Stitch N’ Pitch is coming up this weekend! Believe it or not, I’m going to be attending for the first time.

The Mets/Nationals game this Sunday September 14th marks the 8th annual Stitch N’ Pitch. The event is hosted by the New York Mets and Metropolitan Hospitality and sponsored by Lion Brand Yarn Company. Along with a themed Mrs. Mets plush, knitters and crocheters will be given Lion Brand yarn to make squares for Warm Up America. BYO needles and hooks! We’re going to be making for a good cause! Warm Up America collects handmade items for many social services across the country. 

Stitch N' Pitch at Citi Field

Admittedly, I am not a big sports fan but I do love to hang out with knitters while we’re in our element. I’m going to brush up on my baseball lingo! I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon! 

Pick up your tickets to the ball game here. We’ll be at Citi Field on Sunday! Don’t forget to bring your needles!

Will you join us? Who are you routing for?

Warm Up America!

Written by Sarah. Posted in knits

Lion Brand Yarn Studio is one of my favorite yarn stores in Manhattan. I’ve been making a lot of trips there with the holidays coming up. It’s kind of unavoidable this time of year. Ending tomorrow is their Warm Up America donation. I made a few 7″x9″ which will be turned into an afghan that will be donated to Warm Up America. I love donating like this because it not only feels great to give but it’s a wonderful stash buster. I’ve got yarn all over my tiny apartment and Jon’s!

And, on top of all that, LBY Studio is giving 20% off coupons to everyone that donates squares. So, of course, I had to buy a few (read: a ton) balls of angora merino for some holiday projects I’ve got going on.

Join Lion Brand on December 12th for their Joining Party. Help put all of the afghans together and score a 20% off coupon!
