Exciting times

Filed under:Finished Objects,News! — Aileen @ 09:49

My hands are now besnailed.

I am particularly fond of the palms and thumbs.

Last night I got stuck into finishing up what is now my favourite garment of all time!

The pattern shall be forthcoming very, very soon and I’m looking forward to sharing lots more photos!

Now, if you heard Lisa on RTÉ Radio 1 on Tuesday (listen here!), you will already know that This is Knit will soon be opening a second branch in the Powerscourt Town Centre in the city centre. If you hadn’t, well… surprise! My own very exciting news on this front is that when I return from galavanting around, I will be joining Lisa and Jacqui full-time. Squee!!!



  1. The snails look great. Congrats on the new career Aileen, sounds like my dream job so if you guys ever want to open a branch in Limerick, I’m first in Line.

    I did hear Lisa on the radio but I missed that bit.

  6. the knitting looks great.

    Wow, congrats on the new job. Wish I´d get a job too – would even take a poorly paid one or a boring office job.

  11. Yeah, bloglines missed this one for me too. I’m so jealous! Of all the travelling AND the yarn career! Sounds like it’ll be loads of fun.
