Stitch N' Pitch

It was hot--Africa hot.

This was my original seat. Faces have been obscured to protect the nice folks on either side of me, but the problem should be fairly obvious.

After the excitement of the ten-run fifth inning, I realized I was doubled over with my elbows on my knees, looking and sweating for all the world like I had a bad case of the trots. We were so wedged in I wasn't even sure if it was my own sweat I was feeling.

Fortunately, the heat had driven off a lot of less intrepid fans, so I moved up a few rows and stretched out.

The haul (plus 2 other skeins of yarn that I already stashed):

Work accomplished:

Go Cards!

Hey Deborah, I saw your comment over on my blog, so I came over to answer.

The heel is a quite straightforward short-row heel, done in garter stitch instead of stockinette. It's cool because you don't have to mess with picking up wraps, plus it's extra thick and squishy.

On that particular sock, there's also a small gusset after the heel, as it decreased 8 or 10 stitches for the foot.

You must have been fairly close to where I was sitting. I was on the other side of that same section of seats.

The fifth inning certainly was exciting, wasn't it?
