We Picnic-ed & Knit in Public. Here's Proof.

Once again BLKG Picnic Day was drizzly and overcast and cool.  Once again we met at Echota Gardens south of DePere in the little lodge.  Once again those in attendance had good food, good company, and a great time.  We missed you.

On Worldwide Knit in Public Day June 18 a hardy band of knitters planted themselves on the City Deck along the Fox River in downtown Green Bay and enjoyed the fine weather (inching into the diminishing shade as the hours passed) and the attention of passersby.  One guy took pictures of our new sign to show his knitter wife and another woman stopped so excited to find some knitters to play with.  (we got her contact info and will invite her to a meeting)  It was such a nice morning that we're kicking around the idea of knitting there one Saturday a month until the snow flies, maybe moving closer to the Farmer's Market to grab a little more attention.  What do you think?
