the annual event of the season…

This coming Thursday 29 October until Sunday 01 November marks the annual pilgrammage of a large population Ireland’s crocheters, cross stitchers, felters, knitters, quilters, lacemakers, scrapbookers, sewers, spinners, weavers, you get the general idea.  All these people will descend on Dublin’s Knitting & Stitching Show to experience a bit of retail therapy, learn a few new skills and meet up with friends from all over Ireland.

If anyone is up for a knitting meet-up during the Show…

Thursday  30 October:

Anyone want to meet for a cup of tea ? A few of the Irish Knitters from Ravelry are planning on meeting in the big restaurant on the right hand side of the hall at 12.30pm and again at 4pm – just look out for anyone wearing a Ravelry badge!

Q & A

There is a new feature in the DKC blog called Q & A. It is a page for questions and answers. Anyone may answer the email personally or click to the comments section and answer the question.


a new knitting course in town…

Anne sent us an email this week about a new 6 week knitting course presented by the Dublin Woollen Mills and the Curved Street Cafe.

I have taken a few photos and I have forgotten who these WIP belong to…







a short update…

Lately, I have relied heavily on the DKC Ravelry discussion forums and therefore, I apologise for the  lack of  updates within the blogsphere. In addition, I have passed the odd comment on Twitter under the guise of chicwithstix.

Thank you to everyone who has been sending me updates and picture. I will post them some time this weekend.

On the Ravelry forums, knitters from the This is Knit group have started a KAL for the Owl’s sweater and the popularity of this pattern has grown exponentially within the Dublin knitters.

I will be heading over to the Tea Garden for the Friday night meet up, and hopefully some of you will be working on Owl.  Overall, I have heard very good comments about this new fibre fun group and the tea is very good…
