Wild Wet Knits in Public
It was a wild and wet knit in public day for Sydney. As many other blogs have already reported ( here, here and here) it was a very good turn out considering the bad weather.
There were lots of Internet acquaintances finally able to meet in person. I loved the synchronicity when I recognised the Central Park Hoodie of Michelle who was then able to meet David, the recipient of her recording of his podcast's theme music. (See here for the actual moment captured on film courtesy of the quick shutter finger of M-H.)
I've finally got back home to the warmth of the mountain cottage today after spending the long weekend in Sydney. The slightly chaotic K.I.P of Saturday was followed by a day of Haircare Product launch in the Studio. I'm glad I get paid to do this because there is no way I would have voluntarily stayed in the same room as all those sulky, skinny, models. We were wondering if their bad attitude is due to lack of a decent meal?
The day wasn't wasted because I did get to take home a show bag with some product in it. Why can't there be more Knitcare product launches with show bags full of goodies?
I can't complain about winning goodies though - especially after I scored another prize (some DPN's and Rare Fire Jewel yarn) from Yarn magazine for answering this anniversary questionaire. Thank you again, Yarn Mag. That's the most I've won for the past 20 years, despite being a regular $2.00 Jackpot lottery buyer. I hope I haven't used up all my luck!
