Knitting in Public!
World Wide Knit in Public Day comes to LYS this Saturday June 12, 2010! WWKiP is a knitter-run event and a reminder that we can build community with our handwork.
Our KiP starts with a Ceremonial 'Cast-On' at 10:00 am & we'll 'Bind Off' at 6:00! Throughout the day we'll celebrate with door prizes, whoopie pies & lemonade, and ample opportunities to build community together. Don't forget to bring a chair!
We're very excited this year to introduce the LYS KNiTTING BUGGY! Imagine a horse & carriage ride along beautiful country lanes, through a covered bridge, past cows & maybe even some sheep--while knitting & purling with new crafty friends! The Knitting Buggy is a unique opportunity to celebrate our craft together in the breathtaking landscape of rural Lancaster County.
There is still space available for this exciting event! Buggies leave at 11:00 am & again at 3:00 pm. Reservations for the Knitting Buggy are required! Call the shop at (717) 768-8007 & we'll be happy to add your name to the list. All KiP knitters will receive a very special LYS rate of $8.00 each for the 55 minute buggy ride.
We were tickled to be mentioned on the knittyblog last week. Amy Singer posted a 'What's What Wednesday' http://knittyblog.com/?p=31 singling out a record breaking attempt in Toronto, a hand knit fashion event in Dublin--our KiP Buggy rides here in Lancaster County, PA & the legendary I Knit London WWKIP Treasure Hunt! We're certainly in good company!
So, grab your knitting, a buddy or two & a comfy chair (& check out this post about how to pack for a KiP, too: http://knittyblog.com/?p=53)! Drop in whenever you can on Saturday, it's going to be fun!
LYS is located at Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse, PA. The shop has ample parking, there are public restrooms, restaurants, shops & a nice cafe' nearby.
WWKiP: "Better living through stitching together."
