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.

Sale! And a birthday celebration

Sale stuff! Hooray! I fancy a bit of a clear out and so you get some pretty super deals if I do say so myself. 

There's 20% off all Addi needles, Zealana Willow, Cascade Sport (non superwash), Twilley's Echo Cotton (in-store only) and a bunch of other stuff. Oh, and Blonde Chicken Yarn is down from $24 a skein to $14.40. 



All are absolutely beautiful products, but we need to make space for summer stock and some new treats that the second store will allow us to introduce to our ranges.


In other news, it's my birthday this weekend! Eeep! And yeah, it's a milestone. Numbers don't bother me, but I find it interesting to reflect on my twenties. Who would have guessed that taking up knitting as a rebellion against crocheting colleagues when I was 23 could lead to opening a yarn store? Not me!

Anyway, to celebrate, tonight is the last Knit Night of the year, so there is a fancy-pants raspberry chocolate cake, Six Barrel Soda Co sodas, and bubbles. Plus a whole lot of knitting and giving thanks for surviving another year. Couldn't come at a better time, really, considering it is, actually, thanksgiving in the States today. 

Happy thanksgiving! Hopefully see you at the shop tonight from 7 - 9pm!

Ashford Sale! 15% off all Ashford hardware

Happy November! While i'm in an eternal state of wondering where the year has gone, i'm also rather looking forward to Christmas this year. It's the best time to catch a break, relax and get crafty. 


December and Christmas is a time for being with good people, having time away from the busy-ness of work and reflecting on the best things in life. And usually time for treats. If you're hankering after new toys this Christmas, you're in luck!


From today until 21 November we've got 15% off ALL Ashford hardware. The discount has already been applied to all eligible products so you don't need to worry about discount codes. 



The best part? We'll order in anything at all for you if it isn't already in-stock or online. Have a nosey and daydream through the Ashford product range and give us a yell if you need prices or advice. I rather fancy the idea of treating myself to a 50cm Knitter's Loom. Perfect way to churn through the stash and make some super gift-able scarves.


The sale applies to Ashford hardware only - looms, spinning wheels, drum carders, swifts, wool winders and accessories. Yarn and sliver are excluded. And there's free shipping on all NZ orders over $50! Hooray!


P.S If this post seems to be lacking a little joie de vivre, it's because I had to write it twice. You missed out on the first round of over-excitement. Boo!
