It was a beautiful evening as fans filled Safeco Field to watch the Seattle Mariners take on the Texas Rangers. Equipped with yarn, needles, and charisma, hundreds of knitters filled the upper deck for Seattle’s 6th Annual Stitch ‘n Pitch!
The 300 level of Safeco Field was turned into a temporary knit shop as knitters walked between dozens of booths set up by local yarn stores, designers, and knitting organizations. In addition to the great shopping that was available, each Stitch ‘n Pitch participant received a limited edition Mariner Moose Bobble head covered in yarn!
Many Skacel employees along with their family and friends attended. A few lucky employees were sitting in the right row, as their row was selected for a special “goody bag” filled with pattern books, roving, yarn, and knitting accessories.
Famous knitter and author, Debbie Bliss, threw out the first (and probably most exciting pitch) of the game, as the Mariners lost 0-6. Regardless of the score, though, the crowd was great, the knitting was great, and the 2010 Mariner’s Stitch ‘n Pitch was once again a great event, and Skacel would like to thank everyone who participated!
