Happy Anniversary

Ger and Yuko
Happy 2nd Anniversary to Knitter's Night Out. Several years ago, after getting somewhat settled in Ireland, I began to look for something to do outside my house. I had become a self induced hermit. I was sure that knitting groups would be easy to find in a country steeped in wool and history of sweaters. WRONG!!! All the yarn shops were closing down and the knitting epidemic that I had left in the U.S. had not caught on. Great. What to do?? I'll start one. I need an outlet. So I came up with a name. Not my strong point. Found a venue and hung up flyers everywhere I could think of. It was a slow start, but we're still going and have 8-12 most nights. We all love the weekly meetups and love the girls involved. It's a little family of women with sharp pointed sticks. Beware!

Miriam and Lucy, up to no good!





As it happened, I was thanking Andy (lovely Coffee Shop manager) for being so accomidating and he said that he was giving a gift of the Strawberry Cheesecake to us. At 3.95 per slice that was quite a gift. I had talked with him the week before to arrange it. The cake, not the gift part. He is a delightful person. BIG THANKS to ANDY!!

Thanks to everyone who comes on Tuesday nights!!
