World Wide Knit in Public Day originated in 2005 by Danielle Landes and falls every second Saturday in June.
A not-to-be-missed day for those who love to knit: it is World Wide Knit in Public Day, an event dedicated to all knitters around the world to enjoy the beauty of this hobby outdoors.
The intent of this day is precisely to show that knitting is suitable for all ages, but also an opportunity to share it with other people.
A fun and unusual way to spread a beautiful activity even to those who have never tried knitting before!
