Worldwide Knit in Public Day - Knitting at Tim Horton's

I know many of you already knit a lot in public so you were probably doing this today to celebrate. I don't knit too often in public, I guess it is my own issues that keep me from doing so. I don't normally like to stand out in public so doing anything that attracts attention to me makes me feel nervous.

This morning after I went for a nail refill I decided to be brave and go for it. I bought my Xlarge coffee and a muffin and found a nice table in the sunlight and went for it. It was liberating! You know what, I don't even think people noticed or paid any attention to me, yay!  For an introvert it helped me feel less uncomfortable to be alone in the coffee shop. I normally don't do that.

I think knitting in public is a great way for me to get out and have this alone time when it's needed or if I'm going to be out by myself for shopping etc.

This is the Boneyard shawl I'm knitting for myself in Berocco Ultra Alpaca. I've named it Hazy Shade of Winter as it reminds me of a cloudy winter day. I love the pattern, very simple so it's great for t.v. knitting and it also just has a classic look to it.
