That’s how many different people were photographed holding my first Tangled Up in Blue Sock when I took part in the New Brunswick Photo Scavenger Hunt for World Wide Knit in Public Day.

Well, sixteen including myself. Hey, I count, too, ya know.

This is a guide at the Carleton Martello Tower, who said, “I’ve worked here for five years and no one has ever asked me to hold a sock before.”

I was working on Saturday, so I missed most of the WWKIP Day festivities. I am looking forward to other people posting their scavenger hunt photos, since I didn’t get to see anybody else’s yet. I am dying to see what kind of wacky hijinks the New Brunswick knitters got up to!

Ria and the sock are all about the wacky hijinks. Here they are conspiring in front of a fiddlehead statue.

Ria: “I can’t believe we have a statue of a vegetable in town.”

The moose statue also got into the wacky hijinks.

Moose and sock!

Admittedly, the best wacky hijinks were committed by a group of Fredericton knitters who, Knitta-style, festooned parking meters, fire hydrants, statues, and the like with knitted items. I want to be them when I grow up.

I wanted to write a longer post, but yesterday I went biking for the first time since 1997. And the bike was too big for me. And now my butt hurts. So I’m going to sit (or possibly lie down) someplace more comfortable than this computer chair. With any luck, I’ll have time to post some more tomorrow. Feel free to check out the Yarns on York Flickr group, some of my scavenger hunt photos on Flickr, and the WWKIP Day 2008 photos on

Oh, and don’t forget about Boob Lady, who was happy to meet the sock. But then again, she’s awfully friendly to everybody.

I think other people call her the Hula Girl, but ever since I saw The Simpsons Movie, she’s been Boob Lady to me.
