Knit Wits news

Members of Knit Wits enjoy an outdoor event.

World Wide Knit in Public Day is Saturday, June 8. The Knit Wits will be showing their talents at various benches located in La Encantada, a nice shopping area here in Tucson. Come visit those who will be enjoying the sunshine and socialization.

Knit in Public Day started in 2005 as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. It is the largest knitter run event in the world. Over the years you could find Knit in Public events in Australia, China, France, Ireland, Norway, South Africa, Germany and the U.S.

The Knit Wits spend time knitting and crocheting for others, for themselves, for charity and other helpful organizations. We share ideas, laughs, fiber stories and, in general, we have a great time together.

Ready to check us out? You will find the Knit Wits meeting each Wednesday morning from 9:00-11:00 a.m. in the SaddleBrooke One Arts and Crafts Center, Room 4. We accept new members anytime.
