In the coming days, I will be celebrating ten years in Ireland. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been a part of Dublin’s knitting scene for a decade.
My first interaction with the knitters of Ireland was on an online Yahoo discussion forum called Stitch n Bitch IE several months prior to my move to Dublin.
I remember my very first knit social outing was a the City Centre Stitch n Bitch in a coffee shop on Westmoreland Street. It was well attend by several knitters from the Yahoo group, who to this day I still keep in touch with and are good friends.
To celebrate my ten years of knitworking in Dublin, I will be giving away a skein of my handspun, approximately 100m of corridale in fingering weight
All you have to do is post a comment below. Competition closes Saturday 5th November 2016 at midnight, when I will randomly select a winner. Sorry, but the contest is only open to residents of the Republic of Ireland & Northern Ireland.
My ten year anniversary celebration will be ongoing throughout the year and well into 2017. So watch this space…
On a knitworking note, join me in town this coming Saturday 5th November, as I knit off at City Centre SnB – Accents Coffee & Tea Lounge from 12pm to 2pm. Then I plan to head over to my favourite lunch spot for some Lebanese food (just pop me a message if you plan to come along).
