Me, too, went to the Knitting and Stitching show in Dublin RDS last weekend. It was my first time there, and I had heard a lot about it.
I thought it was nice, expensive, but quite ok. Most knitters do say, though, that it was much worse this year, than ever before.
Well, I paid dearly to get in, 15 euro is a bit much I think, but there were a lot of nice exhibitions and guilds presenting their work in there. Also many sellers, even though I really didn't go there to buy stuff, but to have a nice day at a knitting fair.
There was not so much knitting there as I had thought and hoped. We'll see, if I am in Dublin next year,I might go or not.
I did meet some of the Feltmakers Ireland members on their stand, having a felting presentation. I took a look, and decided to buy the beginner pack. So on Sunday (I went to the show on Saturday) I packed out the stuff.
Olin viime lauantaina Dublinin vuosittaisilla käsityömessuilla, ja ostin aloittelija huovutuspaketin! Seuraava kuvasarja näyttää miten asiassa edistyin:
Pic 2: About 10 minutes later the view had changed.
At the end of the day I had two litte swatches, of which I am very proud of - my first felt ever!
