KIP Winter Edition

Today in North Florida, we had a Knit In Public Event organized by Kim. The event was held at Memorial Park which is located on the beautiful St. Johns River. The park is full of old oak trees that have Spanish Moss hanging from them. It's such a beautiful location and I forsee that we'll be taking the pups there for a walk along the river soon.
The event also included a raffle for wonderful yarny things. All funds raised are going to Hubbard House, which is an organization that provides safe shelter for abused women and their families. Kim and Corrina worked the raffle table.
Jennifer is an amazing spinner and a knitter who truly loves to share what she knows about knitting, spinning, yarns, etc. I'm very fortunate to know her.
About 50 people attended. Unfortunately, I was very remiss in getting a shot of the whole group. But here's a few of us.

BAH~ I was on my way there when the rain started. I turned the mom-bus around. I SOOO wanted to make more headway with the neverending baby towel. I worked on it at home, but it's just not the same when surrounded by NON-knitters.

What a fun time AND I agree with those who were wishing the weather by US was nice enough to have something like that outdoors. *sigh*

Looks like a ton of fun!
Thanks for stopping by your blog, I would have emailed you back, but I don't have your email.

What a lovely idea! Jackie, you are one of the people I can't find an e-mail address for - it always comes up 'no reply'. Next time you leave me a comment, would you please give me your e-mail address so I can add it to my address book.

You have no idea how inspiring it is to see pictures of people outside in January in short sleeves. It gives me hope that winter can't last forever, although looking out my window right now you'd never believe it.
