'Cause everybody likes pictures.
Saturday was a great day to be knitting in public. It was actually warm and sunny in Dublin, so everyone was out and about in St. Stephen's Green- there was lots of public to be knitting in. We got lots of stares and rubbernecking, I tell ya. Here are some...
Jackie had brought some samples of various fibres that she'd knit and felted. Some people brought shawls and scarves that they'd knit. Others wore their handknits. It was splendid. Everyone's handknits got fondled.
It was a great opportunity to meet other knitters. I only ever manage to make it to the city centre SnB meetings, so it was really nice to see people from the Rathmines group, the Dundalk group, the Wicklow group... not to mention knitters who'd heard or read about WWKIP Day and were showing up at a knitting meeting for the first time.
For some reason, at one point in the afternoon, people abandoned the "sit and knit" model and everyone stood up to knit and chat. Don't know why. It happened all of a sudden, too. Maybe people got tired of having to get up to look at other people's projects, so they figured they may as well stay up.
This picture makes me happy. Doesn't it look like the perfect way to spend a summer day?
