  1. Sad to know about this event at that museum in Madison. Perhaps they didn't get enough word out to the knitting community? I know that there's a machine knitting group based in Madison (which meets in and around in the area). I would have liked to have gone out for WWKIP Day. FANTASTIC WATERMELON SOCKS!!! OXOXOX
