A bit of fun…

The Summer Sunday Knitting sessions at The Constant Knitter are proving to be quite popular so far.

Last Sunday was particularly a warm day but did not stop us from celebrating Christmas in July.

Our next SSK social is Sunday 27th August. Watch this space!

We would be delighted if you can join us on Sunday 25th June / 23rd July / 27th August from 2pm to 4pm.

P/HOP is Coming to DublinĀ 

Did you see the latest ” I’ll be there! “post over on my Facebook page

I am absolutely delighted that the P/Hop Trunk Show is coming to Dublin this Sunday.

For those of you wondering, p/hop, is a charity knitting project that raises funds for the emergency medical aid organisation, Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders

P/HOP Co-ordinator, Heidi a.k.a. @readysetstitch will be at The Constant Knitter  with a selection of p/hop’s accessories that we, knitters just love to knit. I can’t wait to see the samples of shawls, cowls, socks and hats.

This event will be my opportunity to learn more about p/hop’s charitable efforts and how I can get involved.  

I hope you’ll knitwork with me to find out why MSF is my charity of choice.

Urban spinningĀ 

I use the term, urban spinning to describe my type of handspinning. I define it as creating yarn on a well balanced drop spindle using luxurious spinning fibre which may be commercial or indie dyed roving or batts. Ahem…a fibre snob.

Why not pop in this Sunday 8th January and check out the action of the Dublin section of the Irish Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers

I will be urban spinning at The Constant Knitter from 2pm to 4:30pm

Star attraction at the Irish Craft Beer FestivalĀ 

I would like to think knitters were the star attraction at this year’s Irish Craft Beer Festival last Thursday evening.

For the past three years, Phil & Sue  from Mountain Man Brewing Co.have found a unique way to  bring knitters and craft beer enthusiasts to this annual event by hosting the one and truly Irish Pints n Purls event in Ireland.

A picnic table draped with a bright and cheerful crocheted themed table cloth

 is perfectly situated directly across from Phil…

as Sue knitworks with knitters who have brought their wips and sips from their beer glasses.

This year, Sue organised two prize sponsors, Dublin Dye and Stolen Stitches. What a great opportunity for a chance to win such amazing prizes.

I am always amused by the passerbys and the curious who admired and  commented on the colourful and thin yarn we were knitting with, it’s almost star-like quality attention.

SlĆ”inte…

I’ll be heading over to the the RDS for Mountain Man Brewing Co. annual Pints ‘n Purls gathering on Thursday 8th September. I’m still pondering which knitting project I will work on as I enjoy a pint at the Irish Craft Beer Festival.

This Saturday 10th September, I am very excited to be getting my knitterly hands on Carol Feller’s new book, Knitting with Rainbows and get my own signed copy at This is Knit.
