Worldwide Knit In Public Day 2015

What did you get up to on yesterday's Worldwide Knit In Public Day (WWKIP Day). Did you knit on public transport? Did you get to knit outside or were you, like me, forced to be indoors due to the weather? Were you alone or in a group with likeminded people? Whatever you did, I hope you had a good time.

Here in Bath, WWKIP Day marked the start of the Bath Knitting &Crochet Guild organised by the Fashion Museum. There was a surprisingly good turnout and it was great to meet new people who also love to work with yarn. 

The Fashion Museum has an archive collection of vintage knitting patterns, some copies of which were on display and available for a small donation. The illustrations on some of them were fantastic! My favourite is the cover of Woolcraft in the image above.The patterns seemed to be mainly for garments, but there were socks and other accessories, too.

If you are interested, you can stay up to date with what's going on in my city. You can sign up for the Bath Knitting & Crochet Guild newsletter via the Fashion Museum's website to stay in the loop about events. I know they are hoping to have talks about various woolly topics, among other things.

The meetings will take place on every second Saturday of every other month at 10:00. This year, meetings will be held in June, August, October and December at The Fashion Museum. Maybe I'll see you there someday!
