Carnegie Library of McKeesport will participate in "World Wide Knit in Public Day," an annual event started in 2005 and designed to encourage people who knit or crochet to meet other hobbyists.

The library's event will be held on the main lawn at 1507 Library Ave., weather permitting, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (June 18), a spokeswoman said. Everyone is invited and the event is free.

A picnic lunch will be served, but registration is requested at (412) 672-0625.

Created by Missouri hobbyist and clothing maker Danielle Landes, there were only 25 local knitting events on the first "World Wide Knit in Public Day." There are now hundreds of events in the United States and more than 50 other countries, including Australia, China, England, Finland, France, Ireland, Norway, South Africa and Sweden.
