This Saturday the 14th is Worldwide Knitting in Public Day at Bryant Park.  My volunteer group and I are participating in a subway knitting project on the same day as WWKIP Day. The train ride begins at the first F stop in Queens, heads to Coney Island, then goes back up to Bryant Park.  If you want to join along for the knitting on the train project, below (in red) is a schedule of the F train at specific stations.  We’ll all be in the first car. You don’t have to meet up at the first station stop, just whichever stop is most convenient for you. Here’s the information including train times as well:
