We want everyone in Kilkenny to get knitting and to show us their green!! Get involved, pass some time, learn a new skill or rekindle one lost since childhood and create a green scarf for yourself or someone special in your life. Or you can help raise some vital funds for the wonderful ‘Cois Nore’ cancer support charity, by bidding on a scarf.
With our celebrity chef, broadcaster and All-Ireland ‘Knit and Stitch’ champion Edward Hayden leading the challenge, accompanied by his celebrity knitters and Cois Nore Ambassadors, broadcaster Evanne Ní Chuilinn and All-Ireland Inter-County Hurler and All-Star Jackie Tyrrell, they’ll be vying to get all of Kilkenny knitting while they raise vital funds for local charity Cois Nore. Their own creations will be auctioned off so get your bids in before midnight on March 17th to firstname.lastname@example.org
To make it easy for everyone, Cushendale Woollen Mills are selling ‘Green Mohair Scarf’ knitting packs which include wool, needles, and a pattern so there are no excuses!! Use code “KK-Knit” at checkout for 15% off. Valid from 13 Feb to March 17th. Code can only be used once per user.
So! Either use your own green wool or purchase your kit, and join our community of knitters for the Big Green Kilkenny knit! Whether you’re an old hand or a novice, sit back, relax, and enjoy the process. Then give the gift of green or wear your creation with pride this St. Patrick’s Day!
Cois Nore provides free, confidential support and both professional and voluntary services to people of all ages affected by cancer and their families. Their ultimate goal is to enable all their clients to live well with their diagnosis and life after cancer.
