Nearly there!

Here in the Powerscourt Centre, it’s a lovely Christmassy day. There’s live music from Lyric Opera, there’s a happy buzz from the Pepper Pot tables outside the door (the mince pies probably have a lot to do with it), and there’s little hand-crafted decorations all over the place.

When it comes to yarny gifts, we’ve got loads we’d like to show you – kits and notions and buttons and books galore. We’re also delighted to see an awful lot of non-crocheters and non-knitters, and helping them pick the perfect gift is so much fun.

If you’re looking for a very special gift for yourself or a very lucky person, there’s still a couple of days left to sign up for Irish Yarn Club 2014 – world-exclusive hand-dyed yarn from independent Irish dyers, paired with exciting new patterns from Carol Feller. You can sign up until Sunday, online, over the phone, or in person.

If you’re passing over the weekend, do drop in and say hello!
