Newbury Drunken Knitwits every Wednesday


A new Meet Up group seems to have sewn together the perfect combo with a drinking and knitting club. 


The Drunken Knitwits is a social knitting/crochet group originally founded in Oxford by Janey Messina in 2012. It now meets every Wednesday in Newbury at a different pub. 

The idea is you bring along a yarny project, order a pint, and meet some knitwits!

You can learn more about their goings on via their website.
