World Wide Knit in Public Day is actually a whole week. The organisers though have kept the original name and extended the amount of time knitters can celebrate with their needles outdoors.
The fun takes place from the 14th to the 22nd of June. Here in the UK most events to mark the occasion are taking place on Saturday to enable more people to join in at the weekend. There are 49 events in the UK registered on the WWKIPD website, ranging from pic-knits (geddit?) in the park to collections of knitters at cafes. Check the WWKIPD website to find the event near with you and why not join in to show the world how fun and sociable knitting can be?
I'm off on a long weekend to Bergen this weekend and will be joining in with the WWKIPD spirit before I leave. Tomorrow I'm meeting a friend in a cafe to catch up on our latest projects and get the knitting needles out.
If I weren't going to Bergen I'd be taking part in Toft Alpaca's Adult PicKnit event in Warwickshire on Saturday 21st June. It's a chance to knit in public whilst enjoying a yummy picnic and seeing the alpacas kept there. What are you planning to do? Have your say in the comments box.
Talking of Toft Alpaca I have a very exciting blog post coming soon in conjunction with the company. I'll be publishing an exclusive pattern from them to celebrate their latest launch. Watch this space for more details!
