Countdown to Christmas…

This Christmas I plan to knit at least 5  gifts and I have 20 Fridays to do this : )


Pints ‘n Purls!!!


Mountain Man Brewing Co. know that  knitters are drawn to the craft beer scene. @mountainmansue a.k.a. Sue Cullen is the organiser behind the Pints ‘n Purls gathering coming to the Irish Craft Beer and Cider Festival on Thursday 27th August 2015.

Bring your knitting and cleanse your palate for an evening of Irish craft beer and cider tastings.

I hope you’ll join me as I knit, sample craft beer and live Tweet as @TheDKC from the RDS.

No need to sign up….just head over to the RDS on Thursday 27th August from 5pm.

Ticket and admission info is on the website.

The Dublin Knit Collective have 2 pairs of tickets for admission on Thursday 27th August up for grabs.

To enter the competition just tell me which Irish craft beer or cider you plan to sample at Pints ‘n Purls, in the comments below by 8pm (Irish time) Sunday 16th August. competition is now closed


Christmas in July


Oh yeah… Here at Knitting HQ, the 25th of July marks the beginning of our Christmas countdown.

Christmas knitting anyone?


Closed for the holidays…


Here at Knitting HQ, the first of July marks the launch of summer holidays,  summer vacation, summer break, lazy summer…

So this summer, I’ve decided to take a summer break from the weekly social knitworking sessions.  There will be the occasional posts on Facebook and tweets on Twitter.

The DKC may be on holidays, but I’ll be Urban Spinning in the Tour de Fleece Spin along which  starts this Saturday.

I will be in and around Dublin planning future DKC events using my lovely Filofax. Let me know if you’re curious enough to join the planner movement here in Ireland and guess what there is an Irish Filofax group on FB, FilofaxIE.

Happy Summer Knitting and I’ll see you at a knitworking session in September.
