Now the weather is turning cold and wet it’s making me think about warm clothes and the next big event that everyone loves; Christmas! Whether you love it or hate it, you can not deny that the Christmas jumper is one of the most talked about items of clothing every winter.

It is only in recent years that it has made a comeback and has now become a must have item for everyone’s winter wardrobe. All the top high street stores stock them and they fly out fast but what is becoming increasingly popular is hand knitted versions; just like the ones you never wanted to wear that your Granny had knitted for you!

Why not get crafty and try knitting your own this year? We stock lots of Christmas knitting patterns, including jumpers and outfits for both children and adults!
