Sockalong knit n natter meet up

I really must take a new photo – the sale has finished!

What are you up to next Wednesday morning between 10am and 12pm?  That’s the 19th of July, and if you’re anywhere near Culcheth in Warrington and fancied coming along to Black Sheep Wools Craft Barn for a bit of a knit n natter, it’d be great to see you!

Members of the Winwick Mum Sockalong Facebook groups are getting together to knit, crochet, chat and also to sample Black Sheep’s excellent cake and smoosh lots of yarn.  Black Sheep Wools are now a flagship store for Rowan Yarns complete with a brand new Rowan section, and they’ve recently started stocking lots of exciting new yarns such as Baa Ram Ewe and Scheepjes – not to mention a good selection of sock yarns too!

We have these occasional meet ups and it’s always lovely to see people rather than photos and admire their projects in real life.  You don’t have to be knitting socks, you can bring any project you like and it’s free to come along.  We don’t provide any refreshments so that you can choose to visit the cafe or not – we just take over the workshop room for a couple of hours to meet friends old and new and have a lovely time!

If you’re getting a lift, your driver can either while away a couple of happy hours in the cafe or on the big squishy sofa with a newspaper, or take the short drive into the village of Culcheth where there are shops and more cafes, and a play park too if you have small people with you.

See you there! 🙂

    I would love to attend. It sounds so lovely. But, alas, it's a long, long, long way from Texas in the USA. It sure would be lovely to meet you though 🙂

    Have fun Christine. I've just finished my first ever sock and have cast on for the second of the pair. Very chuffed with myself for keeping the "little grey cells" in trim!
    My aunt and uncle used to live in Culcheth in a house overlooking the green 40 years ago. I have fond memories of that play park after 6 hours in a car travelling north to see them. Oh the freedom of running over the grass to play. These days the yarn, cake and tea would be more of a draw!

      You could have done, but this was on 19 July so I'm afraid you've missed this one. I'll be organising another one later in the year and I'll post it in plenty of time so that you can check you're free 🙂 xx
