We think every should be knit-in-public day, but once a year we make an extra big deal of it with World Wide Knit In Public Day! Join us Saturday, June 8th, 2-5pm at Queen's Square Park in downtown Galt, Cambridge. Bring your lawnchair, we'll bring the snacks!

Bring them back into the daylight and along for the fun at Knit in Public Day. Prizes will be offered!
