We are a small country with approximately two million sheep but little indigenous wool left to be found. Where has it all gone? Since I rediscovered my knitting needles three years ago, I’ve been on the look out for Irish yarn. This summer, I decided to actively hunt out genuine home-grown yarn, reared, sheared, spun and dyed in our own little Emerald Isle and use it to create something fabulous!
Then I decided that would be a very short blog so I’ve settled for yarn partially produced In Ireland!
Here starts my Irish Knit Odyssey!
Here I am, teacher, Mammy to four, the bookworm princess, the mad ninja scientist and his crazy four year old sidekick.and the newest edition, The Queen of Connacht herself. On the side I knit, design, sew, paint and read a lot. There’s also a very tolerant fear ceile in there too, who heroically puts up with it all.
