Worldwide Knit in Public Day

Saturday, June 14 is Worldwide Knit in Public Day. Come to the Rookery between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m and knit with fellow fiber enthusiasts. You could bring any type of fiber project and enjoy the local company.

We will be having a sale as well. 10% off all knitting needles and crochet hooks.

World Wide Kit in Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other's company. Knitting is such a solitary act that it's easy to knit alone somewhere and sink into your work without thinking about all the other knitters out there. Neighbors could spend all their lives never knowing that the other knits. This is a specific day to get out of your house and come knit.

It's the largest knitter run event in the world. In 2005 there were about 25 local events around the world. In 2006 there were about 70 local events. 2007 there were almost 200. Check out their website
