pleasures

Posted by Nanc

… and Hershey® Caramel Kisses! oh, sweet heaven – life is good!

I finally made it to the Woolie Ewe and what glorious site that was! Yarn, yarn and more yarn – all fibers, colors and textures. Yum!

While I was there, I picked up Rowan® Big Wool and Lind 60&reg Tondo to make a felted purse. Some Crystal Palace® Cotton Chenille wanted to come home with me to become the Bloom Flower Washcloth from Weekend Knitting. And I couldn’t resist a ball each of Gedifra® Shakira and GGH® Boboli in similar fern colors. What they’ll become is a surprise.

Also in my basket was a Clover® Bamboo Circs US#15 and Chibi finishing needles. Plus later today, my Bonez got me the Spring/Summer issue of Vogue Knitting International. (Such a sweetie.)

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo AND my birthday month, Bonez and I went out to eat at El Fenix (we hit the geriatric “rush”) and saw ‘Mean Girls’. Yay – mean girls! Yay – the Tina Fey!

Washcloth #3

Posted by Nanc

True to her word, Ang gave me some more cotton yarn in new (to me) and exciting colors. This will allow me to keep on making washcloths without purchasing any more yarn!

Can’t you just feel the excitement? It’s nearly tangible; this great energy rush all for a washcloth. (Well, at least the sarcasm is tangible.)

Motivation

Posted by Nanc

I don’t know why I skipped past the washcloths in my knitting journey. I mean, I made the requisite coasters and bookmarks. Washcloths were the next stop before scarves. (And I’m still there, it seems.) For whatever reason, I did and now I find myself backtracking.
