>Hemskapat hade vänligheten och berätta lite mer om WWKIP för mig, både varför vi har en WWKIP-dag och vart man kan gå om man befinner sig i Stockholm den dagen. Tyvärr kommer jag inte själv att kunna delta, men det blir säkert en fantastisk dag, bara nu vädret håller sig på de stickandes sida. Så här skrev Hemskapat:
Place: Humlegården Stockholm, Sweden!
Time: 12:00-16:00 Hrs
Bring knitting, something (blanket or chair) to sit on, picnic if you desire, all your knitting friends and a happy face!
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 others 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. In some places there are many different knitting groups that never interact with each other, on Knit in Public Day they come together in one place, making them hard to miss.
