World Wide Knit In Public Day: June 9

World Wide Knit In Public Day (aka w.w.k.i.p.d), is a once a year event where young urbanites, hippy chics, grandmas and snags alike can put their differences aside and revel in what they have in common - knitting. Knitting is undergoing a huge resurgence as it is discovered by a new generation looking for something more out of life, trying to get away from the slick western lifestyle full of conveniences and technology and make sense out of our modern life. Many knitting communities use knitting as a peaceful way to demonstrate their anxieties about government policy, poverty and the environment. Check out a knitting club near you or meet some fellow knitters at w.w.k.i.p.d. The website has a listing of local meet ups. ::w.w.k.i.p.d ::image from femail
