World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIPD). Anyone heard of this???
Someone gave me a Knitters Page-a-Day calendar from the Yarn Harlot. On June 12, she mentions the World Wide Knitting in Public Day and it sounds like fun!!!

Has anyone else heard of this?? Will you be participating? Go to www.wwkipday.com to find out more. Unfortunately, there aren't any events locally for me to participate in.

What do you all think???

Sure, it happens every year.

I knit in public all the time..mostly at the LYS.

My LYS sponsors a weekend long event (or, they did last year) but I don't think they were listed on the official site. If you have an LYS, you might want to talk to them specifically to see if they have something going on.

The group my friends and I started (Get Lit and Knit) is planning on celebrating this all week long

We had 25 people show up to our last gathering (which was only our 2nd) so we should be rockin' by the time KIP day comes!!!

I participated last year in Fort Worth, TX. We knit at the Kimball Art Museum. It was HOT, but fun. I met some new people and even learned how to magic loop properly. I am going to do it again this year. But I don't want to be outside.

Did you check out the (DFW) plan for this year? Rachel (Angelcow) is coordinating the day...riding the train. http://www.ravelry.com/groups/wwkip-...knitters-group should be cooler than last year. I don't know if I'm going to get to it this year...but, I'm going to try.

I like knitting in public, I get all kinds of comments about it and people always ask what I'm making. It's always so much fun. Plus, it's something fun to do while spending my breaks.

I think my knitting class might be going to the one in Auburn, AL on Fri. The other teacher got a flier at HL last Sat and thinks we should take a class trip...unfortunately not everyone is a knitter so I think we should just go at the end....we'll see....but it looks like FUN
