So on Saturday was the big event at Tricot das Cinco. The whole team of the Portuguese Yarn Club, Rosário (dona maria), Filomena (yarnadventures) and Paula (dyedbyalfinete) were hosted by Sofia, the owner of Tricot das Cinco, and were able to sell their gorgeous yarns directly to the public.
First let me introduce you to this lovely new LYS that opened up earlier this year. It’s located on the Avenida Poeta Mistral no. 7, Lisboa and there’s also a little tea area where you can drink some tea or coffee and there’s usually some biscuits or cakes on offer as well. I somehow forgot to take proper photos of this area, I was attracted to the yarns on offer instead.
Some close-ups from the wall of yarn..
And now the ladies and their wares
We’ll start with Paula and her brand Dyed by Alfinete
Then we had Rosário with her brand Dona Maria
And last but not least Filomena with her brand Yarn Adventures
I want to thank the ladies for all their efforts in creating these lovely yarns, the colours shown here in the photos, though very close to true to life, these skeins are definitely best seen IN REAL LIFE. Also a very big thank you to Sofia for offering to host this event in her shop and giving me an excuse to visit this lovely shop. I can’t say enough nice things about all the ladies, they were all so very welcoming and it was a pleasure to finally meet Paula and Sofia.
So if you’re in Lisboa and looking for some nice yarns, this shop is a must. It’s close to metro stations and within walking distance from Campo Pequeno.
and if these photos weren’t enough, you can check out the complete album here.
