  1. Hey Alina,
    Looks class. I was up in Dublin and all and now I regret not going. Will definitely go next yr, especially if you've got a stand there. You got some deadly pictures. Looks like you picked up some great new stuff, tips and skills. Fair play to you. I still haven't ventured past the old knitting needles. Cool blog by the way. Enjoy trying out your new stitches. Would love to meet for a coffee and chat some time.
