Yay, the new Knitty is out!!

Lots of good things in there for people unsure what to cast on next ūüėČ

Here’s a couple of our knitters, including a brilliant first time knitter Eavan, at our knitting group last Tuesday.


Marina showed her how she thought the scarf she was knitting could turn into a hat.


Hopefully Eavan will bring it along at the next meeting (Tuesday 18th) to show us how she got on!


Hey all

Just to let you know that the first meeting is now going ahead on the 4th of September (tomorrow) at 7pm in the Mucky duck as usual.

For any newbies out there who want to join us, don’t be shy, come along, we are normally upstairs over by the far wall, and all you will see is people chatting, needles clicking furiously, hey you may even hear us before you see us ūüėČ

Hope to see you all there!


Summer (ha!) is gone, and the evenings are already closing in slightly, so I thought it may be a good idea to throw out a few dates to decide when to start back up the group in September. 

The Witty Knitters meet on the first and third Tuesday of the month in the Mucky Duck in Celbridge, at 7pm.

Do people want to start back on the first Tuesday of September?

You know, I actually had a lot more posted here, including a couple of photos and a link to 2 other blogs, and when I published the post, all that published was the above text??? Has this happened to anyone before, and if so, can you advise what on earth happened??

I was saying, about starting back first of all. Do people want to start back on the 4th or the 18th of September, allowing for the fact I’m assuming the first week of September is the first week of school for some people?

Im going to put up those links again also.

Go over and have a look at the Dublin Knit Collective, you can see some of the things people are working on from some of the Dublin groups, plus there is a felted bag show and tell comp.

Here is a nice quick, easy and satisfying project for you also, its on¬†saartje’s blog¬†and is a pdf on the right hand side of her blog.

Here’s a picture of one I did earlier…


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!

Hello World indeed!!

We are a small group of knitters who meet on the first and third Tuesday of the Month in Celbridge.

Attendance has been a little slow over the last few weeks, so we have decided to take a break for the summer. The next meeting date will be scheduled here.

In the meantime, I will be getting people to start contributing a little bit to this blog, its going to be a group effort (hopefully!)
