Knitting and crochet enthusiasts gathered Saturday at a "mini knit-in" at the Utah Arts Alliance. The group is getting a head start on knitted items that will be placed around the city on parking meters, light poles, benches and trees for Salt Lake City's Art's Festival. It is also part of the Random Acts of Art. A grand knitting installation will be revealed June 18 on Washington Square in Salt Lake City as part of the World Wide Knit-in-Public Day. "Mini knit-ins" will take place through June, with a final knitting rally planned during the Utah Arts Festival.
