Meeting the knitters from abroad.

Tuesday 2 October 2007: Knitters from the greater Dublin area had a lovely morning, meeting a group of 32 knitters from the USA who were touring through Ireland organised by Yarn by Designs. It was a great experience connecting with people who share the same excitement and passion we have for anything fibre.

We spent a couple of hours on introductions, a “show me what you are knitting”, general knitting natter, and of course a buying yarn fest… Craftspun Yarns and Winona Queen were selling their yarns.
