World Wide Knit in Public Day

Did you knit in public on World Wide Knit in Public Day on Saturday June 13, 2009?

Many of our Stockinettes joined hostess Sheila and knit in public under the shady oak trees at Capitol Park in Sacramento, CA.

WWKiPD Hostess Stockinette Sheila
at Capitol Park, Sacramento, CA

Stockinette Sheila was a wonderful hostess for our local WWKiPD. Sheila chose the wonderful location of Capitol Park at the State Capitol for the meet up. About 30 knitters (including about 8 Stockinettes) joined this knitting event at Capitol Park.

Everyone enjoyed tea, lattes, delicious soups, salads and sandwiches thanks to her good friend Sheron who opened Chicory Coffee and Tea (across the street) just for the knitters on WWKiPD. Thank you Sheron and the Chicory staff!

Kudos to Hostess Sheila for the wonderful WWKiPD hand-made stitch markers. Sheila took a cue from our recent Tuesday Night Program "Play with Clay". She recruited (her knitting buddy) fellow Stockinette Michele to make these creative hand made clay stitch markers for WWKiPD. Notice how they are designed as a world globe to tie into the WWKiPD world logo.

Sheila presented these as a gift for all the knitters who attended WWKiPD at Capitol Park. Everyone loved them and couldn't help but notice the fabulous matching jewelry that Michele and Sheila made and wore to WWKiPD.

A great big thank you to hostess Sheila and her helper Michele. WWKiPD was a smashing success. A special thank you to Sheila's fabulous husband Ed. Ed helped Sheila set up for WWKiPD and even helped the ladies move their cars when their downtown parking meters expired.

And lastly Hostess Sheila, knitters want to know...where will be knitting next year for WWKiPD?
