World Wide Knit in Public Day

Villa Ada Knit Weekend

Date: June 9, 2018. Time: 10:00 – 19:00

We will meet here:

Villa Ada Park

Via Salaria, 267/273/275

00199 Roma


5 knit points in the Villa Ada Park: Legambiente headquarter (also knit cafè), Temple of Flora, Playground area, small pond area, island of the lower pond.

Description of the KIP:

This event is promoted by Gomitolorosa Onlus. It recovers the native wool in overproduction, otherwise burned, supports knitting as a therapy for the recovery of psycho-physical well being, supports knitting in public in order to encourage socialization among fans of this activity. During the weekend, expert knitters will teach for free to beginners and reveal their secrets for the advanced level. A building will become a knit café. The wool will be offered by Gomitolorosa.

What to bring:
You can use the balls of Gomitolorosa until exhaustion and the knitters are friends of Gomitolorosa, so you have to bring with you the irons to knit and the crochets.

Backup plan:
If it rains (hopefully not!) see you at the knit cafe at Legambiente headquarter inside the Villa Ada Park (only Saturday 9th, June) and we will ask hospitality to other buildings inside the Park.

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