Knitting in Public 1

Tomorrow is World Wide Knit in Public Day when knitters world wide grab their pointy sticks and yarn and take to the streets.

The aim is to have fun, raise awareness that knitting is not just for grannies, recruit new knitters and to know you are knitting on the same day as people in Australasia, the Americas, the Middle East, Asia, India, Europe, countries from the former Soviet Union and hopefully people working at the poles.

The Bath Stitch n Bitch knitting group has organized its own event and will be knitting from 2p.m. to 5p.m. in the Foyer of Green Park Station in Bath.

As a spinner I am gamely taking along my wheel so people can see fleece being turned into yarn. Fellow knitters will be displaying articles they have made in the past and there will be an opportunity to see some local yarns and naturally dyed yarns.

If you are free drop by; all are welcome to have a chat and a laugh whilst clicking away.

Don't think you can't come if you don't knit, we are happy to chat. We will try to teach anyone who asks the basic stitches and if you don't knit but crochet or do another craft, you will be very welcome.

Hope to see you there.
