This week for Newsday Tuesday we’ve collected up a selection of stories, some fun, some heartwarming, about the different places people knit, and why. People are knitting, now, while you’re reading, here, there and everywhere!
Runner David Babcock knits while running, and knitted a 12 foot long scarf during the Kansas City Marathon last year. All for a great cause.
Knitting behind bars, the classes for inmates at a Maryland prison that give them so much more than just knitting skills.
A knitter sits on a bench at an abandoned bus stop, creating a rope that has become a focal point for her local community.
Lastly…next month, from June 14-22 it’s the week for Worldwide Knit in Public Day. Where will your knitting take you? Find an event and see!
And here’s Stitch Geek’s very own Deann, knitting in the library!
