After a little searching around on my iPad, I found the cutest yarn shop in Dublin. Its called 'This is Knit' and it's right downtown, so Mom, Jackie and I hopped into a cab (which was an interesting thing in itself since our cabbie was quite the entertainer!) and did a little shopping.
They had a great selection of yarns, needles, books and even buttons, and the ladies were so friendly. Here are the yarns I purchased, they're all either made here or dyed here:
Left to right: Studio Donegal Soft Donegal, LHogan Sock Yarn and Coolree fingering weight 50/50 merino/silk blend. I also got some Rico yarn for my sister, but since she reads the blog, I don't want to show the colours and ruin the surprise. The Soft Donegal is being knit into the Shipyard Mittens by Carrie Bostick Hodge, everything else doesn't have a plan yet. They're lovely little treats though!
If you ever find yourself in Dublin, definitely stop by This is Knit and have a look around!
Be back soon,
