A Little Bit Jealous
There were two WWKIP events in Riverside. The first was held in a local mall environment and thanks to the great management at the Galleria, the knitters were center stage in center court. Unfortunately I could not attend, but the guild put up a display, yarn and needles were donated and introduction to knitting took place.
I did attend the second WWKIP day on Saturday. We gathered at an outdoor shopping center and did our thing for over three hours. Kudos to the center and local merchants!
The attendance was a mix of guild members and customers of our two local yarn stores. Knitting With Sandra and Designer Hand Knits both had goodies for the attendees. Riverside is a friendly place and both owners, Sandra and Nancy, could be seen chatting about yarns, patterns, the retail business and shared customers. Those two can be living proof that coopetition is more than just game theory.
There was more than just knitting and crocheting action. Many attendees were dressed in their finery - and thus the reason for the title of this post.
Yep. I'm a little bit jealous of all the talent.
