Sock Club: September

We are heading into the last quarter of Sock Club 2010 and many of the Dublin knitters have been keeping up with their sock knitting.

The theme for September is Back to School, Work or just your regular routine. 

Well done, and thanks for sharing your sock patterns, ideas and pictures on Ravelry.

a knitting summer…

Knitters in Dublin have been busy throughout the summer; attending workshops, joining knit a longs and traveling to fibre-themed destinations.

I spent a good part of the summer sharing my passion for The KNiT. My knitting summer has included a yarn crawl of the city’s yarnshops, introductions to Ravelry, offering personalized knitting lessons and offering my expertise as a knitting nurse for those knitters who needed a helping hand with their projects.

I had a lovely time @thebrookshotel

This afternoon, I spent a couple of hours with O (Rav name: anaeli) as she was casting on for her first cardigan. Since the beginning of the summer she has one FO, attended two SnB events and recently joined Ravelry.

The DKC is looking for submissions from guest bloggers. We want to hear how about your knitting summer.
Please send us an email:

knitttttinnnnngggggg this Saturday…

This message was posted by one of the Dublin knitters, Marta…

Dear All,

I’m very happy to announce that Tiesan Café is opening for the first time on a weekend this Saturday, 24th July, from 10am-4pm. This is an experiment so they can see how it would be to open on Saturdays there.

Since we have been promising you for a while that we would open the café on Saturdays, I thought you’d like to be the first ones to learn about it. I’d like to invite you all to come along and knit in the great space we have upstairs in Tiesan Café, Filmbase, Curved Street.

Please let me know if you’d be interested and what times would suit best so we can have a group together there at some point.

Please spread the word 🙂

Thank you,

Meet Louisa Harding…

Yes, virginia there is a male knitter in dublin…

I joined the knitters at Shebeen Chic last evening to find an energetic group of knitters.

When I arrived, kathy was teaching Youssa how to knit. By the end of the evening he had mastered stocking stich.

His goal: to knit a hoodie for himself…
