 It feels equally as long as it does recent.

The Life of Yarn

When I moved back to  Ireland in 2001, I was determined to learn local craft traditions.

In my quest, I discovered that my Aunt Patricia had a 30 year old knitting machine, which miraculously survived Kerry's seaside humid and salty air.

She kindly gave me the tattered machine and my other half patiently cleaned and repaired each tiny piece, making the machine work again....and has been, continuously, since...


This weekend I gave it it's last job for 2009


using wonderful Italian cashmere

knitting and hand linking
