|Knitting in bed probably doesn't count, Gromit, unless you move your bed outside!|
World Wide Knit In Public Day of course. It goes from June 8-16 because knitting is like that, once you get going it's hard to stop, "just one more row" is often heard muttered.
You can join up here and see what events are taking place in your neck of the woods or just get your knitting out where-ever you are. It's a great conversation starter and just might inspire some-one else to 'get their knit on'!
I love these vintage photos of "stars" knitting, often on set while they wait for to play their role...other pics show men in prison knitting and some very old photos from the UK showing traditional patterns.
Have you joined Ravelry yet? 6,000 plus free knitting and crochet patterns, tips and advice, groups to chat with and it's simply wonderful. They're on Facebook too :D
"Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools and pattern information, and look to others for ..."
I try to take a photo of each knitted item I finish and then give it a name (eg Liam's Cardi) so that I know what I have made and for whom, my photo album on this pc is rather large and it's lovely to look through it and remember the pleasure I had both knitting and then giving the finished product.
Can you see my bunnies in my china cabinet at the top of the page? They were designed by this lovely blogger who lives in the Lake District and knit by me. I especially love the poster on the side of this page where the little lad is bundled up in his Mother's love but is wishing for a little more freedom lol
Soooo, do you knit or crochet?
Do you "do it" in public like me?
Tell us your story please?
