Something rather wonderful and somewhat unexpected is happening here at Made By Ewe.
I seem to be in the throes of opening my very own wool shop! It wasn’t planned, it wasn’t looked for, it has just kind of happened.
One day about a month ago, I went for a bike ride to a local craft centre, to meet Hubby for tea. I got there early, and noticed a sign in the window advertising a craft unit available to let. It’s the one on the end.
With time to kill I made a casual enquiry, and it kind of snowballed from there. I’m signed up for the unit and, as of mid April, I will be in situ, surrounded by yarn, knitting patterns, needles, kits and as much woolly goodness as I can cram into my 18′ by 12′ space. It’s going to take some work!
Every knitter dreams of having their own wool shop, I think. Last year I worked in a wool shop for a while part – time and played around with the idea of doing something myself. But it didn’t happen – the time wasn’t right, but that experience is certainly turning out to be useful now!
I still can’t quite believe it is happening. Writing about it on the blog makes it a little bit more real though. I will keep you all posted on progress.
