Two Worlds Collide

Wow, what a turnout!!!! I think we had over 30 some knitters. I had to laugh at the photos, (Iggy is posing like a stuffed animal on a couple, looking right into the camera.) Thanks to everyone that made this event a success!! We not only had WWKIP day but we had the kick off of Passport. Passport is a knitting Staycation, we are traveling the World through knitting. We are all given a Passport, and each Month we will knit something from a Country around the World ie: France/beret, Japan/Towashi fish, Ireland/Cables, Peru/Alpaca mittens and so on and so forth. The plan is to get knitters to try something new or to learn a new technique. It was so great because everyone was so willing to help beginners get started. You will have a Month to finish the projects which are pretty quick, and then you will get a stamp in your Passport for that Country. I am pleased to say I ran short of Passports, so this week I will be making more. It's not too late to join and we meet the second Saturday of the month for a new Country and you miss this you can come any time after that Saturday and pick up the Free Pattern and you purchase the yarn. It will be a lot of fun and you can get a head start on your Christmas presents. No project should be over $20 at most.
Thanks again for all the food, fun and sharing!!!! I hope you all had a good time.
