Up & Running

Phew! Thanks to everyone again for all their good wishes on our latest venture 🙂

It was high time we posted some blog pics of the City Centre branch, now that we have been officially open for three days!

There are still a few last minute finishing touches to be added, but we’re very pleased with how it has turned out overall…

Yarn Anyone?

Lots of Hand Dyed Yarn!

Plenty of Great Knitting Books!

Oh yeah, and yarn...

And yarn in a cup, why not?

The opening hours of the Powerscourt Branch are:

Monday to Saturday: 10am to 6pm
(Closed for lunch from 2.15-2.45)

Late Opening Thursdays until 8pm

Please do come along to the Grand Opening Event which will be happening on the afternoon & evening of Friday 3rd of October. We hope to see lots of you there!

    Who can resist a display like this. I’ll definitely call in today – during my lunch break! Love the dotty cup/bowl of yarn – every office desk should have one :-).

  2. Yes, that Manos looks delicious! I hear you have Lamb’s Pride Bulky also. Yay. I’ll be in for some on the 3rd October I hope. Congratulations guys.

  3. Anna

    Congratulations! Can’t wait to see the new shop (although I’m glad the Blackrock branch is still there, because it’s right next to my office).

    Oh, this is brilliant news, though probably not for my bank balance! I love the Blackrock store, but it’s hard for me to get to. Look forward to visiting soon.

  5. Regina

    How exciting! I so rarely get a chance to go out to Blackrock but this is just down the way from me.. oh, the bank balance is looking dodgy already 😀

  6. Dee

    THis is brill news hooray a wool shop back in the city centre. Plan to call in lots and lots – my lunchtime retreat!
    Congratulations and Best of Luck with the shop.

  7. Delighted that things are going so well in Blackrock and even more delighted that this means you’ll be right near me too! Good luck with the grand opening and enjoy!

  8. I’m so delighted to read about your town branch! Town has been bereft of a good knitting supplies shop for too long! Meanwhile, I remain bereft of time to knit (waiting for the baby to grow old enough not to try to eat the needles…), but, well, there’s always stash acquisition to cheer me up 🙂
