Hiya all! SciFi Chris here, with another post for 3RC.
On Sunday, July 20, several members of 3RC headed to PNC Park for the annual Stitch-n-Pitch baseball game. It was a beautiful, sunny day, perfect for a Pirates game. The freebie totebag was very nice and filled with spiffy things. There was a skein of Hurray yarn from Berroco. It’s one of those novelty lace looking yarns, that came with two pompoms and directions for a braided scarf. There were also two skeins of yarn from Kraemer Yarns, one black and one yellow. Finally, there was a pair of knitting needles. In addition to the bags, we also got a $10 credit for food or merchandise. All of us took advantage of the credits, for food and beverages. There was a raffle for pattern books, Judy and I each won books. Since it was a knitting book and I don’t knit, I handed mine to Rebecca C. She seemed very pleased with it. Judy seemed to like the book she won, too.
Speaking of winning, the Pirates won the game. It was an awesome afternoon.
An upcoming event is the Steel Valley Yarn Crawl. They have accounts on Ravelry and Facebook. The Yarn Crawl runs from August 1 to 10th, but 3RC is planning on doing our crawling on August 2. We’ll be meeting up at Natural Stitches at 8 am, then heading out to Kathy’s Kreations in Ligonier. The order of the rest of the shops is still being planned. Here’s a link to the website of one of the participating shops, Kid Ewe Knot, that has more info on the Yarn Crawl and links to the official Ravelry and Facebook pages.
