But this event isn't just an epic stitch 'n' bitch; there are a variety of yarn-related activities and events scheduled throughout both days. There will be workshops and talks on a wide range of subjects for both novices and experts. Got a problem project that you just don't know how to fix? Expert knitters will be on hand to troubleshoot and give advice. Did you know that there's a knit-lit genre? Well, there is. Best-selling knit-lit author Debbie Macomber will also be there to give a talk.
The Knit Out will be at the Mall of America (60 E. Broadway, Bloomington). Hours of the event are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Most talks and events are free, but some do have sign up fees. For a complete schedule, check out the Mall of America website here.
