This weekend there's lots going on! It's Lunenburg's 266th birthday
tomorrow and the whole town is celebrating Friday through Sunday with Be a Tourist in Your Own Town
events. You can find details about everything that's going on here: http://www.lunenburgcelebrates.ca
Saturday is also World Wide Knit in Public Day
. And it's kind of our 4th birthday
too (give or take a few days). So we've decided to celebrate by giving a gift with every purchase, and for every $20 spent before tax, you get an entry to win a gift card for $50.
On Saturday We will both be in the shop, and since it's too small to accommodate group knitting, we have several suggestions for great places to knit in public:
The Lunenburg waterfront
From 9:00AM - 12:00PM the Canadian Dory Racing Association will be racing near the Adams and Knickle wharf. Cheer on the rowers and get in a few rows of your own :)
The Lunenburg Bandstand
As far as we can tell there aren't any events planned there, so grab a seat and knit away. If something is planned and we've just missed it, it's most likely to be live music and there's lots of room on the surrounding grass to enjoy it.
No.9, Shop on the Corner, The Savvy Sailor, and Kate's Sweet Indulgence are all great places to get your knitting and caffeine fix.
Need something a little stronger to get you through that project? The Knot and The Grand Banker are great places to grab a pint with your purls.
