SHEEP THRILLS: Wolly Goodies while I am gone.( tips)

I thought this Sweater was cheeky and inspiring.. what kind of “Sheep Thrills ” are you lining up for yourself this summer. What are your plans for World Wide Knit In Public Day 14 June – 22 June 2014  what are your Plans? Picnic? Knitting BBQ?

If you haven’t thought about.. I encourage you to plan something thrilling!

1.Maybe organize something with your Local yarn store.. in the front end of the store.

2. Plan a knitting  potluck or Have  a BBQ at the Beaches

3.  Ride the subway with fried all day and knitting till your heart’s content. share with everyone who askes ” what are you doing”.

4. Call the Admin at your local  Women shelter and plan a little something with a bunch of your Yarnie Friends. Everyone can pitch in the buy several skein acrylic yarns( or Berroco)/needles and teach a few ladies who might be interested in this relaxing hobby.

5.Just sit on your own quietly and combine your knitting with meditation.. meaning all you do is knit something simple like stockinette, no talking whatever and spend a few hours just listening only to your breath. Paying attention to how and where your breath moves through your body. Knitting in gratitude that on this fine day you are alive and well!

Share with me when you have planned?????

ciao for now
