Bath wasn’t exactly the friendliest city for a budding knitter before, but now it’s a whole different ball game. Turns out heaven is wool shaped and can be found round the back of Marks and Spencer. This shop has the most incredible selection of wools and they have the coolest knitting needles ever in the history of knitting needles. Friends, they’re tie-dyed. That’s right, tie-dyed.
But the best thing? The best thing is the beautiful colours the owner Laura has selected. I’ve been working on my plan for my future little business and one of the main things I’ve been thinking about are the colours I want to be using. I have a definite palette in mind and I may even have a little notebook with collages of shades and colour combos I like. If you didn’t know already, I’m a bit of a geek like that. And yep the business has a name and my sister’s even designing a logo of sorts for me, but it’s all still under wraps for now.
Last night, excited by these three new lovely bundles and the perfect timing of this store’s arrival (it’s like it was put here especially for me!!) I spent a while (aka all evening) scouring the web for inspiration. Now I need to stop spending so much time looking at other people’s amazing knitting and get started myself.
ps. the store even has it's own knitting class on a Wednesday night. It starts November 3rd and I think I might head along. I am a bit scared that the other knitters may be masters of the trade...surely the prospect of a new knitting buddy is worth it though, right?
