Gourmet Yarn Shop Tour to Ireland

And knitting everywhere

So much has been going on these past few weeks, I don’t know where to begin.

In late May, I took a group of knitters to tour the South of Ireland for ten days, and we knit everywhere.

Jane Hogan, our tour guide from Irish Tourism, was absolutely amazing, and made all our dreams come true.

We drove through the Irish countryside, exploring the meaning “50 shades of green”. We knit everywhere.

We visited wool mills and sheep farms,

Took a ferry to the Aran Isles,

 

Learned to make scones, brown bread and freshly churned butter

We visited castles, gardens, and distilleries, and knit everywhere

We learned how to make Irish coffee and tap dance on the Ferry

We had knitting workshops with Irelands’ finest knitwear designers

Carol Feller

and Anne O’Maille

We learned how local wool is dyed from regional plants and flowers

The cliffs of Moher left us breathless, and we continued to knit everywhere

We saw the Irish Trad on the Prom Show, and kept knitting

While on the road, we knit Carol Fellers Rathcooney hat using Dovestone , courtesy of Baa Ram Ewe. It’s 100% English wool, and we stock all colors.

We also knit baby booties with Yarn Art Bianca Lana Lux. Each knitter received a sample ball of their 100% wool to try, and it was love at first stitch. We carry all 9 colors.

If you like what you saw,

Our next knitters’ trip will be to Scotland

We are already signing up for May 2018.

Happy Knitting!

Summer 2011

Summer 2011

 

Summer knitting – let me count the ways…..

 

To me, summer knitting is looking through the new spring/summer copies of all my favorite knitting magazines

 

And choosing a new pastel shade to knit my favorite cotton cardigan

 

And picking a challenging stitch for that summer shawl, especially needed for those chilly summer evenings in the garden

 

 

To me, summer knitting is all about small light projects. The kind you can carry with you everywhere, even on vacation

 

Like baby garments, and hats, and especially socks. Lots of socks

 

Summer knitting is also for catching up. On all those unfinished projects lying around and cluttering my closet

 

Summer knitting means lots of knitting time

 

In the kitchen over my first cup of coffee

On the train, or in the bus, on my way to work

On my lunch break, on my coffee break

In the doctors office, waiting for my turn

In the airport, on the plane

On the boat trip, or at the beach

At the concert in the park

In the classroom, during the lecture

Watching TV, or relaxing in the garden

Summer knitting means vacation knitting

 

Because, in the summer, the days are longer, which give me more knitting hours

 

I love summer knitting

 

So if you aren’t a summer knitter, try it. You may even love it. Like me

 

And if you are a summer knitter, spread the word. Spread our love of knitting

 

Happy Summer Knitting

 

A special thanks  to our wonderful knitters, Shmulik, Naomi, and Olga for lending us their projects.

Don’t forget to come visit us before your summer vacation, and grab a pair of birch knitting needles or a palmwood crochet hook for knitting on the plane!
