Thanks to Coveted Yarn for sponsoring the yarn!  Did you know Coveted Yarn has moved from East Main Street To The lower level of Shaws Plaza on Eastern Ave.

On the needles…  How does cashmere sound??? Charcoal?


Moving right along… Neckband done… Division for back, front and sleeves…

Here’s the original offer which Cindy took me up on-

I’d like a lg mens merino wool sweater in the style above minus the Charlie Brown pattern color heather grey or charcoal.  Any knitters up for it?  Your picture on the blog and the yarn shop that wants to donate the yarn will get my time posting about the process.

Here’s where I saw the pattern but you might have a classic crew neck sweater pattern we could look at too.


The North Shore Navigators of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) have made a concerted effort to give back to surrounding communities since the team moved to Lynn three years ago.
This upcoming summer, the organization will continue its 50/50 Town Night program which benefits local organizations in surrounding North Shore area cities and towns. The program provides an organization the opportunity to sell tickets to a game and receive half the proceeds from its sales. The team’s goal is to help raise $100,000 for surrounding community organizations in 2011.
The team’s 6:15 p.m. contest on July 1 against the Sanford Mainers will serve as ‘Gloucester Night’, as the Gloucester Little League will serve as the program’s beneficiary. If you wish to sell or purchase tickets, please notify league contact Cindy Rich at (978) 546-3006 or cindyrich@verizon.net.
“The Navigators as an organization are excited and proud to have the opportunity to give back to the immediate area,” said team owner Tim Haley. “It is an extension of our goal to become part of the fabric of the North Shore community.”
The organization is also currently seeking a sponsor to provide t-shirts for the 300 little league members in attendance at the game.
Each of the team’s home games this season will support at least one local organization in the nearby community. The partnership also calls for community representatives to throw out the first pitch, sing the national anthem, and perform other ceremonial ballpark tasks.
The Navigators, who won the NECBL championship last year, will play 21 games at Lynn’s Fraser Field this summer and will also host the 2011 NECBL All-Star Game on July 27.

Little League Home Run Derby News From Cindy Rich and Mike Luster

On Saturday, May 30th the Gloucester Little League held their 4th annual Home Run Derby and Family Day at Boudreau Field. It was a gorgeous day enjoyed by hundreds of kids and their parents. The day began with a free clinic for all ages run by GHS Varsity Baseball Manager, Joe Orlando and several of his players.

The first event of the day was the “Hit the Target” contest where players had three chances to throw a ball from centerfield and hit a target at home plate. The winner of the Majors B Division was Alex Rodolosi of the Reds. Alex took home the grand prize which was $20.00 in Friendly’s gift certificates. In the Majors A Division Colby Ferris from the Indians took home the $25 gift certificate to Cape Ann Lanes.

The second event was the Roadrunner competition. The Roadrunner race is a relay consisting of 4 players who are timed as they run around the bases. In the Majors B division, the Twins took home the first place prize of a pizza party for the entire team at Papa Ginos. In the Majors A Division the Yankees flashed around the bases to claim first prize which was a pizza party at Leonardo’s Pizzeria.

Next was the Around the Horn competition – another timed event which consists of 9 players making throws to different positions on the field. In the Majors B division, The Braves won their second consecutive title and claimed their pizza party at LaRosa’s Pizzeria. In the closest contest of the day, the Mariners claimed first prize in the Majors A division and took home their pizza party from La Trattoria.

Next up was the Main Event – The Home Run Derby!!! This is what the people paid to see, the Grand Daddy of them all. The 9 year old home run was won by Salvi Costanzo of the Athletics who outslugged Jeremy McCollum, also from the Athletics. In Round 1, both Salvi and Jeremy hit 6 bombs each to advance to the final round.

In the 10 year old division Kellen Field of the Twins out-dueled Brett Lovasco of the Royals to take home the 10 year old title. Brett Lovasco pounded 3 dingers in round one, but it was Kellen Field who cranked 3 homers in the final round to take home the 10 year old crown.

The 11 year old title was claimed by Red Sox, second-baseman Noah Aiello. Noah belted 3 homers in round one and another three in the final round to outlast Indians’ slugger, Brennan Crossman.

The 12 year old competition was one for the ages as Sam Bevins from the Red Sox pounded his way to a victory over teammate Bart Margiotta and Tyler Favaloro of the Dodgers.

All four home run derby winners were awarded a $25.00 gift certificate from Palazola’s Sporting Goods.

The biggest victory of the day was claimed by Carla Pallazola who took home the Grand Prize of $5,000.00 in the annual Big Money Raffle. Other prize winners were as follows:

$1,500.00 The McCollum Family

$1,000.00 The Oliveira’s
