sounds fun. I don't hide my knitting anyways, so yup, I might look for some nice public place to gather attention!
my LYS probably never heared about it, but I will mention it

Thanks to whoever dug this thread up!!! I'd forgotten all about it! Now that the big weekend is here, I discovered that the only "in public" knitting I'll be able to do that day is outside in my front yard!

Most of my knitting is done in my living room or occasionally at the public library! People always stare at me when I'm there, especially when I'm using my size 50 Speed Stix!!!

Happy WWKIP Day!!!

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.

If you want to see if there's an official KIP event in your country/state/city.........check out the official website. http://www.wwkipday.com/find_kip.htm You may find one right down the road

Haha, so right. Actually I found out there's going to be one at the place I usually hang out with my friend with. We're going to check it out next Saturday.

too bad, there is no place near me, I found.
But I will sit in a concert hall tomorrow and knit during the dress rehearsal (don't worry, nobody minds). So I can knit away happy as a clam
(Must be hard even for the happiest clam to knit away! )

Ours is going to be today, but I think it'll be rained out. It's supposed to be rainy and only about 45 degrees. My fingers'll freeze up too much to knit outside.

I knit in public quite often, but I'm trying to get some folks here interested in doing it as an event to get more people interested. All four of us should be able to drag another person in... kicking and screaming that they were at the hobby store to get scrapbooking supplies.

have fun - being a missionary on a religious crusade :D

I already did turn my apprentice at the office into a knitter. Is that public? She feels SO accomplished that she mastered a baby hat and a (rather large) baby blanket and both baby and mother just loved them. I am happy I started her out on this journey and she is sooo happy with it.
