It was United Nations Day at the baseball game last Thursday! Our dear former au pair Steffi from Germany, Kathy from Germany, Alan from England, and Daughter #2 and I from the USA. (Kathy was an au pair at the same time Steffi was. She was with a terrible family, and ended up having to go back to Germany before her year was up.) There were many Mets fans, even though the game was in Philly. I finished and bound off Sheila's dishrag while at the game.The game was very exciting, a high-scoring affair with 21 runs scored in total. Unfortunately the final score was not in the Mets' favor. El Duque was definitely not in his best form, and Billy Wagner lost the game in the bottom of the 9th.

Sitch n Pitch
Zee dishrag, she is fini! My turn in dishrag tag came after I received a lovely red heart dishrag from Cheryl. She also sent me a cute little sheep measuring tape and some Lindt chocolates, which unfortunately melted. The chocolate managed to stay off the yarn and my pretty new dishrag. The pattern is lacy rib dishcloth, and it's free. It's one of my favorites, and looks good from either side.
