YarnCon can't stop planning events

How much do we love playing with yarn? So much that we are back again, this time bringing you World Wide Knit in Public Day in Chicago. WWKIP Day has been celebrated in Chicago's Millennium Park for 4 years now, and we took over organizing the event last year. This year we have additional help from some fine ladies we met on Ravelry.

Join us for a fun filled day of knitting and crocheting and spinning in public on June 14th (this Saturday) from Noon to at least 4pm in the pavilion behind the "faces" fountains in Millennium Park. We suggest you bring something to sit on, sunscreen, and plenty to drink. Of course, given our location, there are lots of great places to get something to eat and drink, so the choice is yours.

The first 100 people to stop by our welcome table will receive a Yarn Crawl in a bag! There will also be a yarn swap, and collection for Interim House, so bring that yarn you know you're not going to use, and trade it or give it to folks who can really use it. There will also be a group sewing up Afghans for Afghans rectangles (7" x 9"), so if you have those, or are looking for easy knitting while you chat with your friends, bring those rectangles along.

We'll also be accepting applications for YarnCon, so if you have been thinking of applying, but haven't gotten around to it, stop by and see us at the welcome table! We'll even have the forms printed and waiting for you, so no more excuses!
