Today is the day after WWKiP Day and all I can say about yesterday’s knit.crochet.drink tea event is Amazing!
There were 45 knitters & crocheters who joined in the celebration of knitting socially. It was great to see people who came down from Belfast and across from Germany.
It was a great day to get star struck…
How about some name dropping?
The Irish knitting community have the best celebs and they were there…
At one point, it was standing room only, and a few nimble and younger knitters took to the floor and continued knitting away.
It was a day for having fun and meeting up with old friends, making new ones and to give a helping hand to your yarn untangled.
As word of our first ever DKC Fastest Knitter Competition spread, I knitters took to their needles to limber up.
Louise, was declared the winner with knit 114 stitches in 3 minutes.
We had an awesome prize pool for the Charity Raffle, which we raised €157 for Cats Aid
