Great introduction to arm knitting! Sophie’s video instructions were clear and easy to follow, beautiful selection of coloured yarns too! I would definitely recommend Sophie’s kit if you want to give arm knitting a try

What a great course! Sophie is very reassuring - I can't knit and was concerned that I would find this too difficult online. It turns out that with clear instructions I can knit and have managed to make a beautiful blanket- I love it so much I want to make another!
Thank you Sophie, prompt communication, clear instructions and a beautiful cosy blanket at the end, I thoroughly recommend this course.

2020 Crochet Advent Calendar (Course inactive)

Craft kit
Pauline - - #31914

I’ve actually stopped opening my calendar after getting a tea bag in an envelope. As the calendar cost £75 I was expecting something way better. Very disappointed.

Response from A boat full of wool:

I’m soo sorry you are disappointed with your calendar. The calendar is made by two small businesses souly by hand. A lot of time was spent producing the whole calendar from start to finish and everything was made by just two people. It’s not mass produced and made by hand. The calendar was listed and described accurately.
The theme was a Scandinavian Christmas and the envelopes are in fitting with the theme of this.
I’m soo sorry for your disappointment, I’m more than happy to discus this further and resolved if you get in touch :)

Beginners Large Chunky Wreath Kit

Craft kit
Jenny Fitzgerald - - #31748

The kit arrived in good time and was beautifully packaged, and all the components were lovely. The videos provided were very clear and not too quick, so I got the hang of it very quickly! And the resulting wreath looks lovely!

Such a great course - I definitely recommend! Sophie's instructions were so easy to follow and I'm so happy with the blanket I made! I was a bit hesitant at first as I've never tried my hand at arm knitting and wasn't sure how easy it would be to pick up "online" but Sophie's videos were so intuitive & easy to grasp!

Response from A boat full of wool:

Thank you for your lovely review Maria!

Thanks

Beginners Chunky Christmas Wreath Workshop - Newbury (Course inactive)

In-person course
Sammy Maggs - - #27308

What a great night on board a beautiful canal boat learning how to make a fantastic festive wreath! Sophie explained the process and then allowed us to crack on with our own designs, offering guidance where needed. I would definitely do another of her workshops!

Response from A boat full of wool:

Thank you Sammy much appreciated! It was great to have you onboard!

What an amazing time... a warm September evening spent with the wonderful Sophie on her boat. We’d booked a private workshop to learn how to arm knit a chunky throw. Sophie is incredibly patient and none of us could believe we’d arm knitted our gorgeous throws in just under 2 hours! We’ve learnt a skill for life (just ordered yarn to make another!). Thank you Sophie... we had the best time ever.

I had a lovely afternoon in a super location, which made it feel very special as the course was a present.
Sophie helped everyone, from beginners to others who were more experienced.
I hope to come back for another course in the future.

Great workshop in a really lovely and unusual location! The group was small, which was perfect as it meant everyone was able to go at their own pace and Sophie, the tutor, was able to spend lots of time with everyone individually, to make sure they knew what they were doing. Really enjoyable, would definitely recommend.

I attended this course with a friend last week. It was a very relaxing evening in a beautiful setting. We had a lovely evening chatting and knitting, and under Sophie's guidance we both left with a wonderful completed throw. Highly recommended! I'd never done any knitting before and had no problems :)
