Better living through stitching together.

Did you know that this Saturday is World Wide Knit In Public Day? This event started in 2005 as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. From founder Danielle Landes: “Knitting is such a solitary act that it’s easy to knit alone somewhere and sink into your work without thinking about all the other knitters out there. Neighbors could spend all their lives never knowing that the other knits. This is a specific day to get out of your house and go to a local event (with your knitting in tow) just for people like you. Who knows you might even bump into your neighbor!”

Our staff is celebrating with a Knit Pick-nic in Portland, OR. We’ve invited our local friends and customers to join us at for an afternoon at a local park, where we will enjoy snacks, giveaways, a trunk show, and (of course) knitting. But you don’t have to be able to knit to join us. Bring your handicrafts of any description. Bring your coloring books, if you like! We would love to see you, no matter what activity brings you joy; get all the details here.

    The second Saturday in June is June 11th. The “Knit in Public day” is June 18th, which is the 3rd Saturday in June.

      You are right! The original Knit In Public day was the second Saturday in June, but this year it is on the third Saturday.

    I’ve just signed up for 2 Knit in Public Day events in my area. Good thing they both have ample time!

    I took Dishie to Knit in Public Day and enjoyed the mosaic of avid knitters surrounded by art and the bustle of downtown.
