Looking for something to do on a Tuesday night in downtown Auckland? For a while now, we Knit Rangers (see our group on Ravelry) have been having an irregular winos session (so named for the it's random scheduling and location, and beverage consumption). While KIPing at the World Wide Knit In Public Day event at the museum on May 13 , some of us decided to make it a more regular occurrence, and share the love. So, if you want to come knit/crochet at the Northern Steamship (or at the very least, hang out with some knitters/crocheters), come along!
Auckland Central SnB (or regular irregular winos!!) will meet 1st Tuesday of each month at the Northern Steamship pub on Quay Street from 5.30pm - 7.30pm. Anyone is welcome (sticks, hooks or fingers!)
Hopefully Tues is an easy time for more people, the NSS is central and close to all public transport so everyone can knit, yarn, drink or eat. And we've set a time so people don't feel kinky about going home to feed the family, put the cat to bed or watch good reality TV!
2009 Dates: July 7th, August 4th, September 1st, Oct 6th, November 3rd, Dec 1st
So, if you're in the city and want to meet up with some fellow crafters, why not come along to the next session? We had people from a couple of regular knitting groups at the first, and it'd be great to meet some more new people.
Of course, if you're a random weirdo, be warned that these chicks will be armed with pointy sticks...
