It's nearly time!

There are only two more sleeps to go until the Wellington World Wide Knit in Public Day event at Victoria St Cafe and this is some of the great stuff I have to give away. There's silk yarn, merino yarn, cotton yarn, mohair yarn, laceweight yarn, DK yarn, and sock yarn. There are patterns, knitting needles, DPNs, and crochet hooks. There's all natural yarn and some purely synthetic yarn. There are solid colours and multi-coloureds. The list goes on. Phew!

I really hope some people come along, have a drink, do some knitting and take some of these goodies off me... Yesterday the event was linked from 'Moata's blog idle' post on which was fun, I don't normally read her blog but someone at work said, 'Hey Moata's blog on Stuff today talks about knitting, you might like it' and through the magic of the internet it was connected to Wellington WWKiP Day. Maybe that will encourage a couple more knitters along who might not normally know about it. The event is listed on Wotzon (I hate it when people spell things like that!), Eventfinder, Ravelry, and Facebook, but the basic details are:

When: Sunday 20th June, 1pm - 3pm
Where: Victoria St Cafe, corner Victoria and Bond Streets, Wellington
What: Bring your knitting and join us for a drink and the chance to win some fantastic yarn!

Also, a knitting treasure hunt being run by guerilla knitting collective, The 8th Canoe, will begin at 3pm from the Victoria St Cafe. It's raising money for the Wellington Women's Refuge (there's an info page here).

Ellen of the The 8th Canoe says, "The idea is you enter in teams of up to 3 (knitters, crocheters, or none of the above), with a gold coin donation per team member. This gives you the chance to compete for fabulous prizes from Minerva, Tiger Eye Beads and others to be confirmed, plus fun spot prizes."

If you're in Wellington you should definitely come along to one or both parts of the afternoon!
