5th Annual Iranian Festival was also being held, so we were treated to all sorts of entertainment while we sat and knit. There was a children's parade and singing and dancing and book readings. I also had a great lunch from their catering booth. I had Fesenjan, which is a stew with poultry (mine had chicken) and a sauce of pomegranate, walnuts and spices, served over rice with nan and spiced yogurt on the side. It was wonderful. I love trying new ethnic foods and rarely find something that I don't like.
Back to the knitting ~ we had a wonderful time. Charisa put a lot of hard work into the day and we had new-knitter bags to hand out, filled with yarn and a pattern, and signs to put on our tables about why we knit and we also each scored a free skein of yarn for showing up fairly early.
Here are a few pics from the day ~ it was a blast and a great 1st knit in public day for me!
