Keep Your Eye On The Prizes

Posted on

     Our favorite holiday is almost here! We've celebrated World Wide Knit In Public Day with you all for the past several years, but this will be our first since the shop moved. In previous years we all met in the small courtyard outside the old location, which was always lovely, but WWKIPDay is all about showing the public our talented tribe of fiber artists- and we weren't really achieving that since we were all tucked away out of view. This year we're setting up right in the center of Old Town- around the gazebo on the corner of F street and 2nd street (click HERE to see the spot on google maps). Now there will be no way to miss us! Find us there knitting, eating, and chatting away from 10:00am - 6:00pm on Saturday June 13th. 

     While our meeting location has changed, everything else is pretty much the same. Of course it's still a potluck- so bring some food or refreshments to share. The food table is always overflowing with an awesome assortment of treats and dishes of every kind for almost every sort of diet. Along with your potluck contribution, bring your hunger, and a project to work on. This event is free for all ages and all types of fiber arts are welcome!

     What's your favorite part of World Wide Knit In Public Day? My guess is the prizes. As usual, we have some incredible bundles of goodies to give away during each hour of the day. If you've never joined us for WWKIPDay before, here's how it works: At the top of each hour you have just a few minutes to enter your name into the drawing. Starting at 11:00am and continuing until 6:00pm, we will randomly select winning names out of the drawing. You're allowed to put your name into the drawing for each hour you're there, until you win a prize. You must be present during the drawing to win. This year we will have a bonus Grand Prize, and we think you might be a little excited about it....

So what are the prizes? Here's a little peek to get you pumped up:

1. A Tulip Bamboo Interchangeable Circular Needle Set. This US size 3 - 13 set comes with a nifty zip up case, and tons of extra stoppers, adapters, extra knitting needle tips, and even a Tunisian crochet hook tip! 

2. A Lantern Moon Bag with three beautiful skeins of Sweet Georgia BFL Lace. 

3. A set of Sweet Georgia sock weight yarns, a skein of the Sweet Georgia sock weight Tough Love, a skein of the Sweet Georgia BFL Sock, a set of Sox Stix (which are rosewood double points), and a silk Knit-Out Box.


4. A set of Sweet Georgia sock weight yarns, two skeins of the Sweet Georgia sock weight yarns Glitterati and Silk Crush, a set of Sox Stix, and a cute Lantern Moon bag. 

5. A skein of the Sweet Georgia yarn Glitterati, a skein of the Sweet Georgia Silk Crush, a set of Sox Stix, a Lantern Moon bag, and a few pouches for storing notions.

7. A cute drawstring bag with two skeins of some Sweet Georgia Lace weight yarn, and a small needle case with some crochet hooks, a pair of scissors, and a set of tapestry needles.

8. A fair trade handwoven basket from Ghana overflowing with a variety of Sweet Georgia wool and silk fibers for spinning, and a Wool Tree Mill drop spindle.

THE BONUS GRAND PRIZE is the highly coveted Lantern Moon circular interchangeable set of Ebony needles in a silk needle case. The set contains everything you need and US size 4 - 13 knitting needles. (The retail value of this set is over $300!!).
