Mark your calendars, because Saturday, June 14, 2008 is World Wide Knit in Public Day. According to the WWKIP site, the Philadelphia event will be in Rittenhouse Square, beginning at 11 a.m., until about 3 p.m., and sponsored by the 3rd Street Ravelers.
You can visit the main site, and search for events in just about any location. Because I am apparently unable to leave well enough alone, I had to search some others. I was shocked - but not necessarily surprised, I guess - to see that there were no events planned ("yet" as the site says) for Vatican City. (This further fuels my suspicions that the pope only crochets ...) Likewise, there is nothing planned in Tristan da Cunha either. Personally, I don't think it should be called "World Wide" if everyone isn't participating, but there is still time for someone in those two places to organize something, I guess ...
Stitch 'n Pitch with the Phillies!
August 5, 2008 (a Tuesday night), the Phillies are having a Stitch 'n Pitch event at Citizens Bank Park. They will be playing the Florida Marlins, and tickets are currently available here, as well as through some of the area yarn stores.
For those of you who enjoy two-fers, it's also Motrin IB Ladies Night - what could be more fun?? Maybe they will work together to give out goody bags that contain yarn and ibuprofen! However, this does have me wondering - do men not use Motrin IB? Will you be thrown out if they discover you have Advil on you? What about people who can't take ibuprofen, can they come if they leave their Tylenol or Bayer aspirin at home?
I don't know, this one seems to bring up a lot of disturbing questions ... maybe we should just all stick with Stitch 'n Pitch.
Just my opinion, of course ...
