Knit in Public Day
We had a great sidewalk sale yesterday in honor of Knit in Public Day. It was time for Spring cleaning, and lots of yarn went to good homes, making room for all the great stuff we got at TNNA last weekend.There is still some sale yarn at the shop, so if you didn't make it this weekend no worries. We've got plenty of great yarn at great sale prices all summer long.Clyde and I came down and did a little shopping (there is still some Jaeger Trinity floating around the sale bins...) and then headed over to the park and met up with the 3rd St. Ravelers and Rosie's crew to do a little knitting, snacking (delicious cookies!) and socializing.Stacy and Lisa S. set up a nice spot for us and Clyde showed his appreciation by eating Stacy's Cookie A. pattern.We had a great turnout, and it was good to get out in the warm weather after with everyone to just knit and have fun.We had a few onlookers who were definitely curious about why so many of us were knitting in the park, which was fine, and we also got to see someone's wedding party get their photos done (with hot pink bridesmaid dresses!) and we saw Andrea's wedding photos. It was also great to see everyone's projects. Sometimes I only get to see your projects when something is going horribly wrong! (This is where I would insert a photo of Lisa J's Noro blanket that Meg designed but instead I am kicking myself for not taking a picture!)And at the end of the day, when we headed back to Rosie's to escape the heat, Clyde made a new friend! (Insert "Awwww..." track here).
