The Short Row Knits Book Launch last Saturday was an event full of good will - and how could it not have been when it was so made up of so many great people and an impressive array of simply gorgeous knits? It was a busy day at the shop, but we did manage to squeeze in some extra decor that morning, such as the impromptu bunting above that was on proud display before Carol's arrival for the kick off at 4.30pm. It didn't take long for the shop to fill up then, with visitors from all corners of Ireland, including one extra special little guy who was definitely in contention with Carol for the title of star guest! Carol was on hand for the entire evening, signing books, offering technical advice and taking us on a tour through Short Row Knits and Dovestone Hills with a quick talk and a mini fashion show. Of course one of the best things about any event like this is the chance to fondle and try on the actual garments from the book, and there were many "oohs" and "aaahs" coming from the Mezzanine level, as projects lept up the ranks in people's queues (and in a lot of cases were going to be cast on on the journey home!) We're really delighted you could all come, and that Carol chose to have the launch with us. It was such a fun evening and it was brilliant to see you all! PS: If you couldn't make it in on the day then we do still have limited stock of some signed copies of Short Row Knits available. They can be ordered online or set aside for collection in the shop - just comment below if you'd like one held for you.
