Yarn Shop Day / Anniversary Wrap Up May 11 2017

Just a quick one today to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who joined us last Saturday for Yarn Shop Day and our 3 year anniversary party! It was amazing to see everyone and chat about yarn, patterns and of course the super yummy cake provided by Didicakes!

What's really lovely about having an event like Yarn Shop Day is we get to see so many of you all in one place and all at the same time. It just really warms my hear to see so many passionate knitters and crocheters all in the shop at the same time. Peaches was here for the celebrations as well and did her part playing hostess :)

 I didn't take any photos during the day it turns out, too busy chatting and eating cake. There were a few beautiful snaps by customers of the shop and their purchases on Instagram so I'll share those here. Our good friend Allison from Yarn in the City snapped this gorgeous collage below - I love when the shop looks this tidy (and believe me it did not by the end of the day...)

The lovely Dani of the Little Bobbins podcast came out with Bobbin himself. So both Peaches and Little Bobbin were in the shop at the same time eyeing each other up - it was adorable and yet we took no pictures. Dani took this great photo when she got home. If I'm not mistaken the SweetGeorgia Yarns skein is going to be included in her So Faded sweater she's working on. She had the sweater with her and it's going to be so cute when it's finished. 

And last but not least I love this flat lay that Alli took of her goodies from the day. She snatched up a couple skeins of Walcot Yarns, a box of the new Letterpress Cards and a copy of Cocoknits fab new book Sweater Workshop

Again a heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined us last Saturday and a thank you to Let's Knit magazine who organizes Yarn Shop Day. It's so great to see so many people supporting local yarn shops. There are a lot more images from all over the country on Instagram if you check out #yarnshopday and #yarnshopday2017

Until next time, happy making everyone.
