After months of hard work I can finally anounce the release of a new book of knitting patterns: These Islands: Knits from Ireland, Scotland, and Britain. This book was co-written with Suzanne McEndoo and Evin O’Keefe (winner of Ireland’s best craft blog in 2014).
This book features a number of knitting patterns that are knit with yarn from these islands. This means the sheep lived their lives in Ireland or the UK. The wool was shorn, spun, and dyed right here. This book is an extension of the ethos of Smudge Yarns to use wool that is as local as possible.
To celebrate we are hosting a Book Launch Night on April 9th. The event is graciously hosted by Knit, on Main Street in Midleton. Spaces are limited, so guests are invited to book tickets in advance. All ticket holders will be entered into a raffle to win a special craft hamper. This hamper includes some limited edition skeins of yarn and some delicious craft beers.
