World Wide Knit in Public Day- Dublin

Here is the plan for WWKIP Day in Dublin.

This year, WWKIP Day is Saturday, June 9th.

There will be two main activities:

1) Knit in Public on the DART! Join us at either Malahide or Bray DART station before 11am. The Malahide group will take the 11:00 to Pearse St station; the Bray group will take the 11:08 to Pearse St station. Then grab seats and knit your way into town! Knit, chatter, be friendly to people, and tell them to come along to a SnB group! Once at Pearse St, make your way to St. Stephen's Green.

2) Knit in Public in St. Stephen's Green! We'll aim to be at the Summerhouse the whole afternoon. This will be a great chance to meet other knitters and crafters in the Dublin area. Even if you already come to one of the regular meetings, you'll definitely be able to meet more like-minded people here to talk, exchange tips and tricks, and- oh yeah- knit with! And while you're doing so, you can help raise money for Age Concern.

We want to show everyone that people from all walks of life knit; that it's a great way to show off your creative side; that it's fun; that producing something from your own two hands is a huge source of pride (bring some of your finished objects and show them off!); and that it's a great way to meet people.

So, please join us on the 9th. Even if you only have time for one of the activities, we'd love to see you there! And bring people- bring friends, bring your children and loved ones, bring random people you've met on the DART on the way over. We want to show people what a great community we've built around knitting and crafting.

A flyer to announce and promote the day is available to download here.

See you on the 9th!
