World Wide Knit In Public Day

by Aimee on May 24, 2007

June 9 is WWKIP Day! Woohoo!!! What plans do you have? Tell me here and if I have comments I will talk about them when I record the next episode (so you only have a couple days before that, but I will probably talk about it again on the next show, so seriously, what are you doing???)

I don’t have any plans yet, so if you are in the Charlotte area, let me know what you are planning. I have some email out to see if I can get something together, so we shall see, but I don’t know yet.

Why knit in public? WHY NOT??? I do it all the time. I make just about every day KIP day. I always have knitting with me and if I have to wait more than 2 mins in line or for an appointment, well, then I pull out my knitting. Sure, I get strange looks sometimes. I mean who expects a cute 30 year old to be knitting? But I also get a lot of – what are you making? can you teach me? I want to learn! That is beautiful! Did you knit that bag, too (because I am ALMOST always carrying a knit by me purse)?? what better way to expose new people to the amazing craft of knitting (or crochet if you must) than to knit in public! Its also a great way to meet new knitters in your area!
