Knit One, Plot Zilch

Filed under: huge earrings, huge hats — nedryerson @ 3:38 am


Jocelynn Brown knit her own hat! That’s what we’re working with today.

So it looks like after a softball games, the girls go back to the locker room and change back into business casual clothes along with all their accessories. Seems a bit extreme. But anything is possible in a world where a slugger and leader knits her own hat.

Will she knit hats for everybody on the team? Will she start a hat knitting seminar series where she teaches the other players to knit their own hats? Let’s all head down to the Yarn Barn and we can learn about fiber. Scrimmage? No, thanks.

Knitting is a magical thing. All those mysterious, repetitive hand movements with pointy implements making an infinite number of loops, turning yarn into a textile. In the popular culture I consumed as a youth, a knitter was usually an old lady who would chant “knit one, purl two” as she worked those needles. Sometimes, they had their own sheep.



  1. So when Jocelynn begged off the scrimmage for “family time,” I guess she was actually attending the annual Greater Milford Sheep & Wool Festival.

  2. Oh, I thought she might be Jim Brown’s granddaughter and she grabbed it out of his closet one day…

  4. I can’t decide what’s the best part of the spring story. The deft sense of pace? The richly layered characters? Plot twists so amazing as to make “Game of Thrones” weep with a sense of its own inadequacy? I mean, this last one? The catcher not only made her own hat – she did it with knitting needles and yarn!
    Can Rubin keep this up until summer?

  5. Credit where due: Women characters are having a discussion and it is not about a man.
