World Wide Knitting in Public Day: June 14, 2008

What a great day! I woke up to cool air, sunshine, low humidity. My favorite cat, Sophie, is alive. The turtles have a future home in a natural setting (as opposed to the 10 gallon tank they currently inhabit), and all is good except I cannot sleep in and be lazy.

Today was World Wide Knitting in Public Day. Here are some of the images:

Left to right:
Row 1: Emma. Row 2: Evelyn, Linda, Mary Ann, Janet, Terri. Row 3: Marianne, Marie, Agnes, Aggie, Monica, Marion, Janice, Mary Beth, Jackie, Maggie, Rita, Devera, Denise.
(I'm taking the picture)

Denise is working on a pair of socks. Her second pair. Her first pair was red and came out a little oversize. Kathy bought her the yarn and the needles for this pair. It's beautiful. So is she. She is one of the most beautiful women I know, inside out.

. . .

This is Marie's project. Also socks. I kind of wish I'd joined the bandwagon of summertime socks, since they are a small project, they don't rest in your lap, and they certainly don't create too much heat.

. . .

Here is Emma. She's also beautiful.

And a close-up of her crochet.

. . .

Ahh. The Knit-iots. Mary Ann and myself.

I'm sure neither of us like this picture but aren't the shirts great!?!?!?!?!?!?!? She made them.

Thank you, Marie, for organizing and getting
us WWKIP buttons!!!! Way to go!

Hello - I've been doing some blog surfing and came across your treasure. What a fine. I am also a "happy hooker" as my husband calls me. Love to keep my hands busy. I also have been making bag bags for many years. One thing that I like to add to the inside of the bag are little pockets and compartments for my cell phone, glasses, wallet, etc. Makes finding things a little easier. I love your handles....looks so professional. Thanks for an enjoyable read. God Bless.

It looks like you all had a great time on WWNIPD. We met at SNS and also had a great day.
