Knit in Public Day

This worldwide event is fast approaching (Saturday 9th June).

Some suggestions gathered so far :

A picnic for knitters in Civic or elsewhere (Karen)

Knitting in the display window at Cassidy's in Kingston (Bells)

Knitting 'flash mob' - we have a list of places and times, and suddenly gather in each place to knit for say 20 minutes, then mysteriously disappear, and go to the next place. The schedule could be something like 11am Parliament House, 12pm National Library, 1pm Botanic Gardens etc (places that are free to get into, and have easy parking) - and you can attend as many or as few as you like (Jejune)

Not sure if I can attend much of anything, as we're going to Sydney that weekend, but I'm happy to sort out a flash mob schedule if there's interest. I think it could be quite fun :)

i'm liking this idea better than my Cassidys idea. With a bit of careful planning it could work.
