WWKIP 2011 Federation Square : Melbourne

June 11, 2011

What a truly fantastic day we had at Federation Square in Melbourne today.  Our small contingent of five from our Pubknitters group joined the hundreds of other erstwhile knitters and yarnbombers gathered to bring their secret lives out into the public eye in a bold display of solidarity.  It was a lovely sunny winter day although quite chilly.  That, however, didn’t stop the many women, men and children participating – and what fun we had – to the great bemusement of the many onlookers.  Being Jazz Week in Melbourne, we were lucky enough to be able to knit and groove simultaneously … a small challenge, but one that was met with equanimity and swaying hips.  It should be noted that the day was organised and sponsored by the Australian Country Spinners who generously donated yarn, needles, pattern books and their time to the many gathered to create blanket squares for the Save the Children Fund.
