Today is the day after WWKiP Day and all I can say about yesterday’s knit.crochet.drink tea event is Amazing!
There were 45 knitters & crocheters who joined in the celebration of knitting socially. It was great to see people who came down from Belfast and across from Germany.
It was a great day to get star struck…
Four of Ireland’s fabulous indie dyers all together in one roof (I can not believe that I did not get a selfie!), Fiona, Laura , Terri, and Yvonne.
How about some name dropping?
The Irish knitting community have the best celebs and they were there…
Undermeoxter from Blasta PodCast
Designer Denise Pinnegar of Unravel
Ger & Mary, the ukuele knitting sisters from the Dublin Ukulele Collective
At one point, it was standing room only, and a few nimble and younger knitters took to the floor and continued knitting away.
It was a day for having fun and meeting up with old friends, making new ones and to give a helping hand to your yarn untangled.
As word of our first ever DKC Fastest Knitter Competition spread, I knitters took to their needles to limber up.
Louise, was declared the winner with knit 114 stitches in 3 minutes.
We had an awesome prize pool for the Charity Raffle, which we raised €157 for Cats Aid
