If you're looking for a good reason for getting a bit misty-eyed and nostalgic, may we recommend having a fifth anniversary? Now that we're building up to the celebrations on June 30th, we've been looking fondly back. As far back today as our very first blog post, when we talked about Helen McC who'd just knitted a pair of stunning and ingeniously symmetrical socks. You see, when This Is Knit opened for the very first time in Blackrock Market, Helen was our very first customer. We're very happy to say that she's still delighting us with her knitting. Here's a very recent example, Lisa's Winterberry Shrug, which she made in Debbie Bliss Andes (it's too soft and snuggly for words). Symmetry in January 2007, symmetry now. Thanks, Helen. We've been awfully lucky over the years to have met some terrific people. The best thing is how many of them are still around. Over the next couple of weeks we'll be celebrating more of them here, from the earliest to the latest. And on Thursday June 30th, we get to celebrate with them too. Our Fifth Birthday Party is coming up, and we can't wait. If you'd like to come along too, you can book by clicking on the link below. There is a strong possibility of cake.
