Tomorrow is Knit in Public Day and I hope that there will be lots of people in parks, on buses, in malls knitting. I made a knit bracelet in honor of the day. It is also great to have a day honoring crafters.

I have been one who has been seen knitting in public. When I rode buses I usually had a project with me. One time I was crocheting a poncho and was wearing it as I crocheted it at the Bellevue mall, ( got lots of comments and compliments). While knitting at the North Star Lodge waiting for my sisters chemo, I was always knitting and that was a conversation starter. It also got me invited to join the North Star Knitting group. You can find us on Facebook.
