Sit n' Knit-Out

  • Sep 17, 2006 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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. For more information, see http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/knitoutbrochure.html

    Great area to buy "nickle bags " of crack, cocaine, meth, etc. More drugs than yarn being sold all around. The marijuana was good quality, smelled very pungent. You could get high on the air. No police in the park because they were probably too busy collecting $ from the druggies or
    drugs, like they do in Brooklyn.

    It was really great to sit out in the park and meet people who have the same obsession with knitting that I do. Everbody seemed really sweet, and a great group of people to help me out of my knitting shell!

    This was my first sit 'n knit meetup and my first foray after a knitting break - I was inspired by all the great projects!

    It was fun, but would have been better without the loud band, which was unanticipated by all. Still fun to knit and chat, though!

    On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best):
    I give the group a 10
    I give the annoying band that was playing a 2

    I ALWAYS have a great time at these events. I love seeing old knitters, that I've met previously, and meeting new ones.
