Knitting in Public - 2011

International Knitting in Public Day was last weekend, so while my brother and I were having a rare day out together in Melbourne City I got him to take a picture of me doing some knitting in public :-)
This picture was taken in Hosier Lane in the CBD of Melbourne. It is an ever changing, evolving public gallery of street art. And it's a very popular place to use as a back drop for all sorts of photography & film. While we were there on Saturday there were two couples having their wedding pictures taken :-)
It's sort of hard to see what I'm knitting, but it is the beginning of a braided i-cord necklace, made using gorgeous cherry red organic cotton. I'll show you some pictures of the finished object soon :-) I'm also wearing a cardigan that I made myself last week :-)
Have you seen anyone knitting in public lately? Have you done some public knitting? Do you knit on the train/bus/tram? Do people ask you about it when you're knitting in public?
