It's that time of year again when the sun is shining and begging you to come out and play. But what's a knitter to do?? We've been in our recliners knitting away in the shadows of our yarn filled dens; Dare we venture out to play in the sun?
We've got the perfect solution to transition you to the outside world!
June 8th-16th is the World Wide Knit In Public Celebration.
We want to encourage you to get out there and knit!
these dates, (6/8 & 6/16) we would love to see photos of you
knitting in public. These don't have to be fancy set up photo shoots;
just a simple snap shot will do!
What we would like is a photo of
you knitting in a public place (library, restaurant, grocery store, gas
station, Anywhere!) along with a little information - Where you're
knitting, what you're knitting, and maybe what yarn you're using.

what's in it for you? Well, other than the joy of knitting in public,
your name will be put in our fishbowl for a chance to win a lovely prize
package from us that includes an A Likely Yarn tee shirt, a Chica tote bag, and a one time use 15% off
your entire purchase coupon. How cool is that?!?
Now for the rules:
Photos may be submitted between 6/8 and 6/16 at midnight est. Please
use photos taken during the WWKIP dates and not previously taken photos.
Each person's name will be entered only once though we do encourage
you to send multiple photos. Winner's name will be drawn on Tuesday 6/18. Please email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org We love Facebook
submissions so please post on our wall. You may also submit by posting to our Ravelry fourm. If you would like to drop off a photo
at the shop, be sure to leave contact information so we can contact you
if you're the winner. Also, if you would like to be contacted by a
means other than email, please send that information along with your
photo. Please note, we plan to post your photo(s) to our blog and
facebook and by sending us the photo we are assuming that you are giving
us permission to do so.
