Oíche Shamhna

It's Halloween/Samhain in Ireland. A tradition that has been celebrated here for over 2000 years. Gone are the days of mothers staying up all night sewing costumes and making masks, for the children, (it's a trip to Lidl to buy sweets and costumes, and off to the Knit and Stitch Show instead...)

But it is still a day of all things gouls and ghosts, so what better way to celebrate with something yarnie, than by showing you an instillation by Ben Cuevas.
