"Veniimus, bibimus, knitimus." ("We came, we drank, we knit.")
-- The Oxford Drunken Knitwits, 2012-Present
THE DRUNKEN KNITIFESTO
We are the Oxford Drunken Knitwits, and we are knit-aholics. Sip by sip and stitch by stitch, we continue to pursue drunken, hand-cramping knit-thood, whereby all Knitwits have the holy grail of drunken knitting to show off to our friends: a hand-crafted item whose place, time, and method of construction cannot entirely be recalled. If you want to follow us on our path, we can show you the way...
3 Tenets of Drunken Knit-hood
1. Get over yourself: If you’re embarrassed to knit in a pub, then you’re taking yourself way too seriously, and could use a lesson from a Knitwit. ‘Nuff said.
2. Do unto others: We aim to provide a friendly and welcoming environment to anyone who wishes to join. If you’re a true Knitwit, you’ll do the same and aim to meet at least one new person at each event you attend.
3. Hang around: We pride ourselves in being an active and committed group, where we can find familiar faces week after week. So come along, and stay for a while – most Knitwits do.
