First weekend of WWKIP: Where did you knit?

Kate knitted in the audience at a comedy show.

A sock, of course.

Amy’s LYS, The Purple Purl, yarnbombed a 400ft fence in a nearby park on Queen Street.

Lettuce Knit knitted and spun in public on their patio – yes, a yarn shop with a patio!

On Sunday, WWKIPTO hosted a huge event in Toronto’s high park.  Excellent picture here, courtesy KniterlyErin.

Knitters were spotted at the Relay for Life 24-hour road race fundraising event.

More events are scheduled for this coming weekend – check your local shops and guilds! Kate will be in Waterloo at the Shall We Knit Studiopalooza.

Last Saturday was also the third International Yarnbombing Day. Some fantastic photographs on the Instagram blog.

    I crocheted a steering wheel cover while waiting for an appt. (it’s 108 F today and a cover is sorely needed!)

    I knit at an outside concert in between rain drops (set my golf umbrella on the ground and knitted under the edge of it till the rain got too heavy and we needed the umbrella over us!).

    I finished sweater sleeves and knitted a hat for my niece while bartending at a benefit for St Jude Children’s Hospital.

    I knit at the shopping centre and in church – neither is unusual behavior for me! My church knitting regularly starts conversations, and my shopping centre knitting over coffee this weekend prompted very pleasant chats with strangers. Fun!

    We knitted during a rainstorm at a beach music concert! We were under a shelter, so the important stuff (yarn and food) stayed dry!
