WWKIP Day = Better living through stitching together

My knitting pattern usually has the following phrase: “Knit to end of row”.

In Central Library Peterborough, people will really be doing that. Do you have a UFO (Unfinished Object)  or a WIP (Work In Progress)? Then grab it and come on down to the library on Saturday June 14 from 10 am-12 noon and join in as Central Library Peterborough and Knit World join hundreds of knitters around the world for World Wide Knit In Public Day.

There is also a session at Lyttelton Library.

It will be great. Sitting and knitting or doing crochet with like-minded crafters, sharing ideas, discussing patterns and quietly counting stitches. If you find knitting to be thirsty work, then hot drinks and food will be available.

As for me, I’m going to be at work on Saturday.  However I will bring along my knitting bag containing my latest WIP  and, at lunchtime, between sips of coffee and bites of sandwiches, I’ll k2 *p2 k2* rep to end, turn.

If you need some inspiration, check out the following:

And, in the spirit of crowdsourcing, why not share your favourite resources, or tales and photos of your WIPs and UFOs (or even completed projects)?

      Will you be at Peterbourough St. with you UFO/WIP on Saturday?

    Do you still knit the way you used to – one row left handed and one row right? You were a very confused knitter as a young girl.

      Sorry to disappoint you, but Mum sorted that one out, but I can’t manage to hold the needles and yarn at the same time.

    The ladies from In Stitchches (the knitting group who get together on Tuesday evenings 7- 10pm at Coffee Culture in Beckenham) are back planning another WWKIP day event after a break last year. This will be on Saturday 21st June 1-4pm at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, Wigram. Lots of fun games, activities, prizes and just a jolly good knitting get together.
