World Wide Knit in Public Day?
I had never heard of this before seeing it on someone's blog. Apparently this started in 2005? Can someone tell me all about it and if they were in a group that paticipated in it in 2007? Thanks in advance!

Here is what I could find on the 'net about this. Looks like it is from last year and they are working on the home site.

I did a google search for "world wide knit in public 2008" and came up with THIS as the first hit.

That might be a good starting place for your questions.
