Yarn yarn everywhere and you don't know where to start? The new Autumn/Winter ranges are flying into the shop at the moment and it can be hard to decide on where to begin with those all-important winter knitting projects... Introducing the very first This is Knit Yarn Tasting Event! Don't get overwhelmed by the range of colours, textures and fibres on offer - try before you buy! How will it work? We're taking over "The Loft" exhibition space on the top floor of the Powerscourt Centre for one full Thursday evening - the 27th of August from 6pm to 8pm. There we will have over twenty different yarns on tasting - silks, merinos and mohairs, from lace weights to chunky, from far-flung places and closer to home. Bring your knitting needles and crochet hooks so you can tuck in to as many samples as possible on the evening! There will be plenty of finished garments available to try on too - many of them from the brand new Autumn/Winter pattern books. Tea/coffee and wine will be available as refreshment throughout the evening. Yarn Tasting vouchers will be available to purchase in the shop from Thursday the 20th of August but we will also have them "on the door". Each voucher will entitle you to one yarn sample and they are priced as follows: 5 vouchers â‚¬8.75 10 vouchers â‚¬15.00 15 vouchers â‚¬18.75 20 vouchers â‚¬20.00 Vouchers are redeemable for one sample of each yarn per person. If you would like to attend please RSVP to yarntasting thisisknit ie (removing the spaces and square brackets). See you soon for an evening of the best quality yarns and the opportunity to try them all!
