Alison Milne reports back on World Wide Knit in Public Day at CEAC

I think it was because I took a spare brolly, change of clothes and a towel, that the forecast wet did not eventuate until after the last window went up!

Saturday 12 June was fun... mostly, we didn't have time to knit on the day, although Liz wandered around doing her bit (on our behalf) for the World Wide Knit in Public Day.

We covered a lot of 'out the front' of CEAC - goodness knows what else we could have done if we planned it! Bernie and Donna included us in their photographic essay of the day, and we did have bemused visitors snapping away too.

Thanks so much to Judy, Kara, Sandra, Lyn, Maureen, Chris, Karen, Maxine, Glen, Marlynne, Tom as we have knitted and crocheted our graffiti since February. And thanks to Martin and CEAC staff for encouragement....and trust that we wouldn't be 'inappropriate'!!

We don't intend stopping now, and have a new project in mind. So, if anyone out there would like to join us, in our respectful disrespectful use of 'soft' graffiti in public spaces, please turn up to the CEAC Meeting Room on alternate Fridays (starting June 18) 9.30am-12.30pm.
