WWKIP Day 2011

Well, our second annual World Wide Knit in Public Day celebration & sale has once again come and gone.  Lots of fun was had by all, despite the windy, cold, drizzly weather.  There were dogs, kids, cakes, yarn buying, laughter…lots of laughter, and of course, many excited local (and visiting) knitters, crocheters, and spinners.  Some of the tough ones braved the cold for an hour or so, until even they had to admit, they could no longer feel their fingers.  Then we all crammed into the shop and knit to our hearts content for the rest of the day…with the heat on!

See you all (and hopefully some new faces too) next year!

A few of the diehards just before it got way to cold & rainy! (L to R) Rochelle, Melodie, Jane, Karen, and Katie...there were more at the start, but my pics didn't turn out, sorry 😦

Katie G. and her pal Franklin

Paula, Jane, Karen, and Allison knitting away in the short lived "nice" weather.

The relative peace & quiet of the "inside knitters" didn't last long...

How many knitters can you fit in a little yarn shop, you ask???

Milly trying to avoid Franklin up high on the counter...watched carefully, of course, by her dad, Peter.

Franklin, Milly, and Amy. Franklin was rather enamoured with Milly...the feeling was not mutual.

Allison, Anna, Klara, and Klara's favourite little shop toy...the Well Dressed Bunny.

Bored of the grown ups knitting, Jane reorganizes the shop. Jane reorganizes the shop so often though, that one day I'll probably have to start paying her.

Pollie & Franklin having a cuddly moment.

The end of a long, busy day and one dog tired little pup.



  1. Wish I could have been there! I did knot tho 🙂 Maybe next year!!

    • Hopefully next year! You can bring your rug hooking 🙂

  2. Franklin steals the show. Again. Proper thing.

    • Haha thanks Dale!!!

  3. Awesome! Jane and I were happy to be part of the WWKIP at A Good Yarn again this year!

    • WWKIP Day wouldn’t be the same without you guys!

  4. One of these days I’ll make it! Looks like it was so much fun.

  5. Great to see the pix and so many (now) familiar faces! Looks like it was a blast.
