World Wide Knit in Public Day is almost here!

World Wide Knit (crochet, spin, weave, play with yarn) in Public Day (week) starts on June 8, 2013!  We are kicking it off in Chicago with the Millennium Park gathering of WWKiP Day!  We will meet in the Boeing Gallery North Area of  Millennium Park, starting at noon, and going until 5pm, or as long as people feel like crafting in the park.  If the weather is not yarn friendly, we will meet in the main reading room of the Chicago Cultural Center.  We always welcome all the yarny crafts, so don’t hesitate to bring your crochet hooks and spindles.

What projects are you planning on bringing?  I am hoping to have my endless tank top all knit up and blocked in time to wear, which will free me up to bring something new!  I’m thinking a crocheted tank top.  What are your go to social crafting projects?

In the meantime, how about a little blast from the past?  Here is a picture from the first year we hosted WWKiP Day, back in 2007:



See all those people in the background?  All knitting, crocheting and spinning.  All of them!  Let’s make that kind of scene again this year!  We hope to see you there!

    Glad I found this — and I’ll be there. It’d be great if you posted this event on the website
    which so far only lists an event in Hyde Park as what’s going on with KIPs in Chicago.
