Some have asked if there is a rain date. There is not. In order to be a WWKIP event, we need to be doing it while the rest of the world is as well :)
I’m crossing my fingers that the rain stays off, however there is protective cover under the walkway that borders Nathan Phillips Square. Plus the entrance to the underground mall/PATH system is right where WWKIP is being held.
And of course, bring an umbrella if you can. The bigger the better - maybe we’ll be able to cram everyone under!
Alright, Relay teams have been labelled:
Stix and String
String of Purls
A Show of Stitches
K(#)TOG - we’ll change the number depending on how many people want to be on this one.
Team Queen (someone suggested this because we will be on Queen St that day)
Aaaaand go! Post your top 3 preferences here or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember… there are prizes!
