Happy "Worldwide Knit in Public Day"!
Everyone has a special day to celebrate, including knitters! Today is officially Worldwide Knit in Public Day, so pull out your knitting needles and yard and go somewhere to show folks what you’re up to.
Back in 2005, Danielle Landes began the Worldwide Knit in Public Day to encourage knitters to get together and enjoy this as a social hobby. Get your friends together or use this as an opportunity to make new friends for a day of knitting. Plan an outing to your favorite coffee shop, restaurant, or community hall, knowing you’re in good company since knitters in the U.S., Canada, Australia, England, France, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, and South Africa are celebrating too!
At the end of the long day, settle into your most comfortable chair and read The Knitting Diaries by authors Debbie Macomber, Christina Skye, and Susan Mallery.
