This coming Saturday (June 9th 2018) is World Wide Knit in Public Day! While it may be “knit” in public day, any form of crafting will do! This is a day where its encouraged that everyone who crafts finds a place in their local town and sit with fellow makers. Knit in Public day is a great way to raise awareness of our craft and it also may encourage others to pick up their own needles.
