My favourite thing to knit … Heather the shop manager

Woolyknit shop manager Heather, is a dab hand at all things crafty.

Heather started knitting at just 17 years old! She finds herself always knitting or producing something crafty at home, whilst watching the TV. At 18 years old, she moved to Scotland and pursued her love of crafts and fabric and opened a fabric shop in Motherwell. This shop was open for 30 years.

After this, she moved to set up a factory in Oldham which produced ski-hats and beanies. Heather began working at Woolyknit for a couple of mornings a week. With an employee change at the company, Heather landed the shop manager role.


She said, “Knitting is a passion and as natural as breathing, it’s very therapeutic and seeing the progress at the end of a week is really satisfying.”

Some of Heather’s favourite knits are great big blankets consisting of smaller squares, individually they can take up to an hour each to knit! They are all pieced together and the end results are more than worth the effort.

Heather very much enjoys knitting for herself, her family and her friends. She loves making big baggy jumpers, baby clothes and blankets for her grandson. She is particularly fond of using her favourite shades of black and grey.


Come along to the shop and meet Heather! We would all love to know about your favourite knits!
