14 June 2008 was international Knit In Public day. There were events in my local area planned that I really wanted to take part in but unfortunately I had to fly to Boston that day. So I wore my Ravelry t-shirt to Schiphol and proceeded to KIP. I asked a total stranger to take my photo with my phone. She and her partner were sitting with Macs on their laps so I knew they were nice people willing to take a photo. I was actually kind of disappointed that no one recognized the t-shirt. Or should I say – no one came up to me and commented on either the t-shirt or the knitting. I was totally left alone in my KIPping. Ah well. Maybe next time.
It’s not my most flattering photo. I look really tired!
In Amsterdam there was a canal cruise planned for KIPpers. That would have been fun. In Haarlem there was a gathering planned in the city center. Next year I hope to be home to KIP with friends!
By the way, I’m writing this now from my hotel room in Burlington, MA. It’s 5am and I’ve already been up for 2 hours. Ain’t jet lag wonnerful? I flew on Saturday so that I could start to get used to the time difference before going to the office Monday morning and start giving training classes at 8:30am! That gives me Sunday to SHOP! Of course shops are open in the US on Sundays and I will take advantage. My first stop is Barnes and Noble since they open earliest. Then I’m off to Woolcott & Co. in Cambridge for some yarn shopping. I’m only supposed to buy for planned projects. I will really try to keep it down to “planned projects”. I’ll let you know if I succeed!
