Knitting all over town
Just a reminder that this Sunday is the Streetknit Yarn Swap, scarf relay, International Yarn Bombing Day and Worldwide Knit in Public Day. Come on down to Wise Daughters and join in!
And next Saturday, June 18, the lovely folks at The Purple Purl are hosting their own Worldwide Knit in Public event (really, it’s more of a WWKIPWeek than Day) at Leslie Grove Park (Queen and Jones, in the heart of Leslieville). A Charity Knit-out is scheduled and Streetknit will be the recipient of all those donations! They’ve organized free hat and mitt kits for you to come down and put together and there are instore incentives if you finish your donation within two weeks. So bring your needles (4.0, 4.5, 5mm) and probably a lawnchair and spend a couple of hours in the sun (hopefully), enjoying the company of likeminded folks! Many thanks to Jennifer and the rest of the staff at the Purple Purl for organizing this event and for choosing Streetknit as their charity of choice. Hope to see you there!
