My WWKIP day!

We had a great turnout for "World Wide Knit In Public day".

First place we went to was the Storehouse Deli. I got to wear my lovely February Lady Sweater.

See! :)

We stayed for around 4 hours. I had 4 large latte's, 1 double ristretto and 1 Chai Tea Latte. Needless to say, I had a bit of energy to burn. Maybe it's not so surprising that I finished knitting Jayden's birthday vest. Lol!

More photo's of the vest on My Ravelry page.

I used 1/2 a ball of Knitspirations 12 ply yarn and knitted it with 5mm needles. It came out beautifully. I changed the pattern too. I was supposed to do ribbing around the neck and arm holes, but I decided to do double crochet! It turned out great.

Later on that day, we all met up at Gelatissimo for ice-cream, coffee and affogato. Because my body had decaffeinated by that time of the day, I had to have a cappuccino! We then moved on to the Indian restaurant and had our main meals. We then took a leisurely stroll up to the teppanyaki bar. We decided that we would skip the entree's and went back to Gelatissimo for more ice-cream.

Here we all are at Gelatissimo at the end of the night.

While we were at gelatissimo, Kylie gave me a little present. It's a needle case - the perfect size for a pair of knitpicks. Isn't se so clever? The mushrooms are so darling, they remind me of being a Brownie Guide. :)

All up, it was a lovely day and it was so nice to get to spend all of that time with my friends. :)

Yay - glad to see that you had a great time - bummer that I could not be there for the morning knitting fun - and glad that you like the little case - it was so much fun to make and now have to make myself one.
