I just thought you would all want to know that June 11th is World Wide Knit in Public Day. This makes me laugh because in college I used to hide my knitting, especially if there were boys in the vicinity. It was not cool back then or maybe I just wasn't cool enough to make knitting look cool. I would have been mortified for anyone to see me knitting other than my roommates. If I was knitting in the living room of the Garden of Eden (the name we gave our apartment - ha!) and someone knocked on the door, I would hide my knitting before answering the door. I didn't want people to think I was a boring old lady!
A few years ago celebrities like Julia Roberts started to knit in public, which generated more interest in knitting. It's so unfair that you have to have a beautiful smile, great hair, and a gazillion dollars to be able to make knitting look appealing. Anyway, grab your knitting bag and head for an event near you.
