A Public Knit-In

A Public Knit-In

Date: Mon., May 31
Time: 4:30-7:30 p.m.
Where: The Foggy Goggle, 1667 Argyle Street, Halifax
Why: To promote the first of five public consultation meetings for the new Central Library

How does the Knit-In work?

We provide the yarn-but you can also bring your own.
Please bring your own needles (there will be a few pairs at the event if you don’t own any).
You and your friends help us knit the squares that will be wrapped around some trees at the site of the new library (corner of Spring Garden and Queen).
The knitted pieces will be installed by a team representing library a few days after the Knit-In. The pieces will have a note attached with a thought-provoking question and details on the public meeting.
If you can’t make it to the Knit-In event, you can drop off 10 x 10 inch knitted cotton squares to any branch library by June 1. Please label them: Attention: Ryan Deschamps at the Alderney Gate Library.

This event is for people of all knitting skill-levels. If you don’t know how to knit, you are welcome to attend and learn as you go.

Help us animate a public space to engage people’s imaginations, spark ideas and act as an invitation to participate in the first of five public consultation meetings about the design of the new Halifax Central Library. The first meeting will take place on June 10 at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:15) at the Dalhousie Student Union Building. Meet the architects and engage in discussions about how the central library will transform our lives and our city.
