World Wide Knit in Public Day will be celebrated over a couple of weekends in the month of June. In Portland, there will be a gathering downtown at Pioneer Courthouse Square on June 13th, 2009 at 10:00 am.

In honor of the event, Knit/Purl has a special offer in honor of the event. Here’s the scoop:


From June 6th through June 20th, we’ll be giving all our customers a carpe diem offer: buy two skeins of any ShibuiKnits yarn and get the 3rd skein of the same yarn FREE! See all the shibuiknits yarn lines. For our web customers: Just tell us what color you want your free skein to be, in the ‘Notes’ section of checkout and we’ll include it with your order.

And, to reward all the knitters who Knit In Public around the world, anyone who makes a purchase (online or in the store) on June 13th will be entered into our WWKIP Day Raffle for a chance to win any number of prizes – including $25 gift cards, locally hand-dyed sock yarn, and a Namaste bag.
