KNITTING IN PUBLIC
There were about 20 or so of us altogether, including two MEN who 'came out of the woodwork...'
And someone showed up in a Sivia shawl called Phoenix Rising from The Year of Lace:
And Raven even gave us a drop spindle demo (look to the left of her knees):
I hope you read Raven's blog entry about the FibreFest, too. I hadn't mentioned, here, that Shelley from Fun Knits can't come this weekend -- her booth will be there, but she won't -- and Raven has said exactly what I think (thanks, Raven!)
Anyway, back to Knitting in Public, I was a little disappointed with the turnout, but the day was lovely, and those of us who WERE there had lots of fun!
Oh, and by the way ... a few months ago you might remember that members of the Knit'n'Cafe came into a whole lot of raw fleece, and then gave most of it away... here's Judy's blog entry about what happened to some of it. Judy will be giving a 'Mindful Knitting' demo at the FibreFest this weekend, so come and meet her.
