So I did it. I finally made it to a Utah knit gathering. We talked. Ate. Knit. Publicly. Because that was the point.
Worldwide Knit in Public Day was really fun. I don’t know why I took so long to join the SnB group and now am a little ticked off that I waited. I love meeting new people and learning about their life, interests, and ideas. The fact that everyone else is a freak about knitting like I am was just a bonus. So. Much. Fun.
It was a perfect day to be out in the open. I love the Farmer’s Market and today was the opening for the season. There was a nice group out knitting. Several of the knitters are bloggers. Like Laurie who is knitting the largest tote I have ever seen–felting makes for funny knitting. Katherine is so elegant and cool and has the cutest red-headed kids you’ve ever seen. Meeting Mim is sort of like meeting a celebrity. After seeing a version of her Mountain Peaks Shawl in person…I am in. Absolutely stunning. I briefly met Michaele and also there was Eliza whose Weekender Bag I am so jealous of, and I know there were one or two more bloggers there but I didn’t get to really talk to everyone and my memory is not so good so forgive me if I missed anyone. Everyone was so welcoming and kind, it was just a plain good time. I guess I will have to start going to SnB. I mean really…how can I resist now?

Sorry to have missed the KIP day in the park! Hope to meet you Tuesday but our trek to Estes.
I think I missed the entire thing just by managing to somehow sleep till 11:30! But it really looks like it was a wonderful day. Perfect for knitting in public!
haha! We’ve so TOTALLY got you! 😉
Good for you! Glad you went and had fun.
Dang! I *relish* being thought mean and intimidating. It’s an attribute necessary for an English teacher. Oh well, you found us out. We’re marshmallows in real life.
I’m so glad you came! It was great to meet you. Wait’ll you see the bag now that it’s felted. It’s still huge!
Sounds like you had an awesome WWKIP day!! It looks like it was a beautiful day too 🙂
