World Wide Knit in Public Day 2015 marks the 10th year of people publicly sharing their love of knitting around the world!

Knitty City will be hosting a knit-out at Bryant Park. Bring your own knitting or crochet and enjoy a day out in the sun with your fellow fiber enthusiasts!

We will have a special program presented by Melanie and Deborah Gall of The Savvy Girls Podcast, featuring "What's in Your Bag?," speed knitting, speed crocheting, and knitting songs. Ubaldo will be hosting "Strut Your Stuff" where you will be able to show off your projects and be eligible to win prizes. 

World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. 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 a specific day to get out of your house and go to a local event (with your knitting in tow) just for you and people like you.  Who knows you might even bump into your neighbor! Consider this a spark, to ignite a fire; getting all of the closeted knitters out into fresh air.
