  • I hope Hubby is back in form quickly! Lack of childcare when one is trying to leave town is a bummer. I can imagine the *mixed emotions* one might have while being nabbed off the plane…
    I love Wenlan Chia’s stuff; I just wish I were half my size, so I could wear it!

  • Holy MAN, do the Mets know how to throw a Stitch & Pitch or what?! The Reds need to take some lessons from y’all. Our S&P was considerably less stitchy. Half-price seats (which is all we got) were terrific, but I could’ve used a ball signed by nine knitting authors! 🙂
    Hope Hubby’s feeling better soon!

  • hubby is not tour jours gai
    gosh if we all could visit
    do you think mayor bloomberg
    would have to call out the riot squad
    life on the internet

  • The thing is, all those amazing things Lily Chin made? It’s LILY. Nothing she does with yarn surprises me anymore. (Amazes me, yes, strikes me dead from awe, maybe, but not surprises.)
    Glad you had fun at the game, and best wishes for Hubby’s recovery.

  • Hope your husband gets well soon.
    Thanks for the photos of the event. I want the pattern for the Lily Chin baseball jersey!

  • Best to Hubbo! Sorry I missed the S-n-P, sorry you missed Chicago, but that Mayor Mike, he’s a grand slam. Hope Hubby gets a bill of better-than-ever health real soon.

  • Wow. Now I am truly sorry that I couldn’t make the stitch ‘n pitch (even more than before) but I did watch the end of the game. Hope all is well with the husband. I think being called off the plane by EMS would have given me my very own heart attack.

  • Wow, great post! So much yarn to go with baseball! I used to take my knitting to the games, too, way back in the 80’s. DH used to work for the Mets. Nostalgia rules.
    Hope your DH is feeling much better.

  • Oh my gosh, Kay – I hope your hubby is much better and well on his way to completely A-OK. And I hope you’ve recovered from YOUR experience! Yikes.
    And here I’ve been imagining you and Ann having a thoroughly wonderful and exciting time, whilst all citizens of MDK Blogland wait patiently to hear the colorful tidbits from your Chicago trip…
    Thanks for taking the time to update us all and share the Mets photos. Looking forward to Ann’s report on Chicago 🙂

  • Tyler Charles should know that $!&@ his mom reads is f-+&:@$ awesome !$=+!
    And does Lily Chin do nothing but knit all day every day?? Does she knit in the shower?? In her sleep?? Who the hell knits A WHOLE FREAKING OUTFIT for ONE DAY? Lordy!
    hope that your man is home soon and well enough to take some wrath for missing Chicago! Tell him the 17th must remain open!
    please ignore the re after this sentence. cell phones are dumb sometimes. re

  • he did WHAT? i think if the reason for the trip to the hospital was not life-threatening, and my husband did that to me, id make sure his reason for remaining in the hospital was life-threatening! but im glad yours is going to be all right. sorry about the cancelled trip though. hope to see you at Rhinebeck!

  • Best wishes for your husband — and yourself. Being pulled off the plane by emergency personnel of any sort …! Oy. I’d have required a defibrillator.
    And, on another note: AAAAAAAAAAA! I was *at* the Stitch’n’Pitch game, having bought the tix months in advance, and they put us in the BLUE seats. All the knitting was two levels up! In the RED seats! No wonder we couldn’t find any other knitters. Sigh.
    At least it was a great game.

  • Reading this $%^& today -yeah!– and every day,
    and sending good mental energy, hub’wise
    and Kay’wise.
    (Would “reading this $%^&” look good on the
    Margaret sweater or what?)

  • Oh, my. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I can’t imagine the heart attack I’d have at getting pulled off a plane.

  • Did Lily knit (or crochet) the banner too!!!!!!?
    The jersey was cool–but the pants made the whole ensemble WAY impressive.
    Sounds like a ball was had by all.

  • keep on with that good %?&$.

  • Wow, I’m in the middle of a birthday do-over and you have gotten me off to a fantastic start with this post. I will stop bad-mouthing the Mets for a bit. Thank you for the great photographs! Lily Chin made some awesomeness right there. And Wenlan Chia’s ensemble must be mine. Anyway. Very, very glad your hubby is OK. I would have freaked out, getting pulled off of the plane.

  • Hope Hubby recoups quickly.
    S-n-P looked awesome. I know Lily has had the speed crocheting record, but she must not be a slouch with the knitting needles either. Wow!
    Sorry you missed Chicago, hope you can make it to Portland. Geez, that’s coming up. I need to get my A4A afghan off the crochet hook and in the mail so I can make a bottle topper or two. (I’m having a love-hate relationship with my afghan.)

  • I hope your hubby gets a clean bill of health soon. Glad it’s more annoying than serious, but still.
    And I give Tyler a lot of credit for even paying attention to what his mom reads. I hope he doesn’t tell her about the photo and she just brings up your post and is shocked to see her son standing there!

  • Work sucks. I so would have been there, but I had a bailout bill to cover.
    Lily has hit new levels of awesomeness with her baseball uniform — I need a Red Sox jersey, stat!

  • hope it wasn’t a mountain biking accident!

  • Tyler Charles’ mom is probably going to be embarrassed that her son said, “$%^&” in front of you, but I’ll bet she’ll be pleased as punch that his picture is on your blog!
    Good thoughts for your husband’s speedy recovery.

  • You missed Chicago?! Oh man!
    Speaking of man, I hope yours is back on his feet soon. And that there aren’t any snags to prevent you from making it to Rhinebeck.

  • Hey no fair! Where was all the signing stuff going on??? I didn’t see it and I didn’t know it was there or I for sure would have come searching for autographs.
