World Wide Knit in Public Day


World Wide Knit in Public Day is the largest ranging knitting event in the world. If you're a knitter, this is a great chance to go out and network with other fiber artists in your community, share ideas and let's face it, talk knitting with other people who actually are excited to join in your knitting conversation. You can find out about events happening in your community by going onto the main website for the WWKIPD: http://www.wwkipday.com/. I'm hosting one of the events in Goldsboro, NC at Books-A-Million on Saturday, June 13 at 10:30. There should be plenty of seating for a small group. We don't have a knitting guild within 30 miles or more, so maybe this would lead to some kind of regular networking. I know there used to be a spinning guild here years ago, but that has since disbanded.
There are three other dates set aside for the knitting in public this year: June 14, 20, & 21. Since the 21st is Father's Day, however, this might be a more difficult date for some.
