This podcast combines week 2 and 3 of the Woolly Notebook Knit-along. I take a look at the patterns Castiel and Half Theory from Woolly Wormhead, take a look at the difference in yarn overs (hint they are not all created equally) before moving on to the Tin Can Knits Strange Brew KAL and there is a special look at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Dublin this November. If all of that wasn’t enough there is also a look at what you can be doing in your garden this October/November. 

You can also find the podcast on iTunes,Stitcher and Libsyn. While you’re having a listen, why not leave a review and let me know what you think! (apologies about the audio in this one guys, I dropped my mic!)

Knitting and Stitching Show RDS Dublin Nov 8th – 11th

The Knitting and Stitching show are in their 25th year and the team are putting together a special show this year. To mark the show’s 25th anniversary, the team are working hard to create their best show yet. 25 visitors who purchase advance tickets will have the chance to win some very exciting and exclusive prizes. Winners will be announced prior to the show and will be able to collect their prizes on the day.

There will be a host of hands-on activities with over 150 workshops on offer taught by leading textile tutors. There really is something for everyone, whatever their ability, covering an exciting mix of crafts from dress making, creative machine sewing, and classic and contemporary embroidery to creative paper crafting, fabric printing and dyeing. Thanks to popular demand, the number of workshops is up from last year, and guests are encouraged to book their places early to avoid disappointment. The Creative Living Theatre makes a triumphant return, offering free 30-minute demonstrations from stitching superstars throughout the day, covering everything from needle felting to drawing your own bodice.  

This year’s Knitting and Stitching Show features a Christmas tree decoration competition. Crafters can knit, sew, crochet or felt their way into the festive season, with the winning pieces being displayed on a beautiful Christmas tree. Elsewhere, the professionally curated Galleries boast breath-taking exhibitions from world renowned textiles artists.
