    Have been a (ir)regular customer of Wooly Minded in Clayton Street since it opened, usually drawn in by the knitted items modelled in the shop window (knitted for display purposes only by staff members)- a GREAT idea, especially as they look so modern that they attract younger knitters too.

    Being – as I thought – an experienced knitter, (having learned when I was about 7 years of age and progressed over the years), I never thought to check the instructions on a Peter Pan pattern I recently purchased, for a Loopy Jacket and Bonnet. I was soon stumped though, realising that my technique was obviously lacking, and the pattern wasn’t turning out as I’d expected. However, a return visit to the store was welcomed by the owner, who proceeded to show me EXACTLY how to knit the stitch in question, and now I’m well on the way to finishing the jacket, for the new baby girl of one of my daughter’s friends.

    I can’t return to thank Susan in person, as I’ve recently dislocated my hip and have to use crutches for several weeks, but I hope that she’ll read this comment! Her staff are so approachable, always willing to help with ideas and suggestions, and I know I’ll be a customer of theirs for a long time to come!
