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!
As we had hoped, it was a riot of crafty inspiration and left us full of ideas for hours and hours worth of makes.
The beautiful tweedy and flannel patchworks will send us searching through our fabric stash. I’m already eyeing up Mr handmadebysoo’s Harris Tweed hacking jacket and wondering how many patches it would make!
With thanks to Richard for his recommendation of Home Sweet Home, we enjoyed an inevitable (though very large!) slice of cake before setting off back to Lincoln.
handmadebysoo will be attending the Handmade Christmas Fair in Manchester in November. We are also going to be treated again to some Handmade Christmas TV. So what better time to think about taking part in one of Kirsty’s Christmas competitions?
As a lifelong crafter and huge fan of La Allsopp, handmadebysoohas been given an exclusive preview of the Handmade Fair 2015. Here are the details:
The Handmade Fair is back! Following on from an incredible first show at Hampton Court Palace in 2014, Kirstie Allsopp will be returning this September once again to run the country’s most exciting craft event.
This isn’t your average craft market – it’s a long weekend of hands-on workshops, entertaining interviews, ‘make and takes’, and all the shopping and fabulous food you can manage! Plus Kirstie will be there every day to host some of the sessions and, of course, craft!
