As per the This is Knit blog post Kildare Outlet Village are holding an event celebrating "The Simple Pleasure of Home". Sounds like a pleasant excursion with free knitting lessons from the folks at This is Knit and free cooking demonstrations.
It's worth a look.
See, knitting isn't just something a few people do at home! :D
Happy times to ya folks!

I'm starting to see why so many craft bloggers involve their cats in their posts.
Seeing that mine 'help' me type by walking across the keyboard, swatting their paws at the cursor as it flys across the screen and check out the sturdiness of my monitor by pacing across it - it pretty much is a case of if ya can't snap 'em out of it - snap them while they're doing it!

My art supplies
(And no, I don't usually leave my knitting in progress on the floor)
My art supplies have now been moved out of a corner of my office and now take pride of place at the top of the landing. I figure the more often I see my art supplies, the more inclined I'll be to use them. It's worked well thus far. IToday, spent time having fun with my oil pastels and charcoal for the first time in simply ages. I doubt it'll lead to anything but a colourful daub, but it's a start.

I'm not sure she'll be all that impressed if I bring her along...... but she is due to have a sleepover on Friday night AND I can bring her for dinner before I head off to Nenagh.
The Abbott's Bar @ The Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary
Abbey Court Hotel grounds
The Abbey Court is on the N7 Dublin to Limerick Road. Here is a link to maps on the Abbey Court's web page.
The Abbott's is a cosy venue and I plan for us to be seated next to the fire in the area furthest from the food service area. There are two ways of getting to the Abbott's. You can enter the main hotel reception and ask the desk staff for directions or you can enter through the Abbott's front door which is viewable from the road. Either way, you'll know us as we'll be the ones with the needles and yarn.
This is an open group and we'll welcome anyone with a craft interest of any ability level.
So come all ye knitter's, crocheter's, embroider's, quilter's, felter's, cross stitcher's.
The more the merrier. :)
It should go without saying, but I'll mention it anyway, that gender, age, family status and all that jazz are irrelevant. Just bring your good selves, your current work in progress (if you have one) and join in.
Feel free to e-mail me on craftyrainbowhead @ gmail . com if you have any queries.
Any fellow Ravelers out there can find me on Ravelry here.
Happy times and happy crafting to you folks.
