Too soon for Christmas knitting?

If, like me, you’re still frantically trying to finish off your summer knitting projects (I currently have two cotton summer jumpers waiting to be sewn up and a third still on the needles!) then the answer is probably yes, it is too soon to be thinking about Christmas jumpers.

The really good news is, though, that we can definitely look forward to another crafty run up to the festive season on TV courtesy of Kirstie Allsopp and friends.

So come on everyone, give this Christmas jumper designing thing your very best shot this year!

Yarn Shop Day

Tomorrow is Yarn Shop Day, the day when knitters everywhere celebrate their favourite local wool shop. The ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group will be visiting The Wool Loft in Gainsborough. Small, but beautifully formed and absolutely jam packed with gorgeous yarns of every colour and type, The Wool Loft is a true hidden treasure and Liz is a fount of all yarny knowledge. Why not join us?

The Lincoln Imp came along, too!
