World Wide Knit and Crochet in Public

Have you thought about what you might do for Knit and Crochet in Public?  Grab a few friends, your knitting or crochet, a chair and enjoy a day in the park talking and sharing your work.  Knitting and crocheting in public is a great way for people to come together, share ideas and make new friends.
