watch this space…

I am back from my summer holidays, and I was without the internet for a good part of the week. I am just getting caught up on what some of the Dublin knitters have been up to.

Just watch this space for some knitting news…Here’s a teaser of what’s to come


Update: impromptu SnB

I just received a message from Marta, and tomorrow’s impromptu SnB at Tiesan Cafe in Filmbase will be from 12noon to 2pm.

knitttttinnnnngggggg this Saturday…

This message was posted by one of the Dublin knitters, Marta…

Dear All,

I’m very happy to announce that Tiesan Café is opening for the first time on a weekend this Saturday, 24th July, from 10am-4pm. This is an experiment so they can see how it would be to open on Saturdays there.

Since we have been promising you for a while that we would open the café on Saturdays, I thought you’d like to be the first ones to learn about it. I’d like to invite you all to come along and knit in the great space we have upstairs in Tiesan Café, Filmbase, Curved Street.

Please let me know if you’d be interested and what times would suit best so we can have a group together there at some point.

Please spread the word 🙂

Thank you,

Meet Louisa Harding…

Yes, virginia there is a male knitter in dublin…

I joined the knitters at Shebeen Chic last evening to find an energetic group of knitters.

When I arrived, kathy was teaching Youssa how to knit. By the end of the evening he had mastered stocking stich.

His goal: to knit a hoodie for himself…
