Knit Night is back!

Hip hip hooray! After a wee summer break, Knit Night starts back today. It's also our third birthday - hooray! I can't believe how quickly three years have run past, and how much fun we've had along the way. Thank you so much for all your amazing support - we couldn't do this thing without you. 


So! Knit Night! Every Thursday, alternating between the two shops. If you can't make it out to Petone, we'll be keeping our Grand Arcade doors open longer every second Thursday for our town peeps to come and relax among the yarn. 



To further celebrate Petone's third birthday, we have a bunch of specials! 30% off all Cascade Sport (non-superwash), Zealana Willow, Echo cotton (all in Petone only) and 20% off all Waikiwi sock (both stores). Also in Petone - a basket of cheap treats! Huzzah! All specials on until Sunday 23 February. 


P.S Our Petone shop is back to normal hours again: 10am - 5pm Wed - Fri, 10am - 4pm Sat, 11am - 3pm Sun.

Happy birthday to us!

 It's our birthday times two!

Saturday marks two years of Holland Road Yarn Company. It's such a joy for us to share the love of great yarn with you. 

This week is also the third birthday of Knitsch Yarns - the little hand dyed sock yarn company I decided to start while sitting in a gorgeous yarn shop in London. It's pretty amazing to think that 3.5 years after that moment, both dreams are now part of my everyday life. 

How are we celebrating?

Well! It's Knit Night tonight and there shall be cake! 


Frozen Peanut Butter Cheesecake, to be precise. 

There will also be a few specials and other treats in store. See you tonight from 7!
