Knit In Public

Did everyone know that it's Worldwide Knit In Public day?
I did, but had no plans to do so. Until I walked out of John Lewis in Welwyn Garden City today and found the KIP tent with a lot of lovely ladies making tiny hats for Innocent drinks. Go here to find out more about their charitable efforts for the elderly of the U.K.
There was also a lady with a MASSIVE pair of needles made from broomsticks. She very kindly allowed me to try them out. They were quite difficult to manoeuvre to begin with, but I could see it being addictive once you got the hang of it.
Above, Teddy is holding the tiny hat I made with RYC cashsoft.
