Worldwide Knit in Public day

Here we all are in the abbey gardens in Bury St.Edmunds on Saturday, worldwide knit in public day, and as you can see, it was a glorious day! The group generated a lot of interest from passersby, including a brave Swedish man who actually sat and learned to knit with one of the ladies! The local press were also in attendance!

Cast on for a new pair of socks to try out the sole solution software using Aprils Yarn Yard sock club offering and a spiral rib pattern. I don't expect to progress too quickly on these - socks aren't exactly summer knitting - as I'm still plodding on with the pink stole. It's appoaching 72" long now and probably long enough, but I like to be able to wrap this type of thing around a couple of times, so I'm going to keep on knitting till all the yarn is used.

It was glorious on Saturday, wasn't it? Now, I'm intrigued; as I can see you in the picture I'm wondering who took the picture? Did your daughter catch us unawares?

Y'know, funnily enough, I had the same thought when I first looked at the photo, but it was me who took it - I think I must have a sneaky doppleganger!

Aha! I've been misled by Eleanor's green top...
