The reason for such a "grammatical" title?

Tomorrow is WorldWide Knit In Public Day! In other words...get out there and peak the interest of some would be/wanna be knitters! It's nothing unusual for me to be knitting in public, and I'm always asked what am I doing...crocheting? After being watched for a while, there's usually the remark..."I'd like to learn to knit!" Ta-Dah....a knitter is born! The same thing happens when I spin but most don't want to learn...they are mesmerised by the spinning of the wheel and what they call an "Old Craft"! Yes, it's an "old craft" but it's never gone away...just like knitting! I've been knitting for over 30 years!

There are many organized get togethers for WWKIP, check out their blog for places near you, and if there's not one...go to the park and knit...or hit a ballgame!
You don't even have to ask...YES, I'll be knitting in public. We have a family reunion in a city park where I'll have knitting in hand...pun intended! I'll probably be the only one knitting...

Last night was Knit/Spin night and unfortunately I had to miss it...but for a VERY good reason! Earlier this week I received a phone call, there was this sweet little voice on the other end of the line that says "Aunt Robin....I Love You--Will you come to my graduation?" Who could resist....I couldn't!
Here's a shot of 3 of my favorite people...son Chase, his girlfriend Jessica & Maggie! It was really funny that the teachers voted each child "Most Likely To..." Maggie was voted "Most Likely To Appear On Project Catwalk"! Boy they have her number!

Well...I hope EVERYONE has a fantastic weekend! It's going to be sweltering here, yesterday it hit 92 and tomorrow will be hotter!

Keep cool...and Keep On Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!!

that's not entirely true... you were there long enough to "force" me into buying more roving than I'd planned! :)

I plan on taking knitting with me wherever my aunt and I go tomorrow for a just in case moment! :)

have a great weekend!

Have a great time tomorrow, wherever you knit. I'll sit on my front deck and knit away. Cheers and Happy Knitting.

Well..where can I knit in public in Bedrock and not get harrassed or
That Maggie is JUST the most gorgeous little girl ever!!
And Chase is very easy on the eyes~and so is his girlfriend, although she's not my type..

Tomorrow is a local parade and not only will I be knitting while watching from my lawnchair, but also will be joining my Meetup knitting group for a field trip to a favorite S.E.X store! :)
Hope you have a fun weekend!
