Knit in public, June 8th to16th

World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005
by Danielle Landes and takes place on the second
Saturday of June each year. It began as a way for
knitters to come together and enjoy each other's company.
Knit in Public Day is unique, in that it's the largest knitter
run event in the world. Each local event is put together
by a volunteer or a group of volunteers. They each
organize an event because they want to, not because
they have to. They bring their own fresh ideas into
planning where the event should be held, and what
people would like to do. In the past some people have
used this event as a means to show the general public
that ‘not only grannies knit!’. Knit in Public Day is
really about showing the general public that knitting
can be a community activity in a very distinct way.
