Knit in Public!

This Saturday, June 14, is World-Wide Knit in Public Day! WWKIP day started to bring other knitters together and to show the world that knitters of every type are everywhere.

This a specific day to get out of your house and go to a local event (with your knitting in tow) just for you and people like you. Who knows you might even bump into your neighbor! Consider this a spark, to ignite a fire; getting all of the closeted knitters out into fresh air.

There are a few Pennsylvania events listed, but only one in Philadelphia that I know of: My knitting group, the Third Street Ravelers, is hosting a KIP event at Rittenhouse Square beginning around 11 A.M. More information is available on the WWKIP event page.

Where my Philly stitches at?

Do all you knitters and crocheters out in Philly-land know about Ravelry? This site combines the best resource of patterns and yarns with all the fun of social networking. Tag your projects, tag your yarns, tag your forum posts.

While Ravelry is still technically in beta, the wait list for sign-ups is short, so withing a couple weeks you’ll be just as addicted as the rest of us.

You can join the Metblogs group or one of the many other Philadelphia based groups.
