I'm not a knitter myself, but I'm partnered with an avid one, so I got a close look at World Wide Knit in Public (WWKIP) Day in Central Park in New York on Saturday. What's that, you ask? Perhaps a karass, the fingers of a Cat's Cradle.
But I should let a knitter explain:
Yes -- they sit there and knit.
And converse with each other.
Some wisely brought chairs.
Most seemed to be having a great time.
Host Anne-Marie of Sit'n'Knit raffled off knitting goodies. I'm told that's a scale for weighing yarn.
The winner was thrilled.
WWKIP comes around annually. Look out for it in your neighborhood.
