World Wide Knit in Public Day 2010, Ireland

This year World Wide Knit in Public Day can be anytime between June 12th and June 20th 2010

Better living through stitching together. 

WWKIP is the largest annual knitter run event in the world. This year it takes place over the course of 8 days. It's about showing the general public that knitting can be a community activity in a very distinct way. More info on the history of WWKIP Day on their website
It is very easy to set one up, just decide on a venue, and alternative plan in case it rains, and then simply list it on the WWKIP website, here. They have all the promotional material you need already organised. You can download press kits, posters, flyer's, etc - here
