It was hot. Very hot. I am NOT a sun person. In the past, when the sun was shining, I would go to a matinee. How many summer weekends did I spend in the cool dark caverns of Manhattan movie theaters while everyone was frolicking in the Hamptons or at Jones Beach!?
But yesterday was WWKIP Day. For the muggles out there, that's World Wide Knit in Public Day. And since I was the one who conjured up the plan, with some help from Marina, Marci and a few others, I had to venture out in the heat. Besides, I had those little buttons to dole out.
Brooklyn Museum of Art. We had 22 Public Knitters and 1 Public Spinner. We had the pleasure of some knitting "celebs" show up - Subway Knitter, some of the Spiders, wow! Thanks for coming out, guys, it was great meeting you all.
Portia, a design by Kim Hargreaves, using Silky Merino from Malabrigo. Bright turquoise. Gorgeous color. After all the man knitting I've been doing - so many gifts...this one is bright, girly and all for me.
