WWKIPDAY

Yesterday was World Wide Knit In Public Day and a new record was set. In total there were 882 Knit In Public events in 56 different countries. Ten new countries joined this year:
Japan, Indonesia, China, Kuwait, Philippines, Cyprus, Faroe Island, Ecuador, Gibraltar and France. This year there were also more than 200 events than last year..that’s also a record. Doesn’t this show that the world really needs knitting – and the mission with this project is: “Better Living Through Stitching Together”.

wwkipsouthpacific2The Redlands Spinners & Weavers Knit and Knatter group registered for WWKIPDAY. Eleven of us turned up with our knitting, crocheting and I brought along my spinning wheel and did some spinning and some knitting too.

K&K 13-6-15 06Unfortunately for me, but maybe fortunately for everyone else 🙂 I had just about lost my voice yesterday. On Friday, I started feeling a bit odd, on Friday night my throat was so sore and on Saturday morning when I was shopping at my local deli I opened my mouth to tell the sales assistant what I was after and nothing came out!! Oh no!! This is not what I need when I have a few busy days ahead. Consequently, today I was supposed to be helping out sorting and wrapping raffle baskets for our Open Day which is on this Tuesday!! I’ve had to pull out and try to rest today as tomorrow I will have to go into work for a short time. If I’m not feeling well enough I’ll come home early and then hope on Tuesday I wake up feeling a lot better.

To finish off I’m going to show you this lovely cardigan I bought not long ago. One of the ladies at spinning was wearing one and I just loved the colour so I asked her where she bought it from. I rang my local Rockmans and they managed to track one down for me in my size and now I have one!!

wwkipsouthpacific2That’s all from me today as I’m not feeling 100%. I can’t wait until Tuesday for Open Day! Hope you have a wonderful week.

Until next time…
