My Mariner Scarf

As most of Seattle knows, the Seattle Mariners are not doing well this season. It has been hard on the fans. There was so much hope going into this season. Unfortunately the team has not lived up to those hopes.

I still enjoy going to the games. In fact I will be going to tonight's game.

On a somewhat related topic, when I retired I received some very kind and generous retirement celebration gifts(more posts to come on those). One was from Michale. She knew I have been wanting to knit the Chevron scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts(currently 1273 projects in Ravelry). Michale knit this for me because she knew I have been wanting to knit this but knew I would not be getting to knitting it any time soon.

I wore this scarf at the game this past Saturday night when we played the Washington Nationals...and lost. Here is a photo of me wearing my scarf sitting with my mother-in-law Evie.



I'll surely be wearing it tonight. Currently it is cool out and raining. Will summer ever arrive in Seattle?

I grew up in Seattle - till I was in my 20's and come back every couple of years to visit my family. Is your scarf Mariner's colours? I bought some of it (2 ply in Mariner's and Husky"s colours) when I was last in Seattle but I don't want to knit socks with it. A scarf would be perfect. I'll look on Ravelry. Oh, I found you because I googled Seattle and knitting and you came up. Any chance I can get to be a little closer to home in the wwwworld - and I have really enjoyed reading your blog.

So in such a disheartening season, do you plan to attend Stitch n' Pitch?

Dear Retired Personage! I have been mostly outta town for the last couple weeks so a HUGE congratz to you for retiring. The first year is giddy - you know you deserve it but you can't quite get over it and are waiting for the other shoe to drop - but there's no shoe! I'm thrilled for you and look forward to "retirement" chat. Best regards from another retiree...
