City Centre SnB out on the Town

It was a super Saturday for knitters from the City Centre SnB….

Six knitters joined the Shop ’til You Drops themed pilgrimage to Winnie’s Craft Cafe in Booterstown.  It was a stash enhancing experience as knitters brought skeins of Drops Garnstudio.

Then it was back to the City Centre SnB to recover from the intoxicating effects of yarn fumes with some knit, knatter and a cuppa.

For a few knitters, the sounds of yarn skeins  from This is Knit were heard from Accents Coffee and Tea Lounge.  A skein of Fiberspates managed to turn itself into a yarncake with the help of Jenny and will become a shawl.

Once again overcome with more yarn fumes,  the knitters made their way to Cedar Tree for lunch.

The afternoon ended on Dame  Lane,  to view the Blooming Bunting Project.
