World Wide Knit In Public Day

Today is World Wide Knit in Public Day. (WWKIP).

It was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes and has grown to  a week long event celebrating knitting. All over the world, knitters come together to bask in the joy of their creativity and to share ideas. There are undoubtedly events happening in yarn shops local to you. Here’s a list of UK events but if you can’t find anything, I’d encourage you to grab your knitting and your friends and go find a nice cafe/pub/park/library/market square/meeting point to sit in knit in. Similarly, if you always wanted to learn to knit but didn’t know how, a quick Ravelry search should direct you to a group near you. Don’t be afraid. Knitters are generally lovely, a good laugh and more than happy to enable!

    I was knitting on the beach!!! People kept coming over cos they were fascinated to see someone knitting, and I was able to let a few of them have details of various classes that are held in my area.
    Yay for knitters taking over the world :)

      That’s my girl!

      I was at the studio for Open Studios but I had plenty of people come and chat to me and ask what I was doing. I love sharing the fun of knitting, I’m glad you did too.

      Yay indeed for knitters!
