On Saturday, I attended a brewfest at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
This is a picture of the mural that was in the World Cafe. It reminded me of the Tree of Life in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
It was an Oktoberfest, featuring nothing but German beers.
I made it my mission to try each and every Oktoberfest style beer. By the end of the afternoon, I had decided that the following were my top 3 favorites:
1. Beck’s Oktoberfest
2. Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest
3. And, of course, the classic: Spaten Oktoberfest
While waiting in line for the fest to start and while meandering through the tables of beer, I ran into two other knitters. Both picked me out as a knitter by my Ravelry buttons.
The 1st knitter told me about a new knitting store that she found in Newtown, PA. I’d share a link to the store if I could find it, but no such luck. She said it was called Slipped Knot. Has anybody heard of it?
Edited to say that I found information on the new store. The name of the store is Slip Knot.

The 2nd knitter, Trish (this time I got her name), mentioned that she attended the Phillies Stitch-n-Pitch for the past two years. It was she who had knit a Phillies baseball cap. Not only did I know exactly which hat she was talking about, I had featured it on my blog 2 years ago, I told her how I had searched for the cap this past year but didn’t see it. Trish explained that she had given it to her daughter to wear, but her daughter was sitting in the bleachers up above us. Next year, Trish vowed to keep the hat herself and at least wear it for a few minutes. I’ll be looking for it. It’s such a fabulous hat!
Speaking of baseball, my Phillies are going to the World Series to play the Tampa Bay Rays. It starts on Wednesday. I am SO excited!

So DH is a Yankees fan and they lost, then he became a Dodgers fan (because of Joe Torre) and they lost so now he’s become a Phillies fan. Watch out, he seems to be really bad luck this year.

What a great idea. I’ll have to knit a Mets hat!
How ’bout that Bo’Sox/Tampa series. Wow.
Anyway, see ya at the Series!
Sounds like a nice outing! I’m a Guiness Stout girl, myself.
BTW, Bridget at The Ravell’d Sleave is in your neck of the woods (link is on my blog). She’s also incredibly excited about that sport… now what is it? Oh, yes. Baseball.
Go Rays! We tried to get tix, but at $150 each, we decided to pass. Octoberfest sounds like it was fun- While you were tasting, my husband and his buds were brewing (Florida homebrew is our drink of choice!
I’ve been to Slip Knot. It’s a pretty nice store.
