Knit. . . International Knit in Public Week

Yes, it really does exist - with the mission of encouraging more people to embrace the wonderful woolliness that is knitting! International Knit in Public (IKiP) Week runs from 11th to 18th June, so you haven't quite missed it . . . yet!

Alongside IKiP week this year, 11th June was declared "International Yarn-Bombing Day" and as you might have guessed, I got up to some yarny mischief. I have detailed it all over at my Yarnificationz blog here, here and here. But here are a few photos to give you a flavour of what I got up to, with the able assistance of the Wifie! We got up at 6.45 am on the 11th June to sneak out and put the yarnifications in place before the rest of the village woke up. . . My "accomplice" at work knitted one of the bike rack cosies and I sewed them both in place on the 9th June.

All the yarnifications are still in place so far :)
