Come get your stitch on outside to celebrate World Wide Knit In Public (WWKIP) Day.
WWKIP Day is the largest knitter run event in the world so on Saturday 9 June, grab your current project, pack a picnic and come and join us in the great outdoors of Kings Heath Park to celebrate.
World Wide Knit In Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each others company. Knitting is traditionally seen as a solitary act, done behind the closed doors of the home. WWKIP Day was created to get knitters out of their houses and into the fresh air.
