K is for KIP

Did you KIP on WWKIP day? My plan was to go to the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where there were knitters planning to be in the pavilions.

But after walking up and down the boardwalk, I couldn't find them and it was hot! So I went back to Allison's shop where I knew there would be someone knitting on her front porch. And there was.

Of course Allison was there knitting a sock.

But I also met Michelle who was on vacation with her husband. He was fishing and Michelle was working on a sock.

Dorothy also had a sock going out of beautiful hand-dyed yarn. Her DIL Kate does this at Dragonfly Fibers . It was just gorgeous and so soft.

Then Nicki showed up, she was test driving some needles.

With Nicki was her daughter Tammy who had the most beautiful lace weight yarn.

But the best was Tammy's son Robert who was crocheting a blanket and an amigurumi.

Afterwards, Mr. Truck and I relaxed with some of these.

I was working on a sock but it wouldn't cooperate so I made a baby bonnet instead.

Looks like there were a lot of socks going on! Really, we all do KIP a lot, but having a special day means that you get to do it with other people!

Wow, tons of socks! Looks like you had a wonderful day and I love the little boy crocheting. How awesome is that? Oh and I have to add that Dragonfly Fibers has just gorgeous stuff. I have one of her skeins and can't wait to get my hands on more! :)

Oh, it looks like such fun! I didn't get to KIP on Saturday as we were buying my mum a new TV. Wish I had though!

Looks like the good time was had by all.

Glad you found some 'real' knitting friends. I totally forgot about KIP day. I don't think there were any special get-togethers here.

LOL, I am wondering how you turn a sock into a baby bonnet.

Your snack looks so refreshing!
