Ever wanted to expand your crafty skills or share them in public? The upcoming World Wide Knit In Public Day celebrates “outing” knitters and bringing them together. So grab your needles and some yarn, and head out to knit on Saturday, June 8! It’s great practice for the DC State Fair contests, and you might get some ideas for your entries from other crafters.
If you’d like to join a group, your local yarn store is probably having a gathering (check out Looped Yarn Works in Dupont Circle or Knitting Loft in Eastern Market). The Textile Museum near Dupont Circle is hosting a knitting group, too: check out the details below!
Quarterly Knitting Circle: Knit in Public Day
