Well, if you’re a knitter then the answer might well be: I’ll be outside somewhere knitting in public!
Yes, Worldwide Knit in Public Day is coming up and there are events all over the USA and further afield too. My local group has spinners, weavers and knitters all hoping to attend and I think a few local shops may be setting up a stall or two as well.
Last year I attended a much smaller event which was just a few knitters in the centre of a shopping area. However, quite a few knitters popped by, drawn by the offer of an extra discount at the adjacent yarn store I am sure! In previous years, I have sometimes not even found a group but have just taken my knitting needles and sat outside somewhere to enjoy the scenery and knit ‘en plein air’, as they say.
Oh, and while I was looking for photos for this blogpost, I was wondering if I could find some pictures of me knitting outside, only to realise that in almost every photo I had knitting in my hands! Ah well, it's good to have obsessions...
Happy Knitting in Public!
