Sox and Squares

I saw my first Red Sox game at Fenway last week and let me just say how much fun was that. Yes, the tickets and food are overpriced, but you can't beat the energy at a home game at the countries oldest ball park (completed in 1912). And we won! Not much knitting happening here as I am only into the toes on Jason's new socks and partially into a scarf for a friend, so instead you will get some highlights from Fenway.

On another note, my mom has started a charity project called -
*Little Bitty Balls of Yarn* (LBBY) You can check out for further details on her blog, but the basics are to knit a square or lots of squares for her to sew into a 'Love Blankie' for those going through chemo therapy. For the squares: CO 30, K 30 rows, use size 8 needles. Any type of yarn will work as long as it isn't scratchy.

Contact her at knittykatz@gmail.com for more information or where to send all those squares.

I do hope that we ca
n help her out and send some love to those going through a difficult time.

May your weeks go smoothly!

I was so glad they won the game you went to! My in-laws got us Sox tickets for our anniversary, I can't wait to go, we haven't been since the first week I was pregnant!

Fun! I love going to baseball games, even if a bratwurst costs $6.50. I just went to St. Louis' Stitch 'n Pitch last night, actually.

I would LOVE to see a game at Fenway! I'm sure I can get some bitty squares knit up.

Sounds like you had a great time! I used to love going to baseball games, but I haven't been in forever.

I like the idea your mom came up with. Maybe I can get a few in. That is, if I can get done with the shawl I've been working on forever. lol
