June Knitting, WWKIP and a sneaky extra May date

Dear all

The knitting dates for June are set out below, together with details about Worldwide Knit in Public Day. As always everyone is welcome to come to any session they fancy.

We've added an extra date for May; Sunday 30 May, 2pm onwards (or earlier if you get hungry), Devonshire Arms; Devonshire Road, CAMBRIDGE. This is because we have a 5th weekend in the month, and also because an impromptu Sunday knitting for my birthday last month was so very pleasant and repeating the experience seemed like a good idea. The roast beef is highly recommended; but everyone else's food looked lovely too!

Worldwide Knit In Public Day (WWKIP), Saturday 12 June

There are two options so far for WWKIP Day:

The Town and Country fair on Parkers Piece meeting from 13.00 at the four lamps, or alternatively Reality Checkpoint, (dead centre of Parker's Piece) within easy seating distance. Look for some bunting and Clare's blue bike with red and white polka dots on it, which will make it easier to find us. If rain arrives, we will be in The Avery Pub, the only one on Parker's Piece. Bring a picnic, your knitting, whatever you like. There will not be seating provided, so if you want something to sit on, other than the floor, please bring it with you. There are plenty of food stalls and facilities so if you don't want to bring stuff you can get it there.

Waterbeach Feast, Waterbeach - people will be there from around 12:30; the Parade is at about 2; there are Entertainments including a brass band, "hands on science from Mad Science", demonstrations by the Army (they did a brilliant emergency-bridge-building demo last year!); and various stands with plants, home-made cakes, and so on. The theme this year is "Something beginning with D..." Not sure yet where we'll be on the Green because stalls haven't been allocated. If you want more information please contact Liz on liz@lizmarley.co.uk. Pics of the event from 2007 here.

It is probably best to get the train to Waterbeach as parking gets pretty fraught and the buses get badly held up in the traffic... But if you're driving, mail Liz (see above); there are places you can park without getting in the way.

Jackie will be sending out the email information once every month (and it will then also be uploaded to the blog and Ravelry - see below). If you find out about something that you think others would be interested in please let her know by (about) 20th of the previous month at jackier at rippeth dot org
