World Wide Knit In Public Day is Saturday June 13th, and while every day is knit in public day for us, we’re still going todo something funsince it is like mother’s day of knitters. We’ll be setting up a picknic in the park at theArtscape Wychwood Barns.
The Barns are located 2 short blocks south of St. Clair Ave West between Wychwood Ave and Christie St (see a map). We’ll be putting down our sheets, blankets and folding chairs with built in beer cups in the park just south of the main buliding, from 11am to 3pm. If it rains or is extremely cold we’ll relocate to Scratch Espresso Bar, at 1358 Baturst St, 3 blocks South of St. Clair Ave West. We will be accepting charitable donations of hand knit garments and yarns. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
There is a really great Organic Farmers Market at the Barns on Saturday Mornings from 9am to 1pm, so you can poke around a bit and enjoy that too! In addition to seasonal produce, they sell meats, teas, coffee, cheese, bread and baked goods, toilettries, honey, and they have a variety of very yummy ready made foods for you to take home or much on in situ. The last time I was there little pizzas and waffles were being offered and I highly recommend the sweet potato muffins/cupcakes. The meat lady sells yarn too! Don’t forget to bring a shopping bag, it is hard to leave without something.
