DC Blue Sox

On our visit last week, Jersey Boy tried on the red Mock Croc socks and found that they fit him just right. Wow, these kids grow wicked fast. Those were a women's adult medium (size 7-9 shoe probably). He requested socks in his favorite color, blue. Of course there was lots of blue to choose from at MD Sheep and Wool. Here's sock 1, which I finished Sunday:This is a mostly-blue-with-just-a-bit-of-green hank of Tess's Designer Yarns Supersock and Baby. The pattern is a modified Thuja with a 56 st CO and a 7 1/2 inch leg.Here's sock 2 at the ballpark for Stitch 'n Pitch last night:
I went with Mom and Nancy from work. I had never been to RFK before to see any of the sports that have been played there over the years. I'm more of a armchair fan, and even then, not a very dedicated one. As advertised, there was stitchin, as demonstrated by Nancy (sorry for the bad photo Nancy!):
...and there was pitchin:
and a surprisingly good view of a 2-1 victory over Atlanta. Boy do those Nats fans *hate* John Smoltz (a bit of googling revealed one possible reason). Oh oh oh! There was swag too:
A totebag, patterns, needles, yarn and a copy of the ultimate yarny travel guide. Totally worth the price of admission if you ask me.

Looks like Stitch n' Pitch was a blast! The sock looks great. I've never had the pleasure of knitting with Tess yarns. But now I sure am motivated to order some for myself!
