World Wide Knit in Public Day

World Wide Knit in Public Day began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Consider this a spark, to ignite a fire; getting all of the closeted knitters out into fresh air.

Spend as much (or as little) time as you like. Work on projects together, show off your latest knitting project or help someone new to the craft learn with tips and advice.

We will provide some extra needles and wool for people who may like to give it a go!

What is World Wide Knit in Public Day?

World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company.
