World Wide Knit in Public Day
Date: TBA
Find an event in your town: www.wwkipday.com
Details: WWKiP Day is unique, in that it’s the largest knitter run event in the world.  Each local event is put together by a volunteer or a group of volunteers.  They each organize an event because they want to, not because they have to.  They bring their own fresh ideas into planning where the event should be held, and what people would like to do.  If it weren’t for these volunteer hosts, WWKiP Day would still just be an idea.  So when you go to your local event, make sure you thank your host(s) and if you’re inclined, bring along some yummy treats to share.
