Any time knitters gather it's a thing of beauty, but when the gathering happens on World Wide Knit in Public Day, it's something extra special. Face it, it's hot in this part of the country in June. I have contemplated moving our own celebration of the day to a more temperate month, like March, but I stubbornly hold on to the idea of honoring the day on the day.
My very first WWKiP Day event took place at Riverfront Park in North Charleston, and we were back again this year. It was a truly gorgeous day. As hot as it was, the temperature under the ancient oaks was quite comfortable.
It was a relaxing time of knitting and chatting and people (and macaw!) watching. And we contributed to the Knit in Public movement in a tangible way. I loved being a part of something big, even if only for a few hours.
Thank you to those who were able to make it and to those who messaged me that you wished you'd been able to come--we missed you! Hope to see you all next year on World Wide Knit in Public Day, Charleston style.
