New York Knit Out
Yes, for non-knitters, there really is such a thing, held annually in October in Union Square Park.
It was larger this year, with more local yarn vendors, though no yarn is sold (not sure why, maybe the sort of license the event has in a public park?) Exhibits, fashion shows, free technique classes, especially the absolute basics of knitting. I saw a few people I know from Internet lists and local gatherings (Hi Bruce and Ann!) and had dinner with Margaret Radcliffe, whom I've known since alt.arts.ballet days. We became fast friends when we realized we had so many overlapping interests.
Sorry, no photos, but Dad's sock made it to the heel turning, so I've started on the second sock. Knitting at about 9 sts/in is slow and I'll be less prone to "second sock syndrome" if I make them both concurrently.
