Posted by Kyle Design on June 7, 2007

Knitting Needle and Yarn Business Card Carrier Coming up on Saturday, June 9, 2007 is World Wide Knit in Public Day. This is a day that was started by knitter Danielle Landes in 2005 as a way of encouraging fellow knitters to get out and proudly knit while meeting other knitters. It is a fun, casual event that is now celebrated all over the world. To find out more about where you can meet other knitters in your area, see where events are planned and get directions, read the World Wide Knit In Public blog at World Wide KIP Day. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, there are groups meeting in several locations:

  • In Berkeley on the grassy area outside the West Entrance to Cal at the corner ofKnitting Christmas Ornament with Beaded Accents Oxford and Center streets from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
  • In Los Altos, knitters are meeting at Plaza at the intersection of State and Main Streets from 10am – 2pm.
  • In San Francisco, bring your knitting needles and yarn to Union Square at Powell & Geary streets from 11am to 1pm.
  • In Redwood City, knitting enthusiasts are meeting at the San Mateo County Courthouse in sunny downtown Redwood City from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • In San Rafael, KIP fans will be at the downtown San Rafael City Plaza, bounded by 4th Street and 5th Avenue and Lootens Place and A street.

My daughter Parker is a finger-knitter. Finger knitting is a great Child finger knitting with colorful yarn.crafts activity for kids and a wonderful way to get them hooked on knitting. It is very easy and doesn’t even require knitting needles – you only need yarn and your fingers. Makes a great emergency activity to keep kids busy – you can just carry a small ball of yarn with you and pull it out any time the kids need a way to (quietly) entertain themselves.

For easy directions with a lot of clear photos on how to finger knit, click on How To Instructions for Finger Knitting. Parker and I carefully photographed and wrote down all the steps, plus we included several tips for finishing and using the finished project. We even show you how to Double Finger Knit, too!
