Knit+Wine is a monthly social gathering of knitters (and crocheters) at Bar Olivino, a casual wine bar in Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Everyone brings whatever they are working on and we sit around together and talk, work, share, help one another -- and drink wine! We meet on the last Sunday of every month, from 5-7:00 p.m.
We are a very diverse group and welcome all who want to join us (although we have had a few men come on occasion, this tends to be an all-female group). All levels are welcome, but please keep in mind that there are no lessons, so it's fine for beginners, but not best for those without any prior knowledge. There is no instruction.
Space is limited to just 20 attendees, so it is best to reserve your spot early!
Please note: There is a $2 charge to attend a MeetUp. This nominal fee was instituted to help cover the fees Meetup charges its event organizers to use their system, and also to ensure that everyone who rsvp's does indeed show up. I hope this does not deter anyone from attending.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
