  • Let's Celebrate World Wide Knit and Crochet in Public Day!

    World Wide Knit in Public DayIt's that time of year again: World Wide Knit (and Crochet!) in Public Day is upon us! I love this unofficial holiday because it encourages crafters to come together and celebrate their amazing skills. Now through Sunday, people are gathering all over the globe to show off their yarncrafting skills in public. If you're in the New York area, you might see some familiar faces at Saturday's event at the Brooklyn Public Library!

    Are you interested in finding a gathering near you? Click here to search the official WWKiP Day website. If there's no meet up scheduled in your area, you can still celebrate! Simply take your yarn, hooks, and needles to your local coffee shop, park, restaurant, or other public space and start crafting. Make today and every day your own personal WWKiP Day!

    Are you celebrating WWKiP Day this year? Where do you plan to crochet or knit in public? Let us know in the comments!

  • Knitta Please Hits Fashion Week

    New York Fashion Week is the place to see and be seen. Underground yarn-bombing group Knitta Please got into the spirit by adding colorful knitted covers to poles outside of the Standard Hotel. The project, which will be on display through tomorrow, is meant to celebrate the relationship between fashion, design, crafting, and street culture.
