"Can I Play With You Guys?"
Remember when you were young and you approached a bunch of kids you didn't know and asked if you could play?
I did that, more or less, with a World Wide Knit in Public Day event in Halifax. A group that meets regularly got use of a public library lawn and posted the details on Ravelry which is where I, the tourist, found out about them. They were great. I found a place at the edge of the group and spun on my spindle and said hello. Everyone was knitting. They talked to me about yarn they spin, fibre they dye, and fibre that's locally available.
