Crocheting at Citi Field

I don’t know about you but I bring my crocheting with me pretty much everywhere! Today, my husband and I ventured to Citi Field (Home of the NY Mets) for the first time today. Between the trip in and the game, there was plenty of time to stitch!

Once we got there, I was amazed at how beautiful and clean the stadium was. We got to our seats in the 417 section and voila…. Comfy seats perfect for stitching! Even better they installed yarn holders for our yarn cakes ! Really, I’m serious! Ok they were beverage dispensers but the best part was my yarn cake of Green Mountain Spinnery’s Sylvan Spirit fit perfectly in the holder allowing for my to hook and watch the game without my yarn going for a ride and bothering serious game watchers!

So Citi Field was made for stitchers and baseball fans alike! It was a win win day. A great baseball game and a great stitching game! Let’s go Mets!
