We had our WWKIP 2009 in Pisa, Italy on Saturday 13th June at the yarn local shop ‘Sheep Shop’.
It was so nice, we really had fun. Luciana, the shop owner, was really kind and helped us set the tables and chairs. We brought with us some of the works done and the baby knit wear our group (Knittable – knittable.blogspot.com) knitted for the babies who are living in the tents after the terrible earthquake that occurred 6th April 2009 in L’Aquila, Abruzzo, Italy (We are going to send them to Rosella, who lauched and coordianted the initiative “A Blanket for the Kids in Abruzzo”) . I want to point out that the Italian fancy yarn company Effe-Elle sent us 20 kg. of beautyfull yarnto knit this stuff. Thank ou Carlo and Massimo!
Although the WWKIP 2009 has been widely promoted in town on-line, on the press and radio not many new people turned up by many others passed by and where really happy to get to know that the is a group of knitters who meets on Thursdays in town!
