On my way to meet a friend at the subway, I passed a school in the neighborhood, and thought this yarn-bombing on the railing of the access ramp into the school building was pretty.
Then, while waiting for the friend, I was standing near the subway entrance next to one of the clinics of the Philadelphia Dept of Public Health. Where I noticed for the first time ever a uniquely named garden behind the fence surrounding the parking lot.
If you look closely, you can see that the little plaque says, "STD Garden." There are "Chlamydia Tomato", "Hepatitis Pepper," and "HIV Tomato" markers, among other similarly-named plants. It was ... interesting ...
Anyway, I was the last one to get to the park, so of course I had to see this picture, which was supposed to indicate that they waited so long, one had nearly starved to death.
But eventually we were all there, and ready to go inside. (I'm the one in the red shirt wearing sunglasses.)
And proceeded to take some more ridiculous photos.
The giveaway this year was a project bag, and I for one really like it!
We really lucked out, the weather was just perfect, which is not something that usually is the case in late August in Philadelphia. There were lots of other knitters, crocheters, embroiderers, etc. in our section, and we were a LOUD bunch if nothing else. :-)
This is the fourth time I've gone to Stitch 'n Pitch, and each time has been more fun than the last. In my dream world, I'd love to go to a Pittsburgh Pirates Stitch 'n Pitch too, but like I said, that is my dream world. In the meantime, I'm more than happy to see the Phillies, and though it's better when they win, just going to a game is enjoyable in itself.
Even if you are not a baseball fan, if you go with a bunch of friends, I can pretty much guarantee that you'll have a good time.
