Public Service Announcements

WWKIP Day!

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 ...

I think if the guys take it on Ladies Motrin IB night, their dicks will fall off. But with all the Motrin in their bloodstream, it won't hurt a bit!

Just a theory.

Thanks for the PSA! Will have to see what is going on in my corner of the country. :)

The men probably think that the side effects they'd have from the Motrin would be cured by massive injestion of Viagra. Then again, I think they think Viagra is good for anything that ails you......

Motrin night for Ladies ... what will they think of next?

KSD said...

Yep --- you'll be wanded for acetaminophen. Narcotics dogs will do random sweeps of the stadium, during which all hot dogs sales shall be suspended.

Well I won't be able to join you in Rittenhouse Square - but I'll take my knitting to the tailgate party before Jimmy Buffet. This I'm sure will bring out all the crazy fin-heads.

Very funny post - and informative too! I'll have to think how I might participate in the WWKIP!

This year I hope I remember long enough to participate!

Stitch and motrin combo. Clever marketing. Wanded for acetaminophin? LOL.

I was sad to see Panama doesn't have any WWKIP events either. It almost makes me want to fly down just to host one...and maybe see my friends. Oh, and go the to beach.
