It's the annual Knit-Out in Union Square! Come see what it's all about and then join your fellow yarn addicts for some knitting on the lawn.
Knit-Out is a great opportunity to meet more people who knit and crochet! The Knit-Out starts at 12noon and ends at 5pm. There are fashion shows, book signings (Yarn Harlot will be there!!!) charity projects and contests. You can also volunteer as a knitting or crochet instructor. (See CYCA website for details, link provided)
GUESTS ARE ABSOLUTELY WELCOME! In fact, bring a non-knitting friend and help them get started with one of the free lessons offered!
Afterwards, (well, 3pm-ish) grab a snack and head over to the northern end of the Union Square lawn where you can knit with other Sit n' Knitters. There may be other groups meeting as well, so look for our Meetup sign.
IF THE LAWN IS CLOSED - walk south (towards Whole Foods), either check the smaller lawn, or look near the statue or on the steps. A bit vague, I know, but it's pretty hard to predict what activities are going on at that end of the park. But a group of people knitting is pretty easy to find!
BTW - there is a bathroom in both of the Union Square Starbucks and Barnes and Noble.
