Knitting in Public

Apparently knitting is still considered a subversive art form in that some people find public knitting a notable event.  There's even a day devoted to this.  World-Wide Knit in Public Day.

 This weekend, a gaggle (pride, herd, murder?) of knitters congregated in the Boca Towne Center.  Sticks in air, yarn in hand, we were prepared to bring knitting awareness to the unwashed masses.  We're here and we're...handy with needles and yarn!

Pam showing us that knitting doesn't have to be a sedentary sport - free-range knitting!

Did the public take notice?

This dude clearly just wanted to sit next to Kerrilyn - who doesn't?

I was a little late (alright, I got waylaid at Anthropologie) so I missed the encounter with the mall police.  They'd never heard of World-Wide Knit in Public Day and were quite suspicious at first.  We almost got shut down by the fuzz (mall cops on Segways, no less)!  But after a little explanation, all was well.

Happy Knit in Public Week - go ahead, kiss a knitter!

  1. I clearly thought that dude just wanted to get close and be very sly about the whole thing reading that paper.
