World Wide Knit in Public Day (June 11th, with celebrations all week long) is a holiday when knitters, crocheters, and all lovers of yarn are encouraged to take their crafting with them out into public. Here are 3 great ways to celebrate this yarncraft holiday:
1) Wear something to show your crafter pride! There’s still time to make a small accessory or two before the big day. The Crochet Bracelet and the Knit Bracelet (pictured above) both sparkle in Vanna’s Glamour and work up in no time. Plus, you can wear them no matter how warm or cold it is!
2) Make something special in public! Why not try out a new pattern or yarn for the occasion? Treat yourself to some special crafting time in a public place and enjoy showing others your skills! Our Pattern Finder is a great place to start looking for new and interesting projects. Check out our previous post about how to use this feature of our site.
3) Find a group to celebrate with! Groups are forming and events are being planned all over the world. The World Wide Knit in Public Day website has a database of KIP (Knitting In Public) events online at www.wwkipday.com. You can check out local events near you, or plan your own!
