Hello there Beastie friends! It’s just a quick post from me today, but I realised that I have the perfect new Beastie to introduce to you. Stick around, it’ll only take a sec! Hey there, Knitter Beastie!
I found Knitter Beastie hanging out among the plants in my studio, on the day I was going to meet one of my long-term knitting students for a goodbye coffee. This student had been a regular at the classes for a while, and we’d worked through some awesome and ambitious projects together. But alas, her time in Dublin was coming to an end, and she was moving home to Germany to continue her studies.
Knitter Beastie’s little pointy ears pricked up when I mentioned that I was going to meet a fellow knitter.
“Reeeeeally? I’ve always wanted to see Germany… And I could probably use a bit of help with this project, too.”
And with that, it was decided. Knitter Beastie hopped into my bag, and pretty much insisted on leaving the country with my student. I hope they’re getting on well… And that Knitter Beastie hasn’t been raiding all the local yarn shops in the hope of whipping up a few woolly monster friends!
By the way, if you’re in Dublin (either all the time, or passing through), why not join us for class? Full details and a contact form can be found in the Knitting Classes section of the site, here. And I promise there won’t be too many Beasties around to distract you as you work away on your first project… Probably. 😉
So that’s it for this week… Short and sweet! Next week sees the return of Paddy and Plunkett, who are STILL on holiday. Lucky little monsters, eh? Join us on Tuesday to see what they’re up to now!

A Beastie knitting. Oh stop it! Just when I thought things could not get any cuter! Knitter Beastie! Awwww! Thanks for the smile 🙂
Always a pleasure, Tierney! 😊 And besides, Beasties can’t resist giving human pastimes a go when they get the chance 😁
Cheers for popping in!
If I’m ever in Dublin I’ll pop by for a lesson – Cute beastie there and are Paddy and Plunkett ever NOT on holiday?
I know! Sickening, isn’t it? 😜 I’m still waiting for the day they invite me along!
Happy to get you knitting if you’re ever in the neighbourhood, too… In the meantime, thanks for hanging out on the BeastieBlog!
These are adorable creations of yours! What a brilliant idea! ♥
Hello! And thank you… I have a lot of fun creating them 😸 Cheers for dropping in!
I am sure that Knitter Beastie is enjoying the new surrounds in Germany, and will continue to inspire your student to keep good things going on the needles. What a fine international ambassador of knitting, KB is! 😄 Glad to hear that the classes are going well!
Thanks, Shirley! I certainly hope so… And you might be on to something with that international ambassador thing. Beastie embassies around the world by 2025! 😂
How lovely of you!
We flew into Dublin Airport this summer but unfortunately didn’t get a chance to really spent time there. I would have loved to stop by and meet a beastie!
You could have met several! I can’t guarantee that a few of them wouldn’t have tried to stow away in your suitcase though 😆 Next time you’ll hopefully get a chance to come into the city!
I love your beasties!
Hi Jackie! And thank you so much… Cheers for popping in to visit us, too! 😊
