The Gribblehirst Hub Knitting Group hosted five knitters’ picnics in local parks on Monday evenings in 2020 and early 2021. The picnics brought knitting groups and knitters together to celebrate knitting in a public way.
Knitting not only brings joy, but it has long term physical and mental health benefits as well. All knitters were welcome; learners, fanatics and experts. Someone was always willing to teach those that wanted to learn.
Venues included Coyle Park, Pt Chevalier, Owairaka Park, Fowlds Park, Potters Park and Gribblehirst Park.
