Picknit in Glasgow

I was in Glasgow yesterday, meeting up with the Glasgow Picknitters, Jessica and Casey from Ravelry and Ysolda Teague.We were between 80 and 90 knitters I was told. I had a marvellous day!!

Here are some photos...! First we went for a little trip to The Clockwork Orange..(the Glasgow underground)

The picknit boss Johanna and the "boy-knitter"..I have no idea what his name was...

We were 12-ish knitters on board..including my 6 years old daughter:)

The two "boy-knitters" as Johanna called them...

Back by the Kibble Palace, I met several people I's Alice:)

Ever so yummy, these cakes...whenever she does open her cafeshop..I'll be in for a sitting

Ysolda , Jessica and Casey right behind Jessica..the only people standing up;)

Casey, Jessica, TheYarnCake and Johanna- the Picknit organiser
Casey dished out Pimms, Jessica Strawberries and we got lots of cake..!

And this is among all the was one of the warmest days in July, so I found it slightly difficult to knit a winter shawl...! Had fun though

My 6 years old daughter taking overYsolda's blanket;) and helping to hand out Ravelry badges

The rest of the park was full of non knitters too...!
Lovely bunch of Glasgow knitters
