Knitting in Ireland
Details and Registration info for Starlight’s trip to Ireland in 2020.
An Irish adventure awaits! (sold out!!)
Come with us to explore the hidden gems of Ireland's interior! We will explore ruins to find the ancient patterns and motifs that are the inspiration for modern knitting designers and learn to knit them ourselves. We will relax at three country house hotels - from those that are luxurious and grand to those that feel like home will and steal your heart - all of them will treat us to marvelous farm to table meals. We will also meet those struggling to keep the tradition of Irish Wool alive in a country awash in Merino, and learn about the challenges they face and what drives them. Top it all off with a visit to a distillery, a boat trip down the River Shannon, and an event with live music and dance, and even a bit of the Blarney! Magic!
