The DKC will be hosting Knitworking, a good old fashioned stitch n bitch social.  Knitwork with us, meet old friends and make new ones. 

So, bring your knit or crochet WiPs (works in progress) and join me (@TheDKC) &  my knitterly friends everyday during the Show from 2:30pm. 

We will be spreading our love for Irish designers and Ravelry.com.  If you are familiar with DKC events, there will be a draw to win Ravelry promo codes for knitting patterns from LittlefellersLunasaSparkles-Glitters, and UnderMeOxter.
