New Word of the Week #6 - Flash Mob

Flash mob: def - Brief gathering for a common purpose, announced by either an email or text.
For knitters this can include Rav meetups (organized by Ravelry members); the Vesper sock photo shoot at Spring Fling in 2010 where the news was spread person to person through the knitting lounges of when and where to meet to get the photo done, and Knit in Public Day in June that is usually organized by local yarn shops through flyers and emails.

Spontaneous knitting can occur anywhere with just a little help from Twitter, Facebook, Ravelry or a random email. Like-minded folks love to share their love of the craft anywhere they are or go. Join the fun wherever and whenever you can~!
