On Saturday (and Sunday, but that's not what I'm posting about) knitters in Melbourne celebrated World Wide Knit In public Day. We celebrated in true knitterly style, with good food, good company and of course, hours and hours of uninterrupted knitting!

It is true that for me almost every day in Knit in Public day. On Mondays I knit in a cafe with the Richmond Knitters, on Tuesday the pub with my trivia team (well, I knit, they don't) and whenever I catch public transport, or go out to eat or sit in the park or leave the house really. Except on the bike, I have not started knitting on my commute. Although one set of traffic lights I wait at has an eight minute cycle, so I have occasionall
y regretted not having a socks to work on while I wait. Thank you to Toni for organising, and everyone who was there. I love being a knitter, and being part of a community of knitters has made the experience so much richer. As well as being a very pleasurable day, I won a voucher for Yayforyarn. Thanks to KatinSpace and the Ravelry Rocketeers. I'm thinking this is a great opportunity to try Cascade 220, maybe for Interweave Knits Minimilist Cardigan.

I know it was WWKIP but I wanted to see how I went spinning on my little Golding spindle on public transport, as I have not done that before, and I am thinking of taking it away with me, to spin on the Trans-Siberian Express. I did okay - it only dropped once between home and Federations Square, and a nice emo looking boy picked it up and handed it back to me with a smile.
