Better living through stitching together

Hi friends, Did you know that it's Worldwide Knit In Public Day tomorrow? It's true! Actually, it's tomorrow and Sunday...and then next Saturday and Sunday too. WWKIP began in 2005 as a way to encourage knitters to get outside with their knitting and get to know one another. Since then it's become a bit of a sensation, with more than 200 KIP events held worldwide in 2007. And I love the WWKIP motto, "Better living through stitching together." yarn One of the shops I visited on last week's TTC Knitalong, The Naked Sheep, is sponsoring a WWKIP event this Saturday down at The Beach. The Purple Purl, another shop I visited, will be hosting an event in Leslieville (click the link and scroll down to find details). They both sound like great fun! babysweater I won't be able to make it to either event, but I will be knitting – my current project, that baby sweater up there, is coming along quite nicely, and hopefully I'll be finished before the lucky little girl I'm knitting for outgrows it. (Fingers crossed!) And while I knit? I'll be dreaming about the next project I'm going to cast on...a shawl, I think. Maybe this one. Happy knitting! PS There's still time to enter this week's contest! I have a copy of the book Feathering the Nest: Tracy Hutson’s Earth-Friendly Guide to Decorating Your Baby’s Room to give away. Leave a comment on this post by 5 pm today (Friday, June 12) for your chance to win. This week, I’m looking for crafting ideas for kids. What’s your favourite way to spend a rainy afternoon with children. Finger paint? Glitter glue? Simple needlework? I’d love to know. As usual, I’ll post a winner Monday (June 15).
