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.

An ode to grey.

Going through all our sales for the year is an interesting task. I'm plotting and planning for next year's purchases and it's curious to see, time and again, the most popular colourway in every one of the ranges we hold.

It's grey. 

We have a shop filled with colour and yet we sell more grey than anything else. Surprise! I suppose if all the colours were added together it would far, far outweigh the amount of grey we sell.  If I had my way the top seller would be yellow. I'm curious - do you have a favourite colour to knit with? Do you naturally tend towards grey because it's easy to wear?
