Its that time of the year again ... 45 days to go

World Wide Knit in Public Day
June 13, 2009

Dunedin, New Zealand

Hosted by: Take Back the Knit & Dunedin Creative Fibre

Where: Wall Street Mall, George Street
When: 2:00pm

I'd love to see you there, with or without your knitting, its a friendly bunch ... a little obsessed about fiber things - but hey, what normal person isn't?
We'll congregate in the ground floor seating area of the mall, this is easy to find if you come in the main entrance off George Street.
We have permission, the nearby cafe will be open, and we plan to post posters and some advts as reminders.

Please bring:
Pointy sticks and yarn like stuff
(or crochet or other fibre arts, as long as you are safe in public).

The backup plan is:
There is no backup plan, the location is indoors, warm and well serviced.

Note : This KIP is not knitting exclusive
Ok - so its still a while away, 45 days, but put it in your diary, out of towners --- plan your driving time, we would love to catch up, or set to and host your very own local WWKIP near you.
The World Wide Knit in Public site has a list (growing daily) of WWKIP's all over the world, all the info you need to organise and host a KIP, and posters.

And the more astute of you will notice that with KIP'ing* as the main topic of this post ... I have neatly avoided posting any of my own knitting progress. Its dark by 5pm now, my bus gets in at 5:30pm, winter looms, dusk comes early and fast, and I plumb forgot to photograph my knitting in daylight. I'll have more knitting next time.

Oh, I SO wish that I could be there! Alas, it's a little far to drive ;)

When I saw your title I immediately thought that maybe I should organise something up here. Then I spotted the date - no can do, it's our son's wedding day. I may be just a little too busy that day.
