Weekend Edition

It’s summer knitting time…

The arrival of Summer Solstice on Thursday and I’m now on a summer break.

I need some downtime to chillax and work on a few projects …

DKC Knitalong

It’s never too late to take on the new spin on the DKC knit along. A bit of pre-planning by creating your own shawl/sock/sweater kits to knit from now until the end of the year.

Inspired by the Yarn Harlot’s Self-imposed Sock Club, The S.Club.3 is a creative way to plan and organise your own project kits for the rest of the year.

How to Guide:

1) Gather your yarn and handspun stash.

2) Select a few shawl, sock, sweater patterns

3) You will need ziplock baggies or project bags

In each one of your bags, put everything needed to make your project. If the pattern is in a book photocopy it, if it needs to be downloaded print it, if it is a pattern you need to purchase, then buy it.

Go through the stash and figure out what should go with what.

Then seal up all and put them away where you have easy access to them.

Your mission if you shall accept it is to knit down your kits by the end of the year or at your own pace, drawn at random.

Make up a variety of kits, some socks, shawls, sweaters and at the end of the year you would have a few more FOs.

Cast on anytime!

Join this exciting sock, shawl and sweater club in our Ravelry threads and/or Instagram with the hashtag **#SClub3**

S.Club3 membership is open to all Ravelry members and it’s free.

Tour de Fleece

I’ve been training for the upcoming Tour de Fleece spin-along and you’ll be able to follow my urban spinning adventures over on Instagram as Urban_Spinner

I’m not planning any DKC knitworking events for July and August. I just want to be a knitter who will spin a good yarn.

What will I do over the summer?

  • I’ll be popping in at my LYS and enjoying the benefits of yarn fumes
  • Hang out with the Dublin Drunken Knitwits. The are having a summer party. Check out the details on their Meet Up Page.
  • I’ll be knitting and spinning at the Dublin Maker event.
  • Reclaiming my creative workspace at HQ
  • Bullet Journalling
  • Spinning in the Tour de Fleece then admiring my hanspun
