WWKIP day 2009

For World Wide Knit in Public day we joined the Knitch crowd at the Park Tavern which is right next to this lovely park smack dab in the middle of Midtown Atlanta. This is Piedmont Park.

This park seems like it has been in Atlanta forever but it has recently gotten a little bit of a face lift. Behold the fancy new water park! If you are a long time Atlantan like me, you know that the pool at Piedmont Park has looked like nothing more than a huge, yukky, cement hole for a very long time. I was amazed with the transformation! They have built it very green too - check out the solar panels!!

We had a small but fun crowd at Park Tavern (where the food was YUMMY I might add). One of our major events of the day was helping Kim, who owns Knitch, to untagle her tangled bamboo. Most people helped - Regan and I just took pictures and laughed. Isn't that terrible? Luckily, my husband is the "helpful type". If you see the beer in the background you can clearly see how the problem started.

I get extra points for scoring this picture of Regan.

I did absolutely NO knitting on wwkip day. See? That's me with my knitting bag beside me and no knitting in my hands. Dudes, it was too hot and humid to knit! I do, however, have a tasty, frosty beer!

Check this out. Here is Regan modeling her Shipwreck Shawl! Trust me. The picture does not do this justice - it turned out beautifully!

Frisbee pictures tomorrow!
