A Knitters Picnic

It was World Wide Knit in Public Day on Saturday, and our knitting club had a picnic to celebrate.


We were really lucky to have great weather for it and spent many happy hours knitting and meeting all the people who had heard about the event and come along to join in. The local radio station popped by to interview us, the local paper took some photos and some lovely people from a local cafe came along and served free teapigs tea for all us thirsty knitters (so yummy!).



Lots of passers by came over to chat to us, too, and I think we're going to feature in the photo albums of lots of the tourists visiting Gloucester Cathedral that day!

(Many thanks to Esther, who took the photos)

What an amazing location...that looks like so much fun! Your blog layout looks really nice, by the way. Did you re-do it?

Thanks Margeaux - yes, I've been giving the blog a bit of a revamp today as Blogger has just added some lovely new design options! :)
