World Wide Knit In Public Day-2009

Get your hooks and needles out. This month for all yarn lovers and crafty crocheters and knitters-we are celebrating World Wide Knit In Public Day. It's also not exclusively for just knitters, crocheters are welcome. I'm in fact is a crocheter. Taught by my grandmother and older sis, by the way.
This year WWKIP is being celebrated for 2 weekends in June this year. The holiday is usually held on only one Saturday in June. It also depends on whose hosting it. They pick the time, place and other activities for the event. So this year WWKIP is being celebrated on these dates, one which has already passed. That was, June 13 & 14, 2009 [Saturday & Sunday]. The last one is going to be tomorrow June 20 & 21, 2009. For a schedule or if you would like to find out if a WWKIP is being hosted near you, go here: Tomorrow I plan to attend a World Wide Knit In Public and crochet to my hearts content.
So those of you who knit and/or crochet, grab your knitting needles, crochet hooks, your yarn(s) and your (WIP's) 'work in progress' along with your sister, grandmother and mother-or maybe your husband. O.K. yeah right. Like the men are actually gonna come out and sit and knit with us gals. But hey who knows, they are men who knits or crochets. They make really nice things to, really they do. Bet you all didn't know that Rosie Grier knits. Also check out Lion Brand Notebook Blog here. Scroll down to the heading; "More Famous Men Knitting: Cary Grant" and you will be amazed. You can find it here,
If you can't make it to a hosted WWKIP or one is not near you. Crochet or knit in public right in your front yard. Or if your going out some where take your needles and/or hooks with you and work on your project if you get a chance or waiting on or for someone. Another idea also is go to a Starbucks, a local book store-like Barnes & Nobles, a park or a (LYS) Local Yarn Store and knit/crochet there. All of those places count as public. You'll be amazed at how much on-lookers you'll and people asking questions.
Knitting, crocheting yarn crafting, crafting in general or even baking are all hobbies and pasttimes that we enjoy and it helps us to destress, relax and calm our minds. It's actually a gift to be able to these things, because it really helps us to enjoy life. So whatever craft or hobby you like to do, take the time or a day for that matter and celebrate the joy you get out of it. Actually I recommend we should do it everyday, but for those who can't meet that quota, at least do it once a month. Enjoy Life, and enjoy Serenity.
Have a "Happy World Wide Knit (and Crochet) In Public Day" this weekend.
Peace & Love everybody

A Good Place To Go For a Vacation

These are some of the places that are right in my back yard. For me it's only hop skip and a jump to ger there. If your ever planing on vacationing, you should check out Broadway At The Beach. This place is filled and fueled with fun.
The best part in my opinon is the Ripley's Aquarium they have there. Unbelievable sea creatures, it will knock your socks off. It's really serene and beautiful. Myrtle Beach has a lot of tourist attractions and actions-you'll love it and you may not want to leave. The other attraction I like about Broadway At The Beach is the cute ducks. I was trying to get there picture and they were running away from me. I walked up to them as gently as I could. But they weren't buying it.

This is the beautiful water inside the park at (BWATB) Broadway At The Beach, and the other buildings and shop within it. There are so many shops there. Clothing, lingere, bake, spas, etc. You name it they got it.

My son, dad and mom. It's so much to see here.

This ice cream shop is on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. Oh trust me when you get on Ocean Blvd. you won't be able to visit the many stores and shops hey have there. It's simply so grand.

A place to sit and enjoy the scenery. One of the many hotels on Ocean Blvd. to stay on your vacation.

The natural attraction besides the ducks and BWATB is the beautiful flowers.

My son was so amazed at the many things to look at and you can't see them all in one day.

More ducks.

This duck was very photogenic. It looked like it was actually waiting long enough for me to take it's picture. Believe it or not-this duck actually didn't move until I finished taking it's picture. I would say this was a smart duck. "Watch out Daffy, you've got competetion.
What can I say, more ducks again.O.K. maybe I'm just too fascinated by ducks, but hey, they were all over the place. Family and all. I thought they were adorable though.

So that's some of what I did during this summer. There are more place I hope to visit and take a vacations there.
What are you all doing for summer or what are your summer plans? Hope you all enjoy it and I hope you all have a safe summer.
Peace & Love

Daily Life Quote

"So much of our time is preparation, so much is routine, and so much retrospect, that the path of each man's genius contracts itself to a very few hours"
-Ralph Waldo Emerson-

Take a little quantity and quality time for yourself. With all the preparation, routine and such you deserve extra time for it.

Have a happy weekend and a great week. I'll be chatting with you all soon.

Peace & Love
