This coming week @TheDKC

I am exhausted from the previous weekend with Carol Feller, the Dublin WeaveSpinDye meeting and Knit Culture Night. I hope you enjoyed following us on Twitter & Instagram.

This week will be a quiet one for @TheDKC as I want to actually knit and progress my way thru  Avant L’orange shawl.

I plan drop to in at Sew and check out the new extended shop space as there’s more fabric and yarn!

Also, I really need to update the list of knit groups in Dublin. So please, comment below if there are any groups that want to be promoted on The DKC.

I should be recovered by Thursday to join Knit Night at The Brooks Hotel.

Also, if you are looking for some weekend knitting groups there is the Knitters @ Accents on Saturday and Sunday join the Dublin Chick with Sticks at Costa Coffee on Dawson Street.


Stashbusting. …

I tend to collect endless mini cakes of sock yarn leftover from hand knit sock projects.

Knitting cosies is one way to use up leftovers.  This project uses solid and variegated sock yarn held double.  I cast on 60 stitches on 5mm circular needles. Knit several rounds, and finished off in moss stitch.


I added this cute charm…


If I knit one of these again, I plan to drop a needle size when knitting in moss stitch… The edge is a bit too floppy.


What is in this cosy?  My birthday present from my parents… A new Filofax.
