Description of the KIP

The 8th of June is also World Wide Knit In Public Day and it’s the day to celebrate the Queens Birthday, so for a bit of fun we thought we would call it the Royal Big Knit, and we shall be wearing knitted and crocheted crowns – Free Patterns to be emailed out to our Newsletter subscribers. We shall be getting together to make blankets for the homeless. So, you see, the up and coming Swindon Big Knit is an important event in the Yarn calendar, we are Purling One for the Queen, Knitting one for the World Wide Knit In Public Day and Gaining one for the Swindon Homeless; and having a good time.

What to bring
You can bring yarn, needles and hooks, but some will be available for the Homeless blanket project.

Backup plan:
We are indoors with access to lovely clean loos, so no back up plan is needed.

Is this KIP going to be exclusive to knitting?
Are there any bathrooms nearby?
Yes, Free
