knitting in public

This coming week is World Wide Knit in Public Day! (I know. It used to be just on one specific Saturday, but it “now takes place from the second Saturday to the third Sunday of June each year; making it a week long celebration of knitting and other fiber arts”.)

I don’t knit in public as much as I used to, my commute no longer involves trains only a flight of stairs. I do try to work in public whenever I can, and I almost always have a project with me.

A pair of socks often shared my train seat with my tom bihn co-pilot (I reviewed that bag here).

I used to knit quite a bit during my commute. I sometimes miss that regular distraction-free knitting time.
