World Wide Knit in Public Day 2009 at Shall We Knit?, originally uploaded by The Bees.
I’ve just come in from the riotous fun at Shall We Knit? (my favourite LYS). It’s World Wide Knit in Public Day, and SWK turned the day into a fundraiser for breast cancer research. Karen (the owner) made up these enormous needles, and teams of three were encouraged to get sponsorships and compete to see who could knit the most stitches within a 5-minute time limit. We didn’t win, but we did contribute to the nearly $2000 that SWK raised, and we certainly had fun!
The rest of the photos (and one slightly sea-sickening video) are up on Flickr, here.
