We popped along from 6-9pm with a selection of samples and free patterns, hoping to inspire the late night Christmas shoppers attending this John Lewis event. There were lots of people - attracted no doubt by a mix of suppliers in-store ranging from Decopatch demonstrations to famous chef Raymond Blanc in the cookery department.
We were delighted to be sharing the knitting space with Sue Stratford of "Knitted Meerkats" and "Mini Christmas Knits" fame, and also Natalie the lovely Rowan consultant. We know Sue already so it was great fun catching up with her, and Natalie was knitting a lovely inspiring fair isle pattern from a Rowan magazine from a few years ago. There were lots of customers (Helena said far more than last year when she was there on her own) and we actually ran out of our Christmas stocking pattern before the event was over. Some piccies below!
