WWKIP Day June 14 2008

Sit n Knit NYC, (we rock!) Kipped in Central Park! It was a nice day, if a bit humid, but it did not stop 60 of us from spreading out our projects. We were such a curiosity, that some tourists took pictures and videos of us. My T-shirt that said "I love to knit" was not the kind that would get you a date, but got lots of chuckles... In true NYC spirit we had an after party in a bar. Minty, (who was the official event photographer, links to more photos soon) did warn me that alcohol consumed in a cool bar turns you a notch happier when you are back in the scorching sun, but just one frozen margarita???

I finished the baby Noro Hat for a friend's baby.
I did not make changes to the pattern, just knit in a thinner yarn with smaller needles.

We avoided the British showers of rain and sat in a cafe for 4 hours, came out to brilliant sunshine. Looks like everyone had a lovely time

That looks like such fun! There was a knit-crawl in London I was planning to go to but then was ill so couldn't.

It was great fun, if a bit hot out. (I realized that b/c Anne-Marie hired me to take the photos, they're not mine to post! She and I need to finalize the delivery and then I'm sure you'll see them.)

that looks like a great day at snb breda we think it is a must at our evenings to drink along with the knitting. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

Us Brooklyn Knitters met in front of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, (which was very public but also VERY hot). We had a great time, about 30 of us over the course of 3 hours.

Come see some pix at

Wish I'd been there, Hila! You're the first person in ages that I've found to be positive about Noro Sock - good girl! The baby cap looks divine.
