On Saturday morning, my friend Liz and I set off on a short road trip…destination: Shall We Knit? in Waterloo for their annual World Wide Knit In Public day. They had hosted quite the gathering last year, and we thought it would be a fun way to spend a day and see some fibre-friends.
Outdoor tents abounded, including one with Super-Kate Atherley at the wheel offering up advice for the knitter-in-need:
Kim and Ron of indigodragonfly were on hand for a dyeing demo – proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund.
The only picture I got of Marit’s Gobstopper hand-dyed gradient yarn is one of the skein(s) I purchased myself. The colour is so much more awesome than this picture shows. I can’t decide if these will be socks, or long fingerless mitts.
And I may have fallen down on some yummy merino tencel fibre from Waterloo Wools.
I even won a door prize! Thanks so much to the lovely ladies of Shall We Knit? for hosting such a lovely day!
