WWKIP

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.

Cardinal Ruby – one of the four colourways to be auctioned off for charity!

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!
