About Wendylou Woolies

Wendylou Woolies

Unique hand knitted and crafted goods for all the family

I have always loved knitting and started when I was 7 years old and knitted my own rag doll in school, which lasted years. My mum used to knit a lot so that was obviously my inspiration. When I was a little girl most children wore hand knitted cardigans and jumpers. I have always loved this idea that children are wearing something which was specially knitted for them, so I of course knitted for my own 3 children especially when they were small. Being a teacher obviously left little time for knitting as the children got older but I returned to more regular knitting when my daughter asked me to knit for her friend who was having a baby. I was then ill for a while which meant I was off work. I couldn’t concentrate on reading or do anything physical I felt useless and a good friend suggested I started knitting small items such as flowers so if I became fatigued I could stop but items could be knitted in about 30 minutes. So I did and started to make knitted wreaths. This made me feel productive and I feel it certainly helped with my recovery. So I have continued knitting and have attended craft fairs to which I have had a good response. So now as I have retired from teaching I have plenty of time to knit and craft, or so they say!!!!
I love knitting children and baby clothes but unfortunately I have no grandchildren yet to knit for. I have also enjoyed knitting the wreaths for doors and have started doing these for friends and family who were getting married and they were well received, so I have added these to my knits to sell along with nursery wreaths. Sometimes an idea just grabs me or a particular yarn or pattern which I have to knit so I do. Recent visits to a friend in Galashiels were there are lots of mills put me in touch with many different tartans and tweeds and again I was inspired to use this fabric in conjunction with my knitting hence the different cushions. I sometimes feel that perhaps I should find a particular niche and settle on that but then I think there would be so many ideas and patterns I would miss out on, so for now I will continue to knit whatever ideas I come up with and hope others enjoy them too.
