Happy World Wide Knit In Public Day. I hope everyone had a good time and got some good public knitting done. I headed over the the Central Library at Grand Army Plaza, but didn’t get to stay long, as I had a birthday party to go to. There were knitting, crochet, and spinning lessons. I would have loved to learn to spin but the time crunch as I had to make it down to Prospect Park West. Maybe next year.
So as you all know I broke the yarn drought while down in DC. I felt this was a good cause when I heard, “I didn’t even bring any yarns or needles with me”. Said friend is only in DC for eight weeks for an internship but still so wrong.
I’ve decided to keep the tally going because I am making a dent in the yarn, and as I gear up for Christmas knitting, and other gifts I will have to buy yarn eventually but I am making progress. So I have simply added a new category. Skeins Purchased in 2010.
Another thing I’ve been picking up like there is no tomorrow are stitch dictionaries:
Those two being the most recent purchases. Both books have appealing stitches and are helping to inspire and show me how I’m going to pull out some of the images in my head.
I also picked up a new project bag. This one in fact. I had been turned onto the seller by a fellow knitter and needed a second bag.
Despite the knitting in public I’m still only a third or so of the way done with the blue jeans shawl, I blame writing, and reading on the bus, but I’m sure it will get done soon enough. Hopefully to keep me warm on said bus.
