summertime and the knitting is easy

I pulled out my new skein of Socks That Rock and started a super-easy sock, and it turns out that a ribbed sock was exactly what I wanted to knit right now. It was great to have on hand during last week's convention-watching, and hopefully I'll get to work on the second one during this week's speechifying. (These two weeks are really going to negatively effect global warming - such hot air coming out of Denver and the Twin Cities!)

Hopefully I can finish up the toe this afternoon, and get the new one cast on before book club tonight. It's only my second time with this group, but I hope that they won't mind if I knit.

This weekend we are going to Seattle to see the Yankees play the Mariners at Safeco Field. We are waaaaaay up in the top deck, so it should be safe to knit during the game. We've got Saturday night and Sunday afternoon tickets, which is a lot of baseball over the span of 24 hours. Will I still be working on these socks next weekend?

How could anyone mind if you knit?

How was the game? I sure wish I could have been there with you. Hubby would've been cheering for the Yankees and I would've been cheering for the Mariners.

I have stitch n pitch tickets to the LA Angels game Sunday and they play the Mariners. I've died and gone to heaven. At least I think the top deck seats are in the clouds so it could be a bit like heaven. ;-)
