Sara Interviews Winwick Mum

We are very lucky to have so many well-known names from the world of knitting and crochet local to us in Warrington. From time to time you will catch them discreetly shopping in the Craft Barn or meeting up with a fellow designer for a cuppa and slice of cake in our tea shop. Quite recently we spotted Winwick Mum and Lynne Rowe meeting up for a natter.


In this fabulous yarny emporium (our Craft Barn) we have made friendships over the years with these familiar faces. Continuing to keep in touch, enjoying reading their blogs and updates on social media. Also working with them on various projects and inviting them to spend time with us on Let's Knit magazine - Yarn Shop Day and other events in store.

Earlier this year we heard on the grapevine that Winwick Mum was soon to be releasing a yarn collection with West Yorkshire Spinners. Eeeek! Exciting news! She is the blogger everyone turns to when sock knitting, full of advice and encouragement so that you don't give up. Christine already has two Sock Knitting books under her belt. Full to the brim of detailed information, guiding you through your sock knitting journey, from choosing the right needles to casting off your last stitch. She really does take you through every step! If anyone were to be having a sock yarn collection in their name, Winwick Mum would be your first choice.
Say hello to four new additions to the West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply family.......

WYS Signature 4ply

Not only did Christine come up with new shades of Signature 4ply she has also designed patterns for an accompanying sock knitting book.

We invited Christine to the Craft Barn for a spot of filming with Sara. I found it really interesting listening to Christine chat with Sara, learning about how she chose the colours, knitting socks and blogging. A lot of work goes into being a Blogger like Christine, it isn't just something that happens overnight. She is always creating engaging content for her readers, producing free patterns and detailed how to guides along the way. It is lovely to see her dream coming to fruition with the West Yorkshire Spinners collaboration.
We nearly didn't start filming as we all went off on a tangent talking about cleaning products! I'm not entirely sure that chatter would have been well received. We hope you enjoy watching a relaxed, informal interview with Winwick Mum. Stay up to date with all of our latest videos by subscribing to our YouTube channel.
