woolfish deliveries

We got a few deliveries of wonderful wool through the week, one of the boxes from Designer Yarns had this little drawing on it, we thought it was a nice touch. The people from Designer Yarns couldn't have been more helpful, they are the company we get our Debbie Bliss, Louisa Harding, Noro Yarns from.

Sock Yarn

Yesterday came into Woolfish and showed me her 'sock',I do think it is very impressive. She is now working on the second one, in between working on her wonderful patchwork,

Also a lady-who is staying with a friend of hers from Holy Island- came in today wearing a jumper she had knitted from sock yarn she had bought from me last year, it looks great, she has bought some more so we are looking forward to next year when she bring the next jumper in---watch this space!

A lovely Jack Russel came into the shop today after he had walked around St Abbs Head so Trudi picked up a Donegal Throw and held Charlie.

Trudi then took a few photos of the shop and stuff and then I had someone in looking at the slippers and downloaded a photo of them by mistake.

Windy, Wild and Wet

Please click on photo to enlarge.

Whatever the weather St Abbs is always impressive

Last Easter we had such lovely weather but this year we have had every kind of weather imaginable.

But wild weather is also fantastic, I took these photos yesterday.

Woolfish is back

At Last I have found my camera, and I have been V busy, I have got lots of new yarn or should I say wool. I have to live up to the name of the shop Woolfish.

I was at a trade show recently and someone was trying to sell me all this 'acrylic' yarn,I told him no that I didn't want 100%acrylic, he kept on trying to persuade me, in the end I told him that the name of my shop was Woolfish not Acrylicfish or Yarnfish but on saying that I did buy a little acrylic, I must learn to say NO NO NO. There is soooooooo much fabulous yarns around and I think I have bought too much.

We also went a little mad with the throws from Selkirk.

When I say WE, I now have help, a wonderful 21year old girl called Trudi, actually I am a bit biased. Trudi is my daughter and I am delighted that she is going to be working with me.

I am posting a couple of pictures of mohair throws for S just to let her see the colours, I love the mohair and they are £95 each.

It is great being back in the shop after being in the cafe over the winter, I tell you that was hard work and yet I think I will do it next year and because Trudi will be with me full time I think we should have the two running together.

Now that I back in circulation, I am going to try and keep regular blogs, so watch this space
