International Knit in Public Day

We enjoyed Knit in Public Day yesterday at Cedar Farm, Mawdesley, Lancashire.  The day was incredibly hot so the knitters were truly hardcore.  I was joined by Stacey who came to spin and we moved around throughout the day depending on where the heat was perfect.

We joined Tamzin and Ruth to knit sections of a scarf which was raffled off at the end of the day, the money going towards two charities, Queenscourt Hospice and SKCV (Street Kids Community Village, India)

It was a wonderful good natured day with all, from young to old(er) joining in.  Knitters are good natured people and I enjoyed my day with Stacey who is a knitter but who came to spin (and was a natural).

Today, (Sunday) I headed over to Burscough Wharf where Colin and Carole Wareing from The Wool Boat were hosting an event.  The weather was stunning yet again and as only mad dogs and knitters would go out in the noon day sun, well, here were some of Lancashire's best.

The Wool Boat are now stocking some of my yarn and fibres, so if you see them on the Leeds Liverpool canal, be sure to pop in and say hello to them.  They post regularly on ravelry or facebook where they'll be, click on the link to like their page.
