It's "World Wide Knit in Public Day" which is now a WEEK-LONG celebration! http://www.wwkipday.com Thursday Afternoon CKU will be meeting and knitting around the fountains on Lincoln Square. The fountains are on Lincoln and Giddings, right in front of Cafe Selmarie. There are MANY restaurants and coffee shops within a block, so if the weather doesn't cooperate we will duck inside a place that can accommodate us.
(Carrie- counting on you!!!)
This is a good week to be vaguely on time in case weather moves venue last minute. Obvious things: bring easily portable, outdoor-friendly projects and wear sunscreen if necessary--we sit for HOURS. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As decided by the group, we are on a THREE week rotation with Aje Cafe, Dolce Casa Cafe, and field trips to different places around the (so far) North Chicago area. Be sure to check meetup (http://www.meetup.com/chicago-knitters-unite) to see where we are.
Please feel free to make suggestions for Field Trip days. We are always happy to try a new place! (Keep in mind we need enough space to accommodate a large group sitting for several hours.)
As always, we will be collecting the $1 meetup fee, and we ask as a courtesy to our venues that you order something -- even if it's just a coffee -- while we use their space.
