Last Saturday many knitters around the world celebrated their craft by knitting in public spaces. The Scandinavian Society of Nova Scotia invited crafters to join them at the beautiful Public Gardens. The weather cooperated this year and it was lovely — there were small gifts, homemade treats, and lots of happy chatter.
There was live music performed by Musikanska Vänner (Musical Friends)
There were at least 6 children working on their own projects. My children used finger knitting and loom knitting techniques.
I started a new pair of socks for my son and they are turning out nicely. It’s a self-patterning yarn (Patons Kroy) and I truly enjoy it.
The Public Gardens provided spectacular scenery for this event. This Rhododendron looks like a green mountain covered with pink flowers, it’s at least two-stories-high.
The flower beds have their own charm, I love the mix of domestic and wild flowers.
Thank you to all creative people who organized and supported this event! And to all my readers — enjoy the spectacular outdoors and bring your knitting with you wherever you go this summer. Let’s not limit knitting in public to one day a year!
