WWKiP Day 2016

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…

Four of Ireland’s fabulous indie dyers all together in one roof (I can not believe that I did not get a selfie!), Fiona, Laura , Terri, and Yvonne.

How about some name dropping?

The Irish knitting community have the best celebs and they were there…

Designer Denise Pinnegar of Unravel
Sweensie
Ger & Mary, the ukuele knitting sisters from the Dublin Ukulele Collective

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.

  1. Congratulations to everyone. I was so sorry I wasn’t able to make it. Here’s to next year!

  2. It was so nice to catch up with you all over tea and cake! Thanks for the invite, and have a fun summer 🙂

  3. Absolutely gutted that I couldn’t make it, but we had such a great day crafting here in Lismore too. 19 fantastic ladies channeling our natural dyeing abilities, eating cake and knitting when we got a chance. Hope to see you soon.
