That's the official hashtag for tomorrow's event.  So use it you're coming or from the venue or watch it for news of the the day.

The great news is that we won't have any weather issues.  No library back up is necessary. We will have partly sunny and partly cloudy skies - which is okay for a hot day.  We will have a lot of shade available, but please bring hats and sunscreen if you usually use them.  

Just a reminder about  the facility: the Ramsey Municipal Pool usually requires all guests to be accompanied and hosted by a resident member.  Tomorrow, everyone is welcome but at the entrance be sure to indicate you're with the Knitting in Public event.  There is a small fee for the full use of the facility, ($5) which is a significant discount from the usual $15 guest fee.  

Food and beverages are  available to purchase, or bring your own.  There are grills at the other end of the property, which you are welcome to use, if you wish.  

The pool is pristine and there are depths for waders through lap swimmers.  

On site restrooms, changing area and showers are available. 

Across the street are tennis courts, if you wish to bring your racket along with your knitting.  

There's free Wi-Fi.

Please remember  pool rules : No Glass Bottles
                                                No Alcohol
                                                No Tobacco

Once inside, look for the gazebo with large colorful tassles.  If you have a Ravelry button with your Ravelry user name on it, wear it!  You'll find me in a lime green T-shirt with my Hello My Name is Sealed4Ever Ravelry button (and maybe a few other knit-ish ones.)

If you're bringing a beginner with you, I'll teach a lesson at  12:45.   Please bring size 6 or 7 needles and some smooth, single color yarn.  I don't have extra needles but I will bring some leftover yarn balls in case  they are needed.

Ramsey Municipal Pool is on East Oak Street in Ramsey, NJ, between Wyckoff Ave and South Central Ave.  See you and your knitting, and I hope, your knitting friends from  11:00 - 4:00.
