Knit in Public Day (photo recap!)

june 2012 042

Arrived at Millennium Park before 10 am! Me? Early? A KIP-day miracle!

Found a shady spot, set up my new camp chair, chatted with friends and proudly knit in public (yellow, of course! and if you’re wondering what I’m working on, it’s here: “Sophie” by Cheri Christian)

And had my photo taken for the Peterborough Examiner! (photo cred to Clifford Skarstedtt) True fact: knitting above your head is not easy!

Of course, wardrobe decisions had to be made in advance – wore my new Cap Sleeve Lattice Top (until it got too hot out!). I know it’s a bit of a stretch from my grellow-fidelity, but I’m really into this blueish-greyish-greenish colour. It looks so great with bright or pale yellows! I knit this one with Debbie Bliss’ Eco Baby sport-weight organic cotton, in “Duck Egg” and “Ecru”.

Speaking of yellows, I spied these little beauties on Indigodragonfly‘s table and knew they had to be mine. They’ll make a perfect Color Affection shawl – I didn’t even know I *wanted* a Color Affection shawl!

And then I convinced Kim and Ron (of Indigodragonfly, of course) to let me take some yarn back to the store with me – restock of Merino Sock and some Ultra MCN sock (with 20% cashmere! *drooool*)

And some squishy new MCN Lace and Merino Single Lace.

And because I know you want to know, as of this morning we have a restock of Malabrigo Lace, as well as some Sirdar Baby Bamboo and Debbie Bliss Eco Baby. So much knitting to do!

    I swear, if future historians of this area ever try to figure out what weird rituals we carried out on WWKIP days from Clifford’s photos, it’s going to be interesting. Between you holding the sacred object over your head, and my friend Colleen kneeling at our feet a couple years ago…. 🙂
