Some excitement at my LYS:
Cat and Jim at the Constant Knitter

Designer Cat Bordhi, Jim Petkiewicz and a group of international knitters visited
The Constant Knitter last week, the first step on their tour of Dublin, Dingle and Galway.

Cat demonstrated her Moebius techniques, Rosemary and her friends provided tea and cakes, and I did a trunk show (click for more images).

Thanks for all your comments about mini – each one is appreciated!
The house still feels empty without her.
