Did you know that there is a world wide knit in public day? There is truly a day for everything! World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes and takes place on the second Saturday of June each year. This day began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Over the years there have been many local events in Australia, China, England, Finland, France, Ireland, Norway, Poland, South America, Sweden, the United States and Germany.
In the past some people have used this event as a means to show the general public that ‘not only grannies knit!’. Knit in Public Day is really about showing the general public that knitting can be a community activity in a very distinct way. In some places there are many different knitting groups that never interact with each other, on Knit in Public Day they come together in one place, making them hard to miss.
