WWKIP Day

So Saturday was World Wide Knit in Public Day. I celebrated first by knitting some in front of South Gate in Naju:

This is one of the four main gates (one for each direction) in Naju. If it looks familiar, it's because I took a ton of pictures of it in December and put them up on the blog :oP

For dinner, we went out for pizza and beer with our friend Ashley:

We ate a couple of pizzas at Little Fox. I also learned that while Korean Stout can't compare to Guiness, for around 4 dollars for a 2 liter, you can't beat the price! I'll try not to think about why it's so cheap :oP

So to show you what I was actually knitting this weekend, I'll give you some pictures. First, I started a new pair of monkey socks out of the Purple Iris colorway of Lorna's Laces. So glad I brought over a bunch of skeins of my favorite yarn:

I also knit a mitered square out of Noro. I brought one ball with me since all I had was one. I'll probably ship the finished squares home since they are for the Noro scrap blanket I started. Blankets are not very travel friendly, but the squares are easy to take along to work on and then send back.

Sorry the picture is blurry. It was morning, what else can I say?

I also made a makshift nostepinne out of a toilet paper tube this weekend and wound my very first hand-wound center pull ball:


I was quiet pleased with how it turned out considering it was my first attempt. I miss my ball winder though.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and did partake in some knitting in public.

Knit on...

While you were in Korea eating pizza, I was visiting my daughter's family in southern California and eating at a great Korean restaurant out in the middle of nowhere north of the San Bernardino Mountains. Hope you enjoyed your meal as much as I did mine.
