Knit in Public Day at Villa Cooper

Today was the day when knitters in 560 events in 53 countries gathered in parks, shops and other public places to knit together and to make the world a better place. We knitted at Villa Cooper, in the lovely big garden.


We had received lots of yarns ad other crafty materials as a donation, and auctioned them as the main attraction of our KIP Day.


We will pay it forward and give the money for local mental health work.



As you can see, the weather was sunny and so warm that we could sit and knit in the garden. Many knitters came to attend the day. I was able to give them different patterns for knitted bunnies and baby sweaters, and the address where to send the finished items.



I hope we can do this again next year, with more ideas and more knitters!
