Loads Of Crochet

I have been busy giving crochet workshops in Denmark and busy in my regular crochet classes here in Ireland too. So busy I have not been able to get my web page updated which is a disgrace as I have loads of news to share.

However, I will not be able to get to that until tomorrow afternoon, but I can tell you that it involves the mention of an article in the current edition of the new UK magazine SIMPLY CROCHET in which I’m delighted to feature – have you seen the magazine? It’s bright and cheerful and if nothing else, check it out for the paper quality alone – having a background in printing – I’m a sucker for nice paper!

I will also roll out my new regular classes as well as making suggestions for one day workshops that might be of interest to you. And then there is a whole other crochet venture which involves sales of select pieces of my crochet too.

In the meantime, I share a couple of photos form the workshops I did at the wonderful library in Skive, Denmark. As you can see, they were a busy lot! Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of the beginner class on the Friday. They were a great and came through in flying colours with a great grasp of more than just the basics on the day.

Creative Growth

I am very busy with the hook these days… Creative juices are flowing and ides are formulated, tested and tried, deemed worthy of further pursuit or not.  I am preparing three different pieces of crochet for exhibitions, one for the Tinahely Agricultural Show Art Exhibition on August 6th and a couple of things for Culture Night, but more about that later.

Green Growth 2Not only that, I also have the most wonderful crochet class going every Tuesday morning (10.30-12.30) at the Tinahely Farm Shop, where there are two more weeks left of the current session, do join us! Drop me a mail or give me a ring, if you would like to take part: irene@yarnclasses.com / 085 769 1854. You can learn the very basics of crochet in just two hours! Drop in classes are €15 per class. I also give regular afternoon classes every Thursday afternoon at The Yarn Room – you can book in directly at the shop on: 085 1303762.

A lot of people are on their holidays at the moment, which is lovely – I hear great things about the wonderful Mediterranean water, sun and heat – something  we have not been blessed with this summer in Ireland yet, although today there is actually blue skies and shadows on the lawn which is wonderful. I often wonder if I would like to go on a sun holiday and every time I think about it I realize that the one journey I prefer over all journeys is the creative journey. The one where the ideas just flow, where all my being is absorbed by the thing I am constructing in crochet – to me, the best journey of all, and now I will go out into the beautiful sunshine with my hook and let rip.
