1  U.K. AND IRELAND / IRELAND / Re: ire (Ireland)? on: March 10, 2006 06:57:18 AM
me.....

I mostly knit so have precisely two outlets: the Wool Shop in Bray and Springwools in Walkinstown....though it's probably a good thing that it's an effort for me to get out there, as i spend too much money on wool..

Hey trio, have you tried the Wool Shop in Bray? It's small but the owner is friendly and helpful and can order pretty much anything. I live in Dublin and since I started knitting nine years ago in a pregnancy-induced frenzy, have seen practically all decent wool outlets in Dublin disappear; it's so frustrating. I have noticed that bookshops have started stocking a better range of pattern books in the last year, and there were big turnouts for the Knitting and Stitching Shows last year and the year before, so maybe there's hope..I haven't explored woolshops outside Dublin much; but it might be better there.

As we're talking about Europe, my experience is that the colder the country, the better the chance of finding good woolshops..a little obvious I know Tongue.  I've found knitting Valhalla in Norway (fabulous woolshops and people knitting intricately patterned socks on buses everywhere) and more recently, Lithuania. I was there in November and one of the highlights of lovely, snow-covered Vilnius was the woolshop where I got mohair and cashmere for just over €1 a ball. Paris is also great in terms of selection, though more expensive of course. I tried to find good woolshops in Italy, Spain and Portugal but drew a blank, though that doesn't mean they aren't there..
