so tired, must blog, must blog, so tired ....

i'm not sure how, but somehow i ended up on the committee that is organizing Stitch 'N Pitch in Toronto. I'm such a loner, i've never been a 'committee' person. a man called me a week ago from Westminster Fibers and said something about supporting the event and meeting the Blue Jays. I figure sure, why not, sounds like something different to break up the week, the next day i get an e-mail with an 'Agenda', a list of 'committee' members and a request for us to 'think outside the box'. how did i get into this? i don't know. but i figure it'll still break up the week, so i go. now i'm neck deep. tomorrow morning i have to go to Mississauga at Coats & Clark for another meeting, we're car pooling, meeting at the spinrite offices.

i thought all day yesterday and i worked hard all day today compiling contact lists, spreading the word online, creating a blog, facebook group, etc. the jays are handing out tote bags and i want to get lots & lots of great freebies from all the distributors to stuff in there! i also want to collaborate with a charity, like Streetknit and Afghans for Afghans. It would be great if people would knit squares while they are at the game and donate them to make blankets for the charities. it could be like a great big knit along!

i think i'm going to be the one to make a huge scarf for the Jays mascot. i wonder what it's measurements are? i'm pooped just thinking about it.

did you want tickets? you can get them at the store (then we can all sit together), or here's the
Jays' Stitch 'N Pitch page.

Hmm, too bad I don't really like baseball...

Haley - if you want to knit the scarf in sections and graft it together, I'd be happy to pitch in. Hee hee! I said "pitch in". Snort. This is what comes of living with a baseball-addicted compulsive-punster. Must go watch the end of the All Star game!

i've never been a baseball fan either, but i think tha's OK because there's going to be a lot of Stitching & Bitching going on!
