WWKIP – We Did It!

13 June 2010

One of my first thoughts after my accident was WWKIP (honestly!).  I was in the middle of organising everything and how was I going to get it all together in time.  Then I had the usual fears (paranoia?) about whether anyone would turn up.

So how did it go?   

Firstly, I called on friends to help.  Thank you so much Tia and Kate for all your help. 

Secondly, I hardly had to ask anyone for prizes – individuals and companies contacted me to donate wonderful knitting goodies. 

Yarn Magazine came up trumps by sponsoring the event.  And Mosman Needlecraft gave us a fantastic, very expensive, basket of wonderful gifts as our main prize. 

And thirdly, the knitters and crocheters of Sydney turned out – 92 of them! 

This was probably the longest day of activity I’ve had in the last few weeks and boy was I tired.  But I loved every minute of it and I hope everyone else enjoyed the day.

  1. You did a fantastic job of organising everything Sally, it was a lovely day, and extremely well run!

    Thanks for all your hard work.

  2. I had a great day Sally and hope you did too. Thanks so much for organising, and thanks to Tia and Kate too for helping. Like you, I haven’t seen many of my knitting friends for a while (or been out of the house much either) so it was lovely to get together with so many knitters. Thanks again.

  3. I’m so glad it went so well – I was quite worried about whether you’d be in a fit state for it. 92 was a terrific turnout! And thanks to your helpers.

  4. Thanks Sally for all your work to make yesterday so enjoyable. Everything seemed to go so well. Thanks too to Kate and Tia. All so well done.

  5. I wanted to come! Sadly, I live in Victoria, and can’t really run off on my three little kids for the day… sigh!! Ü

  6. Hey Sally – it was great to see you yesterday. I could really tell that you were invigorated by the crowd and the wonderful atmosphere. Wonderful successful day!

  7. It was a wonderful day – so brilliantly organised! Thanks to everyone who helped and who donated the prizes. Great to see you up and about Sally – hope you have recovered, it was a long day.

  8. Glad it went well. We ususally go away for the June long weekend so I’ve never been to any of them!

    Congratulations to you!
