Stitch N’ Pitch

We’ve all heard of Stitch ‘n Bitch. In fact, these knitting and crocheting get togethers have become something of a phenomenon in the UK, gaining popularity during the dark times of the recession when entertainment was not quite as affordable as it once was. However, you can generally trust the Americans to take an idea and crank it up a notch or two which in this case – and to my utter delight – appears to have resulted in Stitch N’ Pitch.

This movement apparently encompasses two great American pastimes – needlearts and baseball. People pick up their thread, wool and tapestry and head off to ballgames up and down the country, with interest also seeming to be growing worldwide. Love it!
