The Week in knit 11: Knit in Public Day!

First off, in my last post I mentioned possibly buying the Handknit Heroes t-shirt. Well it arrived, and I love it! I wore it to our knit in public day yesterday.

We went to the brick & mortar location of Uptown Stitches, which is normally an internet yarn store. But on special locations, proprietor Sheila lets people in, and I'm so glad she did!

We had lots of fun knitting out on the sidewalk.

She also arranged for us to dye yarn with Koolaid. Everyone did something different!

Some people soaked their yarn, others just sprayed it.

Then we wrapped it all up in seran wrap and steamed it.

Here it all is hanging to dry.

All in all it was a wonderful day and we all had a blast :) Did you Knit in Public? Leave me a comment and I'll draw a winner to receive this adorable project bag I bought while I was there.


  1. That was such fun!!! Do you have other pictures..I failed to get many..I did get a great one of you and everyone but Cynthia, but none of the process.
    I was very fascinated with the dyeing process and think I'd do again..but probably not on a large scale..I really want to take her class and work more with the acid dyes and see how they 'grab me'
    Did you ever use the box of dye you won with the 'loot from Sedalia'?..I bought that from Shelia and added it..with an ulterior motive..thinking I may see how it worked later by the *winner.*
    See you on Tuesday..yeah twice in one week..a lucky stretch for me.
    ps..I don't expect to win your bag..I just wanted to comment..I actually bought one of those when I went to her open house and gifted to know I feel so sorry for Dana...poor Gal has no Bags:))

  2. Love the t-shirt. That's awesome! The yarn dying looks like so much fun too!
