Yarn Bombing/Knit in Public Day

Saturday, June 7 was Yarn Bombing day and the start of Knit in Public week. 

The Port Stanley library wanted to expand on their yarn bombing display from last summer and had put out a call for knit or crochet buntings.

Through one of the library's programs a group of young girls had started finger knitting and created this tent to be part of the yarn bombing display.

As for the buntings, it is estimated that between community knitters and local knitting groups there were around 400 donated!


 There were enough to string around the library and into the park beside them.

There were more buntings inside the library,
and this is the view out the back window of the library!
A few of us from the Knitting Goddesses guild went down to spend the day knitting and to look for the buntings that we had knit.

 Even on a sunny June day, there were knitters wearing their hand knit socks.

 Just because the official knitting at the library finished at noon, that didn't stop us from carrying on at one of the local restaurants,

Then down at the beach for the rest of the afternoon.

 You can't get a day much better than this!
