World Wide Knit in Public Day!!
Yes, my non-knitting friends, there is such a thing as World Wide Knit in Public Day. And today was that day! Renaissance Yarns set up a knitting area outdoors at Kent Station, and the weather was great. Mom and I took Frieda and Gretel to the dog park before heading to Kent so that they would behave, and they did pretty well. There was some barking, some licking and jumping on people, but as you can tell from Frieda's glassy eyed expression above, they did eventually settle down. This is the first time I've been to a local WWKIP day, because I've either been travelling or at a certain young lady's birthday party, and it was a lot of fun. Next time, I'll have to remember to bring a sun hat (and maybe only one dog, or none), and to bring just one easy project because that's all I can pay attention to! I started out working on a project with a chart, but after less than a row it became clear that that was asking for it, and my trusty stockinette Gothsock came out. I made some progress, but not so much that I have to worry about the heel yet (soon, I hope).
