Each year there is a Knit in Public Day and whilst I think that's fantastic as an idea, surely we should be making an effort to get out there and show off as much as possible?
The items I've listed below have all been worked on in public.... have a look and see if any of the places I've mentioned are place's you've been seen showing off your skills!
|At a Ladies Coffee Morning / Craft and Support Group|
|A & E Unit, Communal Gardens|
|Design (c) French Beans and Toast - on the lawns of a holiday camp|
|At a Craft Fair and Hospital Waiting areas|
I've also crafted on a hospital ward whilst visiting my Dad, who decided to nod off, in friend's houses, sat in the car by the beach, in Starbucks and on so many roadsides whilst collecting my "no idea of the time" daughter. I've also come across a knitting group in my local Ikea!
Sometimes you get "funny looks", and others you get lovely people, kids included coming up and having a chat. Its a great way to meet other crafters, share ideas and encourage each other. the trip to Starbucks with a friend for stitching and "escaping bank holiday family" was made all the more special by a little girl coming over to tell us all about her stitching and have a go at putting the odd stitch into our work too!
I wonder if any of the "June Bugs" featured below have ever worked in public?
As I've listed this lovely pink bag today, I've been trawling through the stunning makes on Folksy to find a selection that are simply "Pretty In Pink"
