One night only: lunarknit

Tonight, the moon will be 1,000K closer to earth. So in honour of some lunar watching, an impromptu “twitknit” will take place on Twitter. Just login on Twitter and join in with the twitknit folks. We’ve assigned the hashtag, #lunarknit and I’m tweeting as @TheDKC

Let us know, what you are knitting tonight, or if you are just enjoying the lunar brilliance.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Wishing everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We are so lucky here in Ireland, today is a holiday. Rest, drink and be merry and Happy knitting…

And btw, it is Paddy’s Day, not Patty’s Day….Take note here

At long last, D. has published a FAQ on Aran knitting.

Thank you, D for the time and effort for such a detailed article!
