Probably too late for most of you, but maybe you can bookmark this for next year . . . and if you don’t knit, go ahead and crochet or any other thing you do with fibre . . . or tell a story and say it’s a ‘yarn-along’ 🙂
Just had a note from Squirrel Picnic; the Knit in Public is a week-long event, so get out that yarn, those needles or hooks, or fingers or knitting Nancy or . . . and go make a spectacle of yourself! I’ve been known to embarrass friends and family by carrying my yarn in a shoulder bag and knitting while standing in line at the bank or wherever . . . if not knitting, then I’m reading (or, these days, using my iPhone, heaven help me . . .)
Main thing is: have fun!! 😉
Happy World Wide Knit in Public Day!
Get out your yarn and knitting needles or crochet hooks. Grab your friends, and head to your nearest park for a day of knitting, crocheting, and sharing your love of yarn with your neighbors. Or just pack your current project in your bag and work on it wherever the day takes you.
Knit in Public Day began in 2005 as a way to give knitters an opportunity to meet each other, because as any knitter can tell you, knitting can be a pretty solitary hobby. Since then, it has become the largest knitter run event in the world, with local events held in Australia, China, England, France, Ireland, Norway, South Africa, the United States and many more countries.
I’ll be knitting a sleeveless top out of that coral-colored KnitPicks yarn I showed you back in March. It’s about time I got this done…
