Party Time

October 07 2008 – thisisknit

We had an absolute ball at the Grand Opening last Friday. Thanks so much to all who came - you really made the night for us and we thoroughly enjoyed partying with you all! As with many things the evening is best described (mostly) in pictures so here is just a brief selection (more available on Lunasa's blog here...): Mini Hat Knitting Helen & Roberta were sorting out some mini hat knitting in aid of the Big Knit... More Knitting And from Left to Right there's Ger, Susan & Helen. Ger has been christened the "Mini Hat Mistress" with her incredible (and daily growing) total of 80+ mini smoothie hats! Knit In Hats Many people brought along their already completed hats, and the totals grew over the evening. The hats may have got more wacky though... possibly something to do with the wine... Shopping There was some shopping... More Shopping And possibly a little bit more shopping... Chatting There was chatting... Friends We had new friends... (Hi Elena & Kalen!) Old Friend And plenty of old friends come to visit... (Hi Anna!) Jenny & Us And of course there was the very lovely Jenny Watson who signed her very first book here with us at TIK! We're very proud to have that honour as, mark our words, this lady is going places. We also love that the first book was owned by Helen McC who was our very first customer back in TIK Blackrock. Coincidence...? Me thinks not... Dancing And then, of course, there was the dancing... At this point, in the interest of full disclosure, I will confess that I was in fact involved in the dancing but that picture is not getting published... And, yes, I am shamelessly abusing my blog-author priveledges here! Thanks again to everyone who came along - we're already looking forward to the 1st birthday party celebrations :)
