Weekend events.............

I went to Dublin for the weekend and attended a beginners crochet class on Saturday morning at This is Knit in Blackrock. Ann and Lisa took the class and I learnt how to make a basic chain and do doubles etc. I can now finish my Debbie Bliss Tie fronted Cardigan.



Of course how could I pass up a real live yarn shop and not buy anything? So what did I get? 12 balls of DB Cashmerino for this and a few odd balls of Cashsilk and Puresilk for smaller items. :)

I had a ball and would have loved to have got on the DART and gone into Stephen's Green for the World Knit in Public event, but I had imposed on my aunt's goodness and her babysitting service long enough. :)

I am not buying yarn for a while now and going to finish up some of the many WiPs now on my list. :)

Very pretty. And of course you had to buy yarn! So you didn't have to pay those outrageous shipping fees!

The cardi looks lovely. Glad you can now finish it with the crochet edging. Sounds a great day out with yarn buying and all!
