Day 2 at the Fair

Day 2 at the fair was another successful day.  Amanda and Wendy helped me out at the booth so there was lots of knitting going on!  We were able to show people socks knit using magic loop, colour work mitts on dpns, a knitted doily on a circular needle, the Purlshell stitch pattern knit out of alpaca and a double knit blanket.
 
 
 
 
The Charity Scarf Challenge project had lots of people stop and knit a few rows on it.


 
This scarf project is teaching a lot of people how to knit the knit stitch!
 


 
We met a lot of wonderful people yesterday and heard lots of great stories about their knitting.  One of my favourite Knitters of the day was an eight year old girl that came to the booth with her parents. She wanted to knit.  I showed her how to do the knit stitch and she did some stitches on our charity scarf.  Later in the evening she had her parents bring her back so she could see how much more had been knit on the scarf. They were surprised to see that we had knit through a few more colour changes since they had been here last.  As she did some more knitting we found out that her Dad is the Knitter in her family. Now that she has been bitten by the knitting bug, I hope that she and her Dad  make lots of wonderful memories knitting together.

Another lovely story. It's awesome to hear that she came back to see how much more was knit! Like you I hope she has the bug now :)
