Starting this Saturday is the annual Knit in Public week!
This was started in 2007 as a day for those who craft alone can get together with a bunch of other knitters! It has since grown into a week long celebration – this year it runs from June 9th-17th and if you go to the webpage, you can find events in your area.
Well, we all love the idea of celebrating knitting in public – we do that already! (For instance, the reason I have so many handknit socks? I was on a train for 2-3 hours a day for my communte when I lived in Boston). But why be so restrictive? Many of us also crochet or spin in public too!
So we’re going to celebrate Crafting In Public with a new contest!
We are all heavily addicted to Pinterest – we could spend hours looking at & pinning all sorts of inspirational pictures. So we thought we’d have some fun by including our new favorite place. This contest is going to be a bit different than our usual blog contests but there are just a few quick steps:
- Follow Knit Picks on Pinterest. If you do not have a Pinterest account yet, it’s easy to set up. Right now, it’s invitation only but just request an invite at
http://pinterest.com and you’ll soon be pinning away.
- Repin this image on any of your boards:

- Leave a comment on this blog post with the link to your pin. (make sure you have an accurate email on the comment – it will not be public)
