Dublin is knitting…

I am finally getting around to posting these photos from the Wednesday morning knitting group, who meet weekly at the Powerscourt Cafe.

What a cute bag…

Salvaging the bottons from this charity shop jumper and plans to recycle the yarn…

It is not all knitting, but cross-stitching, as Jill can attest to…

The blue kilcarra is Bettina’s St Patrick’s Day project

Kat’s shawl made it from the pub on Wednesday to SnB  on Saturday.


 Ger’s French lacework.

This week’s photos are courtesy of teaandcakes  who managed not take any pictures of her own knitting, ” it was just the dark grey boring scarf, so nothing worth photographing” (her words, not mine…)

Wednesday’s Knit Night in the City Centre at the Lord Edward Pub…
This knitter’s mother gave her size 19 mm needles

and one hour later…

and this knitter just learned how to knit…lace weight/mohair yarn and garter stitch

every knitter loves to show and tell…

an adaptation of the everlasting bagstopper

using up the yarn stash to design her unique felted bag…

stitching, drinking, eating, talking, stitching, drinking, and going out for a quick ciggie…how does one concentrate on this pattern at knit night???

Saturday's Knit Along on the 16A…

The bus ride on the 16A was a too bumpy…the driver drove too fast over the bumps on the the road. But we arrived at Stitch in Dublin 9 with an air of excitement…
Shelves of yarn…

also many sewing notions…
spools of thread

cosy is the word in this place…from tea to settee
