Crochet, Knit, and Stitch in Public Day was held on Saturday, June 14, from 11-3, and was hosted by our group. The idea for the event actually started as a knitting event called WWKIP, which stands for “World Wide Knit in Public”. In an effort to bring crochet together with other stitchers, we renamed the event to suit our needs. We were one of 785 events planned for this day.
Five of our members were there, and we were also joined by two members of the Knit Topeka group. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. The morning was cool and pleasant, and the event wrapped up before the heat of the day set in. Other than a couple of bugs here and there and the birds overhead, all was perfect. We did our stitching, ate our lunch, and talked about crochet and knitting.
We hope to repeat this event next year, and maybe by then, the turnout will be even greater.

And we were also blessed with the presence of the famous Happy Uterus, created by member, Jenn:
This lil’ guy…er, gal…made a cameo appearance in a magazine. It always seems to make people smile.
