KIP - KIP - KIP-ing Away!!
I have my great-aunt Kate's wooden knitting needles.
I have a baby sweater that my grandmother knit for me as an infant.
|Safe, neutral baby color ... mint green|
I have skating socks that my mother knit for me when I was 10 or 11.
|Yes.... I still wear these.|
And I have the sweater I knitted for a 4-H project when I was 13. That sweater is almost 44 years old! Almost! Damn! It almost qualifies for an AARP card!!!!
|This sweater actually won lots of honors and awards. Loved this sweater!|
So KIP-ing (knitting in public) comes waaaay too natural! In fact -- I have no shame! I will knit almost any and everywhere. But not in church. Can't go that far!
When a couple of friends asked me to host an event on World Wide Knit in Public Day ..... I was sooooo there!!!!
Saturday June 11th -- we will be knitting and crocheting and spinning in public here at Miss Eff's. Grab your needles, your hooks or your wheels. Park yourself and purl in the corn-zebo. Do yarn-overs in the orchard. Sit and spin in a corner of the lath house.
We are starting at 2 ... and will quit when we run out of yarn!!!! (OK -- I may have to take a break and make supper for Honey around 7-7:30)
Miss Eff's will provide sangria ... cuz the laughter is louder with wine!! We will also have lemonade.
If you stroll into the Summer Kitchen and buy any hand-spun yarn ... you will receive a gift certificate for Half-Off a bucket of flowers. Yea .... Miss Eff 's attempt to be Groupon!
So grab a chair ... head out to the glorious countryside, we call Miss Eff's and we will hand you a wine glass. Oh ... you might want to RSVP so there is one for you!!!!
