Batter Up & Don't Forget Your Knitting!

Even if there's not a Little Leaguer in your family, you've still got a chance to knit at the ballpark this summer. Last year Zoe proposed the idea of a Stitch 'N Pitch night to the management of the Green Bay Bullfrogs and they agreed. We had a rain-out the scheduled night so we didn't have the hoopla we were hoping for but we did get hats, hot dogs, and sodas in addition to having seats along the third base line with backs and arms and everything. (Photos above) It was so much fun--they're doing it again!

The Bullfrogs will play the Madison Mallards Thursday, June 16th at 7:05 PM at Joannes Stadium next to East High School in Green Bay.

The $11 Stitch 'N Pitch package (a $26 value) includes: Bullfrogs Hat, a General Admission Ticket, and a Hot Dog & Soda voucher.

To order tickets online (+$1.50 convenience charge added to all tickets purchased online) go to: www.frogsgroups.com and enter the password 'stitch.'

Or print out the form below for tickets you can pick up at the Guest Services window the night of the game.

Happy 1st Anniversary!

The May BLKG meeting to celebrate the one year anniversary of our guild was a cook-out that became a cook-in. Victoria's wonderful husband stood outside, in a downpour, under a pine tree, grilling burgers while we ate snacks and salads inside, talked about knitting, and knit.

Lucy and Terri shared exciting plans for a Yarn Crawl in October and what we hope will become an annual Knit-Away Weekend in November. I'll be devoting a post to each of them as soon as I have more info, because I know you're going to want to sign up.

April Meeting, Part 2

Last month's BLKG was well-attended by both members and guests. Vicki Jicha's Barbara Walker was colorful and interesting.

After the program Terri snapped a picture of that night's "show and tell"ers. Some lucky grandbaby will love snuggling those blankets, don't you think?

We had lots of time for comparing tales of knitting accomplishments and frustrations...

and paying dues so we don't miss a thing in the coming year.
