We can’t top a ticker tape parade, but to celebrate the Giants winning the World Series, here are some fabulous fiber creations. First, a baseball glove purse designed and crocheted by our amazing teacher of all things amigurumi and more, Judy Sakaguchi.
Next, a pair of in-progress toe up socks by Liz – love those vibrant Giants colors!
And the pièce de résistance, Fear the Handknit Beard! Bonnie made an incredible rendition of closing pitcher Brian Wilson’s famed beard.
