YG will be celebrating World Wide Knit in Public Day with a picnic potluck and knitting out on our front sidewalk. Our town’s local festival, Celebrate Charlotte, will be going on, with an arts and crafts fair going on across the street. Perfect for public knitting! YG will be providing hot dogs with all the trimmings, all we ask is that you bring a dish to pass to share with your fellow knitters. See you then!

Another adorable model for YG… the Wee One Welcome Set from Chris at Knitting at Knoon. It’s a basic top down sweater, hat and booties. It’s a great pattern to have on hand when you need a baby shower gift! And I love the yarn… it’s Noro, of course. I know, I know… not the most practical for a wee human, but I couldn’t resist. This yarn, Ayatori, practically screamed at me that it needed to be a baby item. Who am I to resist??
