What are you doing for World Wide Knit in Public Day this year?

As we did last year, my family is going on a bike tour tomorrow around Baltimore. I took along a pair of socks that I was working on for my husband last year, and did knit on them at the picnic after the ride. (Wish I could knit and ride at the same time!)

This year, I am planning on taking along another pair of socks:


This is a pattern of my own that I’ve been playing with for a while. The yarn is Miss Babs Northumbria Fingering BFL in the “Sugilite” colorway.

Today, though, I am working on the second baby sweater:


I redid the stripes (using the more subtle green yarn), and am now up to working the ribbed buttonband. This has been a quick, fun knit, and the yarn (KnitPicks Comfy) has been much easier on my hands than the 100% cotton I used for the Scalloped Lace Baby Sweater.

What’s on your needles right now? Are you participating in any activities for WWKIP Day?

  1. As a matter of fact, I took my Wingspan in Knit Picks Imagination (Ruby Slippers) to the VFRW meeting today and almost finished another triangle. I LOVE how it’s working up! The pattern is exactly perfect for meetings or baseball games where your mind may be on other things; the only place you really need to think is when you turn, slip, K2, then replace the traveling marker. Love it!!

    I’d like to spend the entire weekend working on it, but I’m on the last color change of the Boneyard and I know someone very special who deserves a handmade gift. 🙂
