a fiber summer…

Summer is officially here and as we head into the summer vacation months of July and August, Dublin Knit Collective would like to hear about your summer vacation. During the summer months, we will feature a “look what I did on my summer vaction” post.

So, whether you are travelling abroad or staying local during the summer holidays, upload your fiber related photos to the DKC’s Flickr Group and tag your photo(s) summer2009.

I’m sure it will be a busy fiber summer for all. Have a safe and enjoyable summer!!



managing one's photos…

I often take photos of anything related to knitting when I attend the SnB’s around Dublin.

It takes me awhile to organise myself to upload the pictures, edit the photos since some knitters like myself wish to remain faceless.

I have upgraded my Flickr account so, I have created a sub-set so that one can find the photos from a particular SnB in the DKC Flickr group.

I did not take too many photos at todays, since my memorycard is full. But you’ll find the photos of knitting in Dublin city here.
