To Market, To Market AND Knit In Public!

This weekend, lucky lucky Suzanne is "at market"-- which means she is at The National NeedleArts Association trade show which, this time around, is in Ohio. She'll be hanging out with other needlearts fanatics, checking out awesome new products, and making some great choices to bring back for us all. If you want to be properly jealous, check out the TNNA Trade Show Info page here.

And while any weekend is a good weekend to go to market, this is an especially appropriate weekend as tomorrow is World Wide Knit in Public Day. Actually, these days the powers that be are referring to it as World Wide Knit in Public Weekend. And if you ask me, I think you should knit in public every day. But if you want to be certain to celebrate this official High Holy Day of Knitting in excellent company, I am totally recommending you check out the open knit/art installation happening on Sunday from 12 - 6 at 502 W. 33rd Street, real close to Guadalupe. This is the second of three open knits being held to dismantle and reformulate yarn used in a crocheted art installation. Last weekend HCW's own Jordi led the group and it was a great turnout, lots of people having fun and some of them brand new to knitting. For more info click here.

Happy Knitting in Public, Y'all (and Suzanne? Come back soon, hear?)
