I’ve been duped, I thought I was going up ‘norf with a power-suited Hillary Clinton, but alas, I was spending the day with Neat PR’s First Lady, Hilary (with one less ‘l’ than the Democrat!) and her very cool customised Stan Smiths-easy mistake to make Mr Starbucks guy!
Leaving the stunning concourse and hustle and bustle of Kings Cross for the rolling hills of Yorkshire to catch up with the lovely Wool Couture gang-two worlds within hours of each other-armed with our usual bag of food goodies enough to feed us and the rest of the carriage, we were on our way.
The taxi pulled up (and yes, we might have got slightly lost en route, but who cares-we were too busy enjoying the countryside on this beautiful autumnal day) and wow! We had seen pictures, written copy about the new shop and know the products, but our expectations were far surpassed. The second we stepped through the double doors of Wool Couture into an Aladdin’s cave of epic multicoloured yarn, spectacular macrame hangings and gorgeous Christmas decs to send you into mild panic that the festive season isn’t far off – we had both fallen in love.
Time was too short, before we knew it we were packing our balls of giant yarn and over-sized knitting needles up and saying our goodbyes.
But don’t worry, we’ve definitely got the bug! We’ll be back soon for a lesson in how to make that macrame deckchair for the summer, a gorgeously chunky lulu blanket for our homes, and who knows, maybe we’ll get Rob to give us a lesson in wood turning and shaping!
Thank you Wool Couture for a fabulous day-we had a blast!
And, as the sign above the new workshop says: ‘Welcome To Our World Of Wool Imagination!’
