Knitting in Public (part 1)
Hi folks! Today was the first day of our annual Worldwide Knitting in Public celebration, and since it was raining we headed over to Costa's in Bruntsfield for our exhibitionism.
Knitting-wise, projects included an Ishbel shawl, a lacy (and extremely purple) cardigan, and some absolutely adorable stripy baby dungarees. We also saw a top with very cool frilly edging.
We also got to see some Mongolian cashmere yarn from Fyberspates, some extremely purple Noro yarn, and some hand-painted yarn from a local store in San Fransisco. I got to show off some Yarn Yard yarn too.
We had some crochet too! There was an ongoing granny square blanket made in many, many pieces, and a giant (and apparently very cat-friendly) blanket being made all in one piece.
Also, Alana made us cake*!There will be more Knitting in Public on Wednesday (at Caffe Lucano), and next Sunday (at St. Andrew's Square), so if you couldn't make it today there are still plenty more chances!
(I'd also like to mention that at one (brief) stage, the boys outnumbered the girls! Woo!)
