Knit in Public day 2009 Glasgow style

Yesterday was World wide knit in public day. In previous years, various things have prevented me from taking part but this year, various Glasgow based knitters joined together to have a knitters' picnic in Kelvingrove park in Glasgow. Prior to the event, the weather reports were unpromising and rain was suggested. However, the weathermen and women got it wrong yet again and it was a sunny and warm day.

Umbrellas were surprisingly used as parasols and cupcakes were eaten.

And a thrown yarn prize from Karie after the planned yarn and spoon race was cancelled due to no one being able to move after all the cupcakes and other food.

All in all, a great day and it looks likely to happen again, hopefully some time later in the summer.
