Hi, my name is Cath I’ve been knitting since I was about 6 years old taught by my Mum, Betty. It has always been a hobby and I love it, I find it very therapeutic. Having found myself housebound due to illness and disability, the boredom was just too much. My husband brought a Knitting Magazine home for me and that was it my hobby was back with gusto!
Shortly after we found a local knitting group – what a pleasure it was to be out of the house meeting new people who are now really good friends! Pam and I hit it off straight away and I owe her a lot she picks me up weekly and transports me everywhere, a true friend.
This was 2007 and I had dreamt for a long time of having a wool shop, often discussing with my sister Marie my ambitions for a small business. In 2012 circumstances changed and I thought “it’s now or never”, I enrolled on a two day business course with the local Council and realised I did have what it takes and so Handknitted with love x came to be.
I have recently located to Unit 1 Castle Park Arts Centre Frodsham, Cheshire. I supply wool, needles, patterns, accessories, some haberdashery, hand knitted baby garments, knitted toys, tea cosies my own design lace booties, baby footee bootees and more.
I offer knitting and crochet lessons at £12.00 per one hour session or £16.00 when providing the wool and needles to get you started.
I hold regular beginners workshops too.
Knit and Knatter Tuesdays are becoming ever more popular with some of my lovely customers and we meet every Tuesday at Gallery 2 Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham 10.00am – 12.00 to knit and knatter, drink, eat and we can be very merry!
So with the help and support of my family and friends who are still knitting frantically for me Handknitted with love is six years old and growing daily.
Happy Knitting Cath x
