Okay, I screwed up. Been so busy, I'm just now catching up on my blogging friends. Does it count if I've crocheted in public using a carry bag I knitted? If not, there's always next year. Thanks for sharing. (Please give two months' notice -- just for me -- next year.)

sharlene - I've given up on catching up ever. Definitely don't count on two month's notice here! Everything about this blog is I do it when I can. Unless of course someone starts paying me good money to do it! : ) It's funny that they have this day, because I always see people knitting and crocheting in public. I think it's more about enjoying the crafts with other people, and sometimes for a common public good or purpose. Maybe it should be more like Collaborative Crafting Day?
