the Rathmines swap…

Last Tuesday, the Rathmines knitting group organised a yarn swap and brought in their unwanted yarnstash…

Some of the yarns had a history, such as resurfacing after a year or two from a previous swap; or recycled yarn from a cardigan bought at a charity shop.

I am not sure whether I was destashing, but It certainly looks like a stash enhancement…

A Twitter quote from teaandcakes, sums it up nicely, “Dublin Knitters have a communal stash, we just all mind different bits at a time…”

this is how rumours get started…

I was walking along Rathmines Road this morning and passed by the old Lifeboat Charity Shop which has been empty and unoccupied for some time now. I thought I was seeing a mirage…

I took a closer look…

and yes it is definitely yarn! I spotted Hazbo at the bus stop and showed her what I saw in the shop window. She was able to confirm that IT is YARN which must have appeared overnight since it was not there yesterday.

Upon closer inspection, I noticed that this yarn is organic and Fairtrade…

So please confirm our suspicions…is there going to be a new yarn shop in Rathmines????
