Fingerless glove

looking for what's missing... I'm a knitting, spinning, mother of teenagers with a big dog, a small cat, minus the lovely rabbit Meliflua.

Right now I'm listening to "An Irish Country Village" by Patrick Taylor, reading "Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake" by Anna Quindlen and knitting Wisconsin Wintersocks. And casting off the lace shawl I've been working on since I last posted.

World Wide Knit In Public Day

This Saturday, June 9th, is Worldwide Knit In Public Day. The only officially listed site in our area seems to be at the Politics and Prose Bookstore & Coffee House from 11 to 1 in Washington DC. I won't be there

This doesn't mean that I won't participate. I knit in public as much as I can (in private, too, for that matter.) Just today at lunch I was telling a labmate about how knitters are a force to be reckoned with, how we care; how we raise money for charities like Heifer Foundation and Knitters Without Borders; how we knit for charities too -- hats for premature babies, scarves for Orphan Foundation and Serve and Santa Train, dishcloths and afghan rectangles... above and beyond the sweaters and mittens and shawls we wrap our loved ones in. Knit on! And this Saturday, try to do a little of it in public.
