Brooklyn Cyclones: Stitch n Pitch night

Hey, a blog post! Sorry that’s it’s been a while. I have several entries I want to post in the next month or so.

The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA) organizes Stitch n Pitch events at the Major League Baseball level. The purpose is to promote the fiber arts (knitting, crochet, needlework, etc) while enjoying a baseball game. There is an upcoming Stitch n Pitch at Mets game in September.

Last night I attended a Stitch n Pitch event (organized by the Brooklyn Knit and Crochet Guild) at the Brooklyn Cyclones game. The Cyclones are a minor affiliate of the New York Mets. It was a nice, cool summer night in Coney Island with low lying clouds and a beautiful sunset.

We had amazing seats, to the right of home plate:

During the game I took a walk around the ballpark and got a gorgeous picture of the Parachute Jump tower:

I believe this used to be a real ride but has been discontinued ( I guess to safety reason, lol).

I enjoyed Nathan’s French fries, popcorn, and mini melt ice cream in the flavor “Cotton Candy”. And yes I did knit:

It’s my annual “no thinking required” project for summer knitting. Using two skeins of sock yarn I’m knitting in the round to create a double thick scarf for the winter. It has quite a ways to go.

By the way, the home team won. The Cyclones were playing the Vermont Lake Monsters (?) and I believe the score was 7-2. I usually pay close attention to baseball games but my knitting distracted me.

The Guild has been doing some really fun events and the members are friendly. If you are in the New York Area consider joining for a year to see what it’s like. Our next meeting is yarn swap.
