    Dear Phyllis. So happy that you are here and interested in knitting. I will definitely do something about it and ask my tecnical support how to change it. Everybody should be able to join and get the information about the KIPS. Thank you for making me aware of that. Best Knitting Wishes from Astrid

    Hi Sally. If you click on ‘Find a KIP’ in the menu, you can see the KIPs in the different regions. Here is a link to the KIPS in Europe: https://www.wwkipday.com/find-a-kip/kips-in-europe/. I hope you find one 🙂
