World Wide Knit in Public week officially started yesterday. It runs June 13 thru June 20. Remember, I posted about this a few weeks back. In celebration of KiP week I've decided to try to post a picture everyday this week showing knitting in public. The pictures will more than likely be me knitting in public or pictures of some of my knitting in public places. I think you will get a kick out of some of it.
The picture above is one of me knitting on public transportation. I knit almost everyday while commuting to and from work on the bus. I love it! If I work at it I can do a dish cloth in one day's commute. My ride one way is kind of long (almost an hour) but the money I save in gas is so worth it. The real bonus is the knitting time I get in with few, if any, interruptions. I have figured out that it is best (for me anyway) not to have anything that requires a pattern or a lot of thought. I like to look around and keep my bearings because of my battle with motion sickness. When I first started knitting on the bus I got a lot of questions from fellow commuters - "what is that" or "what are you making". Now most of my bus buddies just accept it and don't really pay much attention to me. It is a good way for me to block out some of the chatter and noise on the bus and escape into my own little world. It truly is therapy.
I hope you enjoy the week. I encourage you to take the challenge and knit in public just once this week. If you do I hope you will share your pictures and/or stories with us.
P.S. Little Girl is having a blast in Puerto Rico. Tonight they will be having a feast with some local folks. Please keep them in your prayers.
I am a wife, mother and grandmother who works full time and loves crafts and beer. I am married to my soul mate who is a home brewer and we enjoy trying new beers. We have an amazing family that keeps life interesting. I love any kind of crafts and my interests change often. Knitting and crocheting are a constant for me though and offer relaxation - most of the time. Life for me is fun, crazy, and exhausting all at the same time. I hope you will enjoy reading about it. Thanks for stopping in. I hope you will visit often and feel free to leave a comment.
Friday Night Beer Review posts are about craft beers that we have tried. Reviews are not always posted on Friday nights, but the beers are typically drank on Friday nights. The "reviews" are just our comments and thoughts about different beers and our likes and dislikes. Hubby and I have different tastes so we hope you find this interesting. You will also find information about different breweries. I will even try to post some beer happenings when I can. This is our feable attempt to make folks aware of various craft brews, breweries and beer happenings. Enjoy!
