Fun Happenings in NYC

Posted on | June 8, 2011 | 4 Comments

Work for the book is coming along slowly, but surely! I received the first of my yarn late last week and have been busy swatching away. While I can’t show you what I’ve been working on, I can tell you about some fun happenings going on in NYC over the next two weekends!

Renegade Craft Fair – June 11-12

I missed Renegade last year because I was at TNNA, but I’m too busy to go out to Columbus this year. So sad! But it’s ok because I can take a break from my work and go out to Renegade instead. Lots of etsy sellers from all over the US will be there and it’s a great way to see all the goodies in person. I’m especially looking forward to checking out The Sweatshop of Love and all the fun knitty goodness she has to offer.

Check it out:
Renegade Craft Fair
McCarren Park
June 11 – 12
11am – 7pm

The Big Circle Project – June 11

June 11th is also World Wide Knit in Public Day! Knitty City will be hosting the Big Circle Project in Bryant Park from 12-4pm. The goal is to have up to 75 knitters knitting red yarn “in the round”. Knitting experience is not needed, and volunteers will be on hand to happily teach participants the knit stitch.

Brooklyn Fiber Arts Guild WWKIP Day – June 18

The Brooklyn Fiber Arts Guild will be holding its 3rd annual World Wide Knit in Public Day on June 18th. The event is taking place on the steps at the Grand Army Plaza Library in Brooklyn. There will be music, raffles, knitting authors, and activities for the kids. I hope to be able to check it out with some friends for the first time this year!

Check it out:
Brooklyn Public Library – Central Library
10 Grand Army Plaza
Brooklyn, NY 11238
10am – ?
