World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIPDAY) is on 8 June 2024. The initiative was started in 2005 by avid knitter Danielle Landes, with the goal of bringing people together and into the outdoors. Now, it is said to be the largest knitter-run event in the world, with volunteer hosts in Australia, the UK, the US, Finland, Ireland, South Africa, China and more.

Recently, TriCare Mt Gravatt Aged Care hosted a WWKIPDAY event for its residents to enjoy a cuppa and knitting in the garden. The residents also gather for weekly knitting and crocheting club sessions.
