It's true. Knit-in-Public Day involved actual knitting in public this month! While many of us relaxed and enjoyed some comfortable, air-conditioned moments (or front patio moments) with yarn, needles and friends, there were several energetic types who got out and about and had a blast.

The wonderful weather, combined with many interesting St. Thomas locations on our scavenger hunt list, had our intrepid knitters laughing and enthusiastically sharing their photos to qualify for prizes. They certainly had people about town wondering what was going on!!!

And maybe that is what it's all about. Sharing our passion. Admitting to the world that we are knitters. Coming out of the closet. Inspiring others. Creating. Relaxing. Challenging ourselves. Being proud of what we do. Whoever thought of promoting knitting-in-public got it right. This is something that is needed.For the next little while, I'd like to add some k-i-p photos at the end of each blog. If you would like to send in a photo of yourself (or just your knitting) knitting-in-public, email me at info@littleredmitten.ca . By sharing your passion, here and in the real world, maybe we can make the world a calmer, friendlier place. Well, it's worth a try, right?!?!
