WWKIP Day

Last Saturday we decided to go on the same regular trip along the Rochdale canal (this time the bit between Rochdale and Todmorden) , basically because we've got no car at the moment, and getting anywhere around the canal by bus is easy enough.

Obviously got my knitting with me this time, in order to celebrate the Knitting in Public Day.

Right, that's how it started. A bit deserted, isn't is? Maybe this was the point where I realized it was the wrong choice of trip :).




And here is me, in the field, after one hour of walking - determined to knit a few rows for my new Japanese top (and still hoping for some public to turn up).




Well, it wasn't all so bad after all - in the end I had two ducks and their chicks watching it, a few sheep on the hill plus a fisherman nearby.
Really - it should be good enough for Yorkshire Knitting in Public Day.

That looks so, so, English! I will be in England in August--hope I can find a lovely field to knit in also.

Oh, I meant to say that KnitChart bears a close resemblance to Knit Visualizer, except it doesn't have a parser. And KV is very expensive.

Dear Silvia--

I hope you do make your Fair Isle program available!

I will be in London about 8/18, going to Bath for a week around 8/25. Love to meet up with you, if possible!
