The Durham Bulls had a very good week this week.
In fact, they swept a four game series against the Gwinnett Braves, and I was on hand for three of those four games.
My renewed interest in baseball began innocently enough at a Stitch N’ Pitch game in June of 2014.
I had purchased my ticket a local yarn shop and then sat with a few of my crochet friends. I don’t remember who won the game, but I remember that I won two raffle prizes: four tickets to the Zoo in Asheboro, North Carolina, and two skeins of mohair that I traded for a jar of buttons.
Tonight, however, was not a Stitch N’ Pitch game so there were no yarn prizes or swag bags, but that did not stop me from enjoying myself, as I had come prepared with a bag full of yarn and an assortment of hooks.
But truth be told, the Bulls winning ways are impacting my crochet production. Instead of getting work done on my crochet, I find myself watching long swaths of the game.
When the Bulls are up, I promise myself I will crochet more when the opposing team is at bat, and when the opposing team is up, I find myself unable to look away. What, I wonder, will happen to the Bulls if I do not keep my eyes trained on their opponent?
But despite the Bulls riveting winning streak, I have managed to get some work done.
First I crocheted a second ear for my second scrap cat:
With the two scrappy ears done, I wove in the interior ends and got scrap cat the second a face:
and then I took a photo of all of the pieces I had done so far:
One thing I did not managed to work out is what exactly I want to do about that one bare patch on the back of the cat:
This week, the Bulls are on the road, and while I am sorry I won’t get to see their games, I am committing to crocheting every possible moment, so that when they return, I will not only have finished Scrap Cat 2, but I will be on to whatever is next.
