Or for you non-knitters out there, interweb knitspeak for Knitting In Public.
My cold is quite a lot better, and one of the best antidotes for 3 or 4 days of feeling like a shut-in is sitting in a beer garden, on a suprisingly summery Autumn afternoon, with beers, knitting and good conversation. Try it next time, I'll show you how to cast on and get started if you need it. I always enjoy the pub knitting at The Courthouse Hotel, but yesterday was a great mix of the weather, a lovely visitor from San Diego, a good mix of people, and just sheer joy at getting out of the house and sitting in the sun. Good times.
