I’ve spend months scheming and planning a new Club that’s very special to me; Celtic Knits Club. It’s a little bit terrifying releasing it to you all after spending so much time dreaming about it in my own head! I hope you all love it as much as I do.
Most of what I do is very international but with this Club I wanted to bring it all back close to home. I’ve sourced yarn from Donegal as well as a planner and goodies all from Cork city (where I’m based). I love cables and I know there is a lot of people that they intimidate. I wanted this Club to be accessible to both experienced cable knitters as well as new ones. In addition to the yarn, goodies and patterns this Club will be tied together with video tutorials. This should help newer knitters with cables and I’ll include a few tips for more experienced knitters!
I talk through the club a little in this video:
So how does it all work?
At 8pm (Irish Time) on the 3rd of December the clubs will go live. You can either buy the club outright or go for an installment plan. The installments are taken in 3 payments, at the time of purchase and monthly for 2 months after.
After you purchase I’ll ship the special club 6 month planner to you. This planner is undated so you can put in only the weeks that you are working on projects. The second half of the planner has knitting graph paper and open pages so you can plan and sketch for yourself.
The first Club installment will be in March. You’ll receive a shipment of yarn and you will get an electronic pattern. In addition to this I’ll enroll you in a Celtic Cable classroom on Teachable so you can access all the videos and ask me questions.
There will be 2 more shipment; arriving every 2 months in May and July. The projects will get a little bigger with each shipment, allowing you to build your skills and confidence. The final project will be either a garment or a blanket, depending on your preference. You can use all of the cable skills you’ve learned!
With the help of Donegal Yarns we’ve sourced a yarn that’s 60% Irish; its rustic but still comfortable to knit with and wear. It’s ideal for cables, especially if you are new to them as there is enough ‘stick’ to hold the stitches.
Several years ago there was a project called ‘Project Homegrown’ https://vimeo.com/67196603 , to try and improve the availability of Irish wool. In this project Donegal Yarns worked closely with the wool merchants on sourcing Irish wool. By working on a good selection from the various breeds with improved sorting and grading they have established a good wool that is comfortable to knit with and wear. The blend contains 60% Fine Irish that is blended with 40% New Zealand Lambswool.
For this club they are custom milling a special dk (double knitting) weight for us, this is a really nice yarn weight to work with and won’t be as heavy as more traditional aran knitting.
This yarn won’t be available outside of the club.
