Speaking of knitting in public, Hawaiian knitter Barbie Kihara spends up to 14 hours a day, 5 days a week in a local fast food restaurant in Manoa, knitting and crocheting.Â She will happily teach anyone who wants to learn, and creates projects for donation to a variety of local causes. She also volunteers her time at community centers and nursing homes to pass along her knowledge.Â “From young time I’d always wanted to learn how to knit and crochet, but it was hard without anyone to teach me,” Kihara says. “Now I try to help other people so they don’t have to go through the same thing. My mother always taught us to do things on our own, help each other and help other people when we can. I still try to do that.”
It’s a genuinely lovely little movie about the adventures of a boy and his cat.
And if you need something to knit in public that week, consider entering our contest.… we are giving away a copy of Teva Durham’s brand-new book Loop-D-Loop Lace and enough Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton yarn to knit the cover sweater!
