There is an advert in the window and on the notice board of Celbridge library advertising a knitting/crochet/embroidery etc group on Friday 23rd April between 10.30-12.30. Im sure a couple of the Celbridge knitters will turn up!


I’ve got a great diversion these days from knitting, my daughter Aoibhínn was born November 17th 2009

Here she is, wearing a cardigan her nana made for her, that she’s rapidly growing out of!

One of the things I wanted to post here was this article, featuring Rosemary, of  The Constant Knitter. It’s a great shout out for women entrepaneurs and a great place to buy garnstudio yarn!

Hello, are you out there?? Its been so long since I blogged that I almost forgot the password to log in here!
The group is still meeting the first and third Tuesday of the month, and surprise surprise, we are STILL talking about moving it to a weekly meet to avoid confusion with the 5 week months…watch this space, maybe this time next year 😉
So, whats new? I got married last May and am now expecting our first baby, due in November. Aine is getting married next month, and we have had a few new people come and knit with us. Ive been lax in going to the group over the summer but hope that will change come Christmas time.
Next time, there may even be photos!! The excitement, eh?

Finished at last – here’s a sneaky peek at my latest finished object:

Here is our lovely little man – arrived with us last Saturday evening. All are doing well, if a bit tired and somewhat shellshocked!! Ok, so he’s not wearing any handknits in this shot – actually he’s not wearing any clothes at all!

As my first post, I must say what a wonderful job Sara is doing with the blog.  With no help from me, I might add!

I’m Elaina, an American living in the lovely country of Ireland.  Though I recently moved house, I solemnly swear to attend as many Celbridge Witty Knitter gatherings as I can manage.  Cross my heart and blah, blah, blah!

With the cooler weather I am once again inspired to knit and knit and knit some more.  I’m working on felted slippers for my daughter and hope to finish a sweater or two in the coming months.  I haven’t put a dent in my stash lately.  Shame on me.

So, Happy Knitting and enjoy the cool weather from under a handmade blanket.  I know I will.

and I’m a yarn addict …It took me a while to decide: yarn addict or knitaholic. I decided that I can’t really be a knitaholic because I don’t finish enough things (and my DH doesn’t let me forget that either!) I got seriously hooked again almost this time last year when I came accross Poppy for the first time. Shortly afterwards I found out about the Witty Knitters and serendpitously I had just decided that I needed a hobby, a reason to get out of the house on a regular basis! Poppy came with me to my first meeting and it still isn’t finished.

So is the summer nearly over yet (HAH – did it ever start…?) Are we on for reconvening…?

Oh – and I have finished some stuff in the past year: among them a very cute pair of flip flop sock-ettes & a summer top for my DD (for next year – fingers crossed!) So there!
