It’s probably no surprise to any of you that I really enjoy working with Irish yarn companies and dyers. My first experience of this was with Contemporary Irish Knits which was a huge education for me. When I started visiting the mills I knew absolutely nothing about spinning and the Irish yarn industry. While I’m definitely not an expert now I do know more than when I started out :-)
I still try to use yarns produced or dyed here in Ireland fairly often in my designs but I wanted to do something specifically Irish based again so me and Lisa from This is Knit hatched up a plan…
I am working with This Is Knit to create a Yarn Club that combines luscious Irish Hand Dyed yarn with my designs, created exclusively for the club. Over the past few weeks I’ve had little packages arrive from each of the dyers with beautiful yarn and colours. I’m having so much fun swatching, knitting and planning the prefect projects for the yarn. There will be a variety of projects, they’ll all be accessories and several will be sized from small to large so they would suit anyone in the family. That’s all I’m going to give away for now, after all we wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise, right?
If you want to join just click here and pick your option, full club (yarn, patterns and shipping) or a pattern only club. The first shipment and pattern will be sent out in January. This Is Knit are sending all the yarn and I will send new patterns via ravelry so you will receive each new one automatically. This also gives you the option of saving it in your ravelry library if you wish.
Please come join us on our adventure, it should be a lot of fun!
