World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIP) was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes and is the largest knitter run event in the world. Knitters have joined in local events all over the world and in 2005, there were 25 local events, which grew to 751 events in 2009.
Not only grannies knit, but without those grannies, we wouldn’t have the wealth of knitting knowledge that we do.
Everyone is welcome to come and knit, share ideas and enjoy the fresh air at the Barriere Bandshell at Fadear Park on June 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event is hosted by the Boulder Mountain Fibre Arts group.
WWKIP Day is about showing the general public that knitting can be a community activity, and if local knitters haven’t had a chance to interact with other knitters, they can come together in one place.
Bring your knitting, a chair, appropriate clothing for the weather, sunblock, lunch, drinks, or snacks, and a smile. There will be a concession stand. There will also be music throughout the day.
Everyone is welcome, from the experienced knitter, to those just starting out, and those with experience will be happy to lend a helping hand, or to answer any knitting related questions you may have.
