World Wide Knit in Public Day is Saturday, June 13, 2020. This largest knitter-run event in the world started in 2005 and is now celebrated in at least 57 countries. Volunteers all over the world host events to bring knitters together to socialize, learn new skills, and share the joy of knit and crochet with the general public.
Our library celebration couldn’t take place this year, so I thought it would be fun to look back at past events.
Yarn bombing is a type of knit and crochet graffiti or street art and we’ve had some exceptional examples at the library.
All ages are welcome to participate in the activities. There is a lot of talking and laughter while working on a current project for all to see.
Knitting competitions can be fierce with trophies for the winners!
Library staff enjoy knitting displays for the Children’s Department and Circulation Office.
I’m looking forward to World Wide Knit in Public Day 2021 when we can all get together again. In the meantime, check out these ebooks and magazines on OverDrive/Libby for inspiration and to improve your skills.
Hope to see you next year!
