I actually forgot it was WKIP day until I came across the 'temple of knitting' in Federation Square. I guess I forgot because I don't really get it. I knit in public all the time, I don't need a special day to do it. I do get using this day to help others as they did today at'Light Hearts'(temple of knitting to me) where they were knitting squares for 'Save the Children'.
Knitting blankets is a great way to keep warm on a cold day.
