WWKIP, Chicago style

Knitting in handNature smiled on us today. When I woke up this AM, it was to the sound of rain beating against the windows. But, as the time drew near to leave for World Wide Knit in Public Day, the rain stopped and the sun started to peek through the clouds.

It was a lovely day to sit in Millenium Park and knit.
Knitters galoreThe day was delightfully cool, which allowed knitters to wear their hand knits very comfortably.
Lots of knittersSweaters, socks, shawls, and scarves of all kinds were oohed and ahhed over.
The orange shawlYarns and patterns were discussed. New friends were made.
Chatting with AidanWe all enjoyed the day so much that we may just have a monthly gathering in Millenium Park during the summer months.

Special thanks to Aidan for organizing this wonderful day, and to my husband Mark for taking such fabulous photos. There are many more available in the Chicago WWKIP set of my Flickr account.
