After a couple of weeks or three of being here, there and yonder I finally made it to The Yarn Room yesterday for a fix of bright yarnie spirits and colourful wool. Much has needed to be discussed for a while and hooks needed exercising among like minds too. As I roared up to the shop with my leaky exhaust just coming out of a heavy shower my heart lifted a mile. The new sign was up over the door and it is complete sunshine in the rain. The delicious colours would draw you in alone and inside it is so bright and happy.
Stephanie has had her sign made by the creative forces of Triskill and they most certainly know how to make mosaics. The new sign in stunning and it drew me in out of the shower like a bear is drawn to a honey pot. I think it even managed to banish the rain!
In my bag of tricks I had The Northern Vessel which now has a new home and was immediately put to good use as a holder of colourful balls of Kilcarra Aran Tweed. It looked right at home there in the shop. It’s quite amazing how firm it is with the rim around it but more about that later.
After the initial roam around and chat I plonked myself in The Yarn CouchTM, grabbed the hook and enjoyed the comings and goings of customers and friends of the house. There was even a visit from one of the yarnies from The Travelling Yarn Sisterhood. I actually get a feeling that she may consider staying the night one time on the The Couch. It was basically like crocheting in a big cosy family room with comings and goings of all sorts… Nice!
Stephanie and I also had a chance to discuss some exciting itmes like the Crochet and Tunisian Crochet Yarn Classes to be in The Yarn Room, but I will post much more about that later with a schedule of events et al!
That Yarn Room really is cosy and it’s even an online shop and it’s full of Irish yarn brands too!
Note: The mosaic sign is done by Triskill and you can check out more of their works here. They do much more than mosaics but I particularly like the mosaic work.
