World Wide Knit In Public Day-2009




Get your hooks and needles out. This month for all yarn lovers and crafty crocheters and knitters-we are celebrating World Wide Knit In Public Day. It's also not exclusively for just knitters, crocheters are welcome. I'm in fact is a crocheter. Taught by my grandmother and older sis, by the way.
This year WWKIP is being celebrated for 2 weekends in June this year. The holiday is usually held on only one Saturday in June. It also depends on whose hosting it. They pick the time, place and other activities for the event. So this year WWKIP is being celebrated on these dates, one which has already passed. That was, June 13 & 14, 2009 [Saturday & Sunday]. The last one is going to be tomorrow June 20 & 21, 2009. For a schedule or if you would like to find out if a WWKIP is being hosted near you, go here: www.wwkipday.com. Tomorrow I plan to attend a World Wide Knit In Public and crochet to my hearts content.
So those of you who knit and/or crochet, grab your knitting needles, crochet hooks, your yarn(s) and your (WIP's) 'work in progress' along with your sister, grandmother and mother-or maybe your husband. O.K. yeah right. Like the men are actually gonna come out and sit and knit with us gals. But hey who knows, they are men who knits or crochets. They make really nice things to, really they do. Bet you all didn't know that Rosie Grier knits. Also check out Lion Brand Notebook Blog here. Scroll down to the heading; "More Famous Men Knitting: Cary Grant" and you will be amazed. You can find it here, www.blog.lionbrand.com.
If you can't make it to a hosted WWKIP or one is not near you. Crochet or knit in public right in your front yard. Or if your going out some where take your needles and/or hooks with you and work on your project if you get a chance or waiting on or for someone. Another idea also is go to a Starbucks, a local book store-like Barnes & Nobles, a park or a (LYS) Local Yarn Store and knit/crochet there. All of those places count as public. You'll be amazed at how much on-lookers you'll and people asking questions.
Knitting, crocheting yarn crafting, crafting in general or even baking are all hobbies and pasttimes that we enjoy and it helps us to destress, relax and calm our minds. It's actually a gift to be able to these things, because it really helps us to enjoy life. So whatever craft or hobby you like to do, take the time or a day for that matter and celebrate the joy you get out of it. Actually I recommend we should do it everyday, but for those who can't meet that quota, at least do it once a month. Enjoy Life, and enjoy Serenity.
Have a "Happy World Wide Knit (and Crochet) In Public Day" this weekend.
Peace & Love everybody

I would love to participate in a crochet day like this (tried knitting but I was all thumbs, so I stick with the crocheting). I do crochet scarves and then donate them to my friend who has a charity here called Operation Hope. She participates in bazaars throughout the year and I give them to here to sell and the money goes to Op Hope, so I feel like I am giving back in that way. Peace & blessings,
