Check out thehealthyknitter.com (I think) for more information. I will be knitting for charity/peace at The Hen House Restaurant in Saint Helen, MI from noon-ish until four-ish. In the meantime, this is from the blog:
I'd like to ask a favor of all those that are reading this blog and knitters. Please consider knitting for peace on December 21, Worldwide Knit-in for Peace Day. We began this last year and decided to continue with this tradition. It's my goal to make this day widely known around the globe.... but it only happens if we work together. Here's my request.
Place a pin on the map for your location. If you are knitting as a group, please have all group members place a pin.
Knitters from the US: If you know anyone that knits in North Dakota or Rhode Island, tell them about WWKFP Day and have them place a pin. Then all 50 states will be recognized.
Knitters from Canada: Please take a look and see which provinces still need representation... let's get all of Canada represented.
Knitters from Europe: Take a look and see where there are places that need to be pinned, reach out to folks from countries still needing some peaceful knitters.
Knitters from Asia: ok, if anyone knows someone in Asia, please contact them...we need knitters from Asia.
Thanks for the information.
Cool didn't know about this! 😃

Very nice idea, but the pattern she suggests is $6.50 ? If I was looking in the right place? Could not find the yarn suggested. I will Knit that day for Peace but from my stash and something for " gifting" that I already have the pattern for that I use repeatedly. I have some beautiful donated wool so maybe another purse for a silent charity auction.
Thank you for sharing. I will be sure to be Knitting for the homeless in Wisconsin while praying for world wide peace.
I'll be on the map knitting, even tho I can't find the "real" map. Knitting and praying for peace in this much frazzled world of ours...Happy Needling..jberg
That is less expensive than the one I found.
