Or, alternatively, What I Do When I Leave Both My Camera Cable and Hard Drive at Home (which I totally did, and which sucks, since the Kool-Aid yarn has come to me in the mail – thanks, Wendi – and I can’t show it to you, although I have some excellent photos of it).

So in lieu of that, here’s your Knitterly Service Announcement:

It’s Worldwide Knit In Public Day this Saturday! You have to go out and represent, people. Last year, a bunch of folks went to IKEA and knit, and I was in L.A. knitting in between press checks (so I sort of participated). This time around, I think that the Chickengoddess and I have many plans to knit in the most absurd places we can think of, for example, in front of the Armani store and possibly Tiffany’s in Phipps Plaza. Then? Who knows? I’m sure we’ll come up with something fantastic. I think there’s a large Knitch contingent that is knitting in Piedmont Park, but since this past Saturday I spent all day outdoors in the god-awful heat, I don’t think I want to repeat that experience in the park (I have never been so grateful for air conditioning in my whole life). As it is, I’ll probably be only knitting socks, because anything else feels oppressively hot. Including (perhaps especially) the Super-Secret project.

I’ll post photos afterward. It’s sure to be an amusing experience, even vicariously.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
