The event was held at the Save the Children shop in Primrose Hill, which is gorgeous and I would like to move into *laughs*
The event was hosted by Debbie Bliss, with her special guest Trisha Malcolm, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Knitting. Debbie had designed some patterns for the event, which are so cute...
There's a third mini jumper, but I'm saving that one until I can show you the one I made ;) I only managed to knit the front at the event, as I was so busy chatting *laughs*
I had a really lovely time, meeting bloggers and some lovely ladies from Save the Children who were telling us about the work they do at home and abroad.
One of the bloggers I met was Susan, from Damn, Knit and Blast It... I was a bit of dork when I went over to say hi, as Susan's was actually the very first knitting blog I ever read *laughs* I think I managed to chat to everyone, at least briefly, and walked back to the tube station with Susan and Gemma, from the Knitting Fraggle. We also discovered that all 3 of us have boyfriends/husbands with the same first name, which was quite amusing.
I had a great time chatting to Debbie Bliss, especially when I realised I was wearing a jumper made from her Fez yarn. We bonded over our mutual sadness that both Fez and Alpaca Silk had been discontinued by the manufacturer *laughs*
And I did do some knitting in amongst the chatting, snacking and drinking, see... ;)
I'll post a bit more about Christmas Jumper Day tomorrow, as it was the whole reason for the fab night, but in the meantime, check out the other lovely ladies' blogs too...
