Social Classes

We hold social classes on Monday and Tuesday nights from 7-9pm.  These classes run throughout the year on a drop in basis except over the summer months of July and August.  Bring your knitting or crochet project and relax with good conversation and a cuppa.  The evening costs £5 including refreshments and all Woolies receive 10% off any purchases made in the shop during the session.



Garment Finishing Workshop

Have you ever spent time knitting an item which is then spoilt by untidy sewing up? Or maybe the item is never used because the sewing up or finishing off looks too complicated? This is the class for you!

We will look at blocking knitted (or crocheted) pieces and different ways of joining pieces together. We will also look at picking up stitches for neck and button bands. Depending on timing, we may also consider ways of avoiding sewing up altogether and different types of casting on.

If you have a finished item which you want to work on, please bring it along. If you don’t, you could knit a small garment (we’ll provide a pattern for you in advance) – which gives an opportunity to practise many of the techniques from the workshop.

DATE: Saturday 17th November 1.15pm – 4.15pm

COST: £25 – includes tea, coffee and biscuits.

PLACES AVAILABLE: 7 – email valerie@lovewool.co.uk to reserve your place


Improvers Knitting Class

Maybe you have seen items you would love to create, but your skills are a bit rusty? Or perhaps you want some of the serenity that knitting is supposed to bring – but it just brings you out in a sweat! In this informal group, we will knit squares combining simple stitches to create more complex patterns. Smaller squares can be joined together to make a cushion or blanket. Or larger squares in cotton yarn make lovely facecloths – great as a little gift with a nice bar of soap.

The class runs over 2 weeks as follows:

Saturday 24th November 1-3pm
Saturday 1st December 1-3pm

COST: £30
– 2 X 100g balls Special DK
– pair of 4mm needles
