Unwrap A New Skill This Christmas - This is Knit

This week, as the year draws to a close, we've been taking a little walk down memory lane. You can read our full 2018 Year in Review here where we've been reflecting on a year of amazing firsts and expressing our gratitude for the company of so many wonderful people along the way.

We really are so grateful for your support and custom in 2018 - so today, we'd like to share a small thank you with you all. From now until the 6th of January 2019 we are offering 20% off all of the yarns in the Fibre Company range. Not only do the Fibre Company produce some of the most drool-worthy yarns on our shelves (merino, silk and alpaca anyone?) they are also one of the most supportive and community-orientated yarn producers that we have the pleasure of working with.


So, if you've been coveting a sweater in Road to China Light, or if you're already planning a project for the spring in Luma, now is the time to nab that gorgeous yarn! And, if you're still preparing a Christmas wish list, then we have our final roundup of Gift Ideas for you below...


Woollinn Workshops

Concert tickets are a popular gift this time of year, right? Well, we have some Rock Star Tutors visiting Ireland next June, and now's your chance to get the best seats in the house. Woollinn Workshops can now be booked online (and e-tickets are delivered straight away, so they'll make perfect last minute gifts). Check out the full line up over on the Woollinn website.
Some topics are already fully booked, with others having very limited space remaining, so if there's a topic you have your eye on we recommend getting in there quick!

Two Kits From Townhouse Yarns

Our gift-ready kits are always very popular at this time of year. Here are just two from among the full range we have in store...

The Aisling Shawl Kit

This beautifully presented kit is ready to be placed under your tree. It contains two precious skeins of the silk and merino yarn Fade St 4ply from Townhouse Yarns and the stunning Aisling pattern by Justyna Lorkowska. Suitable for intermediate knitters.

The Soul Warmer Cowl

Maybe you're ready to try some new techniques? But you don't want the pressure of a diving in to a full garment while you practice? The kit for this Soul Warmer cowl give you the perfect opportunity to play with new stitch patterns and enjoy the "pick n' mix" pleasure of mini skeins at the same time.

Gift Vouchers

With so many temptations in store, sometimes a voucher is the nicest treat to receive. Gift vouchers are available in-store and online with printable PDFs processed and emailed out during our opening hours.

Just before we sign off, we also wanted to give a shout out to the gift that keeps on giving. A unique Yarn Club that's being curated by Jenny over on the Townhouse Yarns website. If you're a fan of Ru Paul's Drag Race then this could well be the Club for you!
We'll be closing up for Christmas this Sunday at 5pm, and then returning to the shop on the 3rd of January at 10.30am. Wishing you a restful, peaceful break, full of all the things that bring you joy.
Lisa, Jacqui, Jenny and all TIK Team
