Knitting in Public



Today is World Wide Knitting in Public Day!

Here is some background about WWKIP day from their website:
World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other's company. Knitting is such a solitary act that it's easy to knit alone somewhere and sink into your work without thinking about all the other knitters out there. Neighbors could spend all their lives never knowing that the other knits. This a specific day to get out of your house and go to a local event (with your knitting in tow) just for you and people like you. Who knows you might even bump into your neighbor! Consider this a spark, to ignite a fire; getting all of the closeted knitters out into fresh air.
There are organized events for WWKIP, but I think it would be nice even to just take up your knitting and go outside.

I took a break from my latest project because of bursitis in my shoulder, but this past week I have started back (in short doses), and have been doing fine.  I've already started thinking about my next project.

Hope you get a chance to work with needles and yarn, (or needle and thread) and enjoy a little creative bliss today.
