World Wide Knit in Public Day 2008 – June 14th Bay Area Locations for Fun Event

Posted by Kyle Design on June 10, 2008

Coming up this weekend is the 2008 World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIP Day) on Saturday June 14th, and I’ve compiled a list of locations in the greater San Francisco Bay Area hosting this growing event.

Purse or Pocket Sized Knitting Flask in PurpleDon’t Forget: Most events are being held outdoors, and it is looking like it will be a hot weekend, so be sure to bring water, hats, sunscreen, folding chairs, blankets, ice chest, snacks or lunch, etc. Most have free bathrooms nearby.

Bring what you’re working on as well as items you’ve finished so you can share your experience with it for other knitters or to give them ideas for good projects to try. If you forget to bring your knitting needles and current project, most stores are open with some giving discounts all day. Otherwise there is always finger knitting, which is a great way to get the little kids started as budding knitters. 🙂
