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!

Are you the UK’s fastest knitter?

I’m probably not even Fenton’s fastest knitter, so I definitely won’t be taking part in this competition, though I might secretly record my PB just to see how I measure up to the champion knitters. But what I may lack in speed I definitely make up in enthusiasm!

To try your hand(s) at being the fastest, follow this link for all the details of the UK Hand Knitting Association‘s competition. Or you can visit one of a number of fabulous stitchy events coming up around the country to take part.
