Cumulus Arrives at This Is Knit

This is Knit, located in Dublin, Ireland, have been Scrumptious and Vivacious stockists for some time and recently added Cumulus to their line up of Fyberspates yarns. We thought it was time for a little celebration of this wonderful shop as well as a giveaway (more on that in a moment).

Fyberspates in stock at This Is Knit

This is Knit started life back in 2006 as a small market stall and website, run by mother and daughter team Jacqui and Lisa Sisk. Their aim was to supply natural fibre yarns in a broad range of colours to knitters and crocheters and to offer friendly advice and a range of classes and workshops. The business grew each year through a lot of hard work and re-investment, and in 2009 Jacqui and Lisa moved from the south Dublin suburb of Blackrock to the City Centre. In 2011 they took over an even larger shop unit in the beautiful surroundings of the Powerscourt Centre and Lisa's sister Jenny also joined the team shortly afterwards.

The classes on offer in store vary from Beginner Knitting and Crochet to Professional Finishing classes, and we also regularly host guest designer workshops from names like Ysolda Teague, Carol Feller and Woolly Wormhead. All classes can be booked online here.

The Ashton Shawlette by Dee O'Keefe

Jacqui and Lisa are true Fyberspates fans too as they regular blog and share the projects they've worked up in Fyberspates yarns. There was a little gasp at Fyberspates HQ when we spotted the Ashton Shawlette worked up in Scrumptious 4ply and Jacqui's gorgeous Laar in Scrumptious Lace. Absolutely stunning! You can find details of the shawl in this blog post from their lovely blog and more project notes on Laar here
