Stitch n Pitch wrapup

Here's my version of the event, and I'm sticking to it.

z had swimming lessons at 5pm, so I packed everything up and off we went to pick up the boy and go to the class. (he's doing quite well learning, btw. Very close to swimming for real). z&a's dad arrived at 5:40pm to take them, and off I went.

Met up w/ the ladies at the Ferry terminal, 'cause there's no better way getting to the game**
It's just too bad you can't use discount coupons for the game rides, oh, well.

It was enjoyable getting to the ball park, and the fact that the boat dropped you off at the stadium, well, that was purty cool. We picked up our goody bags, only to find that we were missing a few items. The folks were super accommodating and when I wanted a different pattern, the guy let me look through the various bags to swap the pattern.

Garlic fries were delicious, and the chicken, not too impressed (I've had numerous tastings with z 'cause that's one of his favorite food groups -- chicken nuggets). The game? Oh, yes, the game. Not too much happened, then our group decided to leave and as we're leaving, yep, you guessed it, THAT's when they scored.

So, long story long is that we sat in line for a really long time because the game went into extra innings and we were tired and cold by the time we got back to the island. And I just talked to one of our group and they got a flat tire, so they didn't get home until 3am! Brutal.

What did I bring to work on?
1)the pattern and one ball of yarn for Wicked
2)MS3 yarn and forgot the pattern

What did I actually work on?
I purled a row for MS3 and since I forgot the pattern, it was not meant to be.
I finished one bib in Giant's orange and started another one. So yay, I had an almost FO.

Here's the loot:

Pretty cool! Can't imagine the poor gal who got home at 3am. UGH!

It was lots of fun. I'm going to try to go to the Oakland A's game. At least this one is on a Sunday afternoon.
