Those of you who know me in real life or online know that I loathe baseball. I'd rather watch paint dry. However, I do love slip stitch knitting. And I love knitting hats. And I love supporting success of any kind in my City. I found a stitch pattern in one of my plethora of stitchionaries, and thought to myself, "You know, if you work this in alternate directions it will make a herringbone pattern." And then after watching an episode of White Collar - the one where Neal steals a baseball and Peter reveals his baseball-loving past - I said to myself (outloud), "You know, if you use white yarn with the contrast color red, it will look like a baseball." And I said, "If you hurry you can whip this up into a hat for the 2014 baseball season opening day, and people will think you're part of the cool kids." So I did, and the Baseball Beanie was born.www.halosofhope.org before we're out of the running, and ask for the coupon code. (The pattern is always available for purchase at .
