World Wide Knitting in Public Day

Yesterday was World Wide Knitting in Public Day and although I have been absent from my blog for awhile, I have been "trying" to get my first official WWKIP day off without a hitch. Well, because I am in the middle of buying a house and getting a promotion I haven't been able to devote as much time to it as I had hoped. BUT in the end it was a nice day. We had about 12 knitters, some who knew each other, some that did not, but we all sat there in our little patch of grass on the capitol lawn and knitted it up.

I think it will make it easier for me to go out on a limb and pop up at one of these knitting meet-ups in town through out the month.

I don't really have much to say about the event except that it was hot, humid, but fun meeting the ladies and seeing the different things they were knitting on. Here are some of my pictures from the day...

congrats on the house - we're buying one, too!! we close on the 21st and are getting a moving truck on the 30th, so it's all packing and phone-call making right now...very exhausting!

good luck w/ all of your big stuff going on and congrats on the promotion!!

Good to see you surface again--sounds like you're having all kinds of excitement! WWKIP day looks like so much fun, I was stuck running a bunch of errands and didn't get to do it :(

Thanks for organizing the WWKIP-Austin event, Sharmane. I really enjoyed meeting you and the other knitters, and hanging out under the Capitol trees a-knittin'. It was a peaceful, fun time for me. Good luck with all the house and job stuff! And feel free to pop into any of the Austin knitting meet-ups!
