Sunday Stitches #sundaystitches this week. Knitting a jumper from @westyorkshirespinners ColourLab “Purple Rain” aboard the narrow boat Emma Maye” on the Leeds and Liverpool canal near #Burscough

We have just had published our 1st boat review.

NB Breeze along the length of the boat.
Nice grey and pink paint work showing off the lines of the narrow boat Breeze in the marina at Ripon. The small flue on this side of the television aerial is the flue for the incinerator toilet. The boat was built by Narrowboats of Distinction on an Alexander hull and shell. The date is 23.8.2021 Image Cw 7728 copyright Colin Wareing of Colin and Carole’s Creations

We went to see the boat in the marina in Ripon a few weeks ago and found it all a interesting job.

The full review is published in the October edition of the canal newspaper Towpath Talk, which can be found free in chandlers and some canal side pubs, or it can be read on line here.

Hopefully the boat builder and the owners think we did a fair job and hopefully we’ll be asked to do another one soon.

This is where we’ll try and keep you up to date with what’s going on in our world, page updated 18.8.2021

Yesterday we sold some “Northern Lights” yarn to a lady who lives in California who was originally from Wigan 🙂. Wonder where our yarn will end up today from being open outside The Farmers Arms?

For #finishedoffFriday I’ve knitted this project this week in shades of blue. But I’m not quite sure what to call it? A stole, a wrap? Any ideas appreciated. It’s knitted in seeded rib and being from a wool and acrylic yarn is quite warm so would make a great addition to the wardrobe of someone who is now working from home in the “new normal”.  Knitted from JC Bretts “Landscape” yarn, Carole on the canal.

Carole’s Hand knitted poppies in the boat window, In remembrance of the fallen and in appreciation of today’s key workers my hand knitted poppies and rainbow scarf hung in the window of our narrow boat. 8.11.2020

We are available until Thursday this week, up to the 1st of October for anything you may require. After that we are have a few days break before we start the run into Christmas.

Latest Dragon tooth shawl is taking shape on Carole’s needles. Once it is finished it will be available to buy from The Wool Boat for £15 and through our website for £20 including delivery to a UK address. If you would like to pre order it please get in touch. Thanks Carole
Today’s work in progress picture, a Blue dragon tooth shawl being knitted by hand by Carole Wareing aboard the narrow boat “Emma Maye”. This will become an adult sized shawl which is being knitted from J C Bretts “Northern Lights” yarn, this being shade no NL 6. Carole doesn’t use a written down or published pattern for her Dragon tooth shawls, so each garment is unique.
