Happy Worldwide Knit in Public Day!

Worldwide Knit in Public Day

Happy Worldwide Knit in Public Day, everyone!

Knitty First Fall issue is out

Whether you are actually out and about with your knitting today or at home, this is the perfect day to knit in company. Incidentally, this is also the day the latest Knitty magazine is out, so check out the new patterns! (I can't believe it's already the autumn issue. It's not even summer yet.) Maybe you've even cast on one of them especially for today?

To MAGA or not to MAGA

You may have heard about Karin Aida's latest hat pattern that has been causing quite a stir! If you are a Trump supporter, it definitely isn't for you, as the name makes clear: the Not for Trump Fans Hat piqued everyone's interest and the comment section is quite something to behold. It's very different from the usual comments you find on pattern pages and in a way I am disappointed that it now reads like all other political comment threads, but that was inevitable, I suppose. So if you fancy a peek, go ahead and remember the popcorn.

Your thoughts

Let me know what you've knitted today and if you have knitted in public. Leave your comments here or find me on Twitter @KnittyNadia. 

Speaking of Twitter

On Thursday evenings at 7:30 (UK time) you can join me and other knitters for our weekly #knittinghour chat. We're just a small bunch who like to talk about yarn and all sorts of other things going on in our lives at the moment. It is promo-free, so there won't be any unwanted spam.
