Irish Knitting & Crochet Blogs 2013

3 Comments

This site has been sadly neglected but now that the Nominations for the Blog Awards Ireland are open it’s time to ensure that you know about the active Knitting and Crochet blogs so you can nominate a few.

We still do have plans for the site but they’re taking us a while to sort out to our satisfaction and keep our jobs going as well. Life sometimes gets in the way

This will be an ongoing list starting with those knitters who are on Ravelry, if no language is mentioned it’s in English, some of these people are people who blog but not necessarily about knitting.  Any blog with a * contains knitting or crochet content on the first page, or in the tags associated with the blog.  If a blog had this I haven’t removed it in the latest edit.

If anyone wants themselves removed from this list please inform us and we will take you off.

a year is the last year postings are on the site and the * is posts within the last 4 months, edited 15th June 2013  so since February 2013)  This has been heavily edited, any blogs that require invites or say that they’re available for sale have been eliminated.  Folks who have moved away from Ireland have also been eliminated.  I’ve done my best to update links as best I can, secondary links, like etsy shops have not always been checked.

Crafty Blog Update 10th-30th July

1 Comment

I would like to welcome any new readers, and thank old ones for visiting, we’re not that old and we hope to continue to do this as time allows. If you know of any blogs that should be included please contact us by email or a post on this or the Irish Knitting, Crochet and crafty blogging post. The same goes if you want to be removed. If you are included in our updates please mention if you want to be removed from there too. Please note that neither I or SineadR do this as a full-time job, and allied to that our jobs actually restrict our webtime. We will do our best to get stuff done as soon as possible but that may take a few days or hours. In order to optimise my trawling I have set up a Netvibes Page for the blogs this is not foolproof and I may miss updates but it’s been better than some of the other options.  I have also decided that if a blog posts more than about 10 or so posts in a week I’m just going to link to the site, unless something in particular catches my eye that’s very craft related. You may notice that some posts from Sundays have been repeated, this is if there is time-sensitive information included in them, this does sometimes lead to repeated links from the previous week. From this week for the foreseeable future I’m going to do this fortnightly.  It’s consuming too much time that Summer is suggesting I should spend outdoors in our garden!

This is delayed a week because sadly Brendan Kehoe of Zen.org lost his fight with cancer.  His funeral was Saturday 23rd July and I seriously couldn’t face doing the update; over the last few weeks there were a number of tributes to him.

2 Knit or Not 2 Knit shows some handspun and what became of it.

40 plus teenager talks about the prospects for people

All Things Beautiful looks at a pattern and variations

Akka Designs finishes a blanket

An Apology for an Idler makes some fingerless gloves; talks about wearing handknits; makes a scarf; talks about friends; sees the Harry Potter film; talks about No; gets a haircut; engages in some self-indulgence and hopes that things get better

An Evening Wasted With does some bra and yarn shopping; wonders about out of date lemsip; gets meat and books; starts some fitness; does the second day; talks about books and family; is happy Livejournal is back

An Snag Breac Beo shares pink from the garden; reds; Oranges and makes a skirt

Anula’s Kitchen makes some homemade noodles and makes pasta alla genovese

Crafty Blog Update 26th June-9th July

I would like to welcome any new readers, and thank old ones for visiting, we’re not that old and we hope to continue to do this as time allows. If you know of any blogs that should be included please contact us by email or a post on this or the Irish Knitting, Crochet and crafty blogging post. The same goes if you want to be removed.

Please note that neither I or SineadR do this as a full-time job, and allied to that our jobs actually restrict our webtime. We will do our best to get stuff done as soon as possible but that may take a few days or hours. In order to optimise my trawling I have set up a Netvibes Page for the blogs this is not foolproof and I may miss updates but it’s been better than some of the other options.  I have also decided that if a blog posts more than about 10 or so posts in a week I’m just going to link to the site, unless something in particular catches my eye that’s very craft related. You may notice that some posts from Sundays have been repeated, this is if there is time-sensitive information included in them, this does sometimes lead to repeated links from the previous week. From this week for the foreseeable future I’m going to do this fortnightly.  It’s consuming too much time that Summer is suggesting I should spend outdoors in our garden!
