Knitting in public

This time without a DPN stuck in my hair!

So I wandered out of my house today and finished my sock at my fave coffee shop. Yes, it's a chain, but I still love it. And they have free Wi-Fi so now I'm blogging in public too. My sock is done, but I don't have my camera. I'll post a pic when I get home. I'm definitely improving with this sock thing. My kitchener stitch looks a whole lot better this time around. I think it's because of the step by step instructions I found here. Page 6 has the kitchener stitch with some great pics to illustrate the process. I also found a darning needle in my grandmother's sewing box which works a lot better than the giant plastic tapestry needle I used on the last pair of socks. This thing it nice and small so it fits through the stitches a lot better. I'm a tight knitter, so the plastic one was hard to get through the stitches and stretched everything out.

Ann at Mason Dixon Knitting has fallen down the rabbit hole and started sock knitting. Go over to welcome her and check out her awesome first sock.

Get the word out about Worldwide Knit in Public day, June 10. Check to see what's planned in your area. If nothing is, start something!

Guido from the It's a Purl, Man podcast is going to be chatting with LYS owners and wants to know what questions you would ask.
