Customer projects from Harrrogate

At the end of November we went to Harrogate and had a fabulous time as always. We really enjoyed our new stand in the Textile Gallery and hope to be there again next year.

What was absolutely amazing this year was that we had so many of you come to show us your favourite finished garments. It is always such a pleasure to see what you have made since the last time we where in Harrogate and how you chose to style it!

Here is the Harrogate round up!

First up is Sue with her first of three garments! We were looking forward to seeing Sue every morning as she came past our stand with a new outfit. First garment is her Duchess Cardigan knitted in Alpaca Light.

Next is Venita wearing her Happy Wristwarmers made in the colour Alpaca Dew. Happy Wristwarmers are knitted in our Medium yarn. They looked fabulous worn with her colourful cardigan.Venita bought yarn to complete the matching hat. We hope we’ll get to see it next year!

You might remember this lady from a recent post on Facebook? Elena came by on the stand to show us her Icon dress in person. She has done a brilliant job with it and we loved her choice in natural horn buttons. 

This stylish lady is Margaret. She bought the Persephone knitting kit last year and stopped by wearing the finished result. She has chosen to go for one button instead of the three in the pattern photo. It’s fabulous to see how you make the garments your own! She has knitted Persephone in the colour Alpaca Storm. 

Here are the other two outfits Sue wore. On the left she is wearing the Balboa Waistcoat knitted in the colour Alpaca Earth. She was very proud of this one and understandably so. The picture on the right is of Sue wearing the Allegro Shawl in the colour Alpaca Light. She looked so fab we instantly sold a kit to another customer on the stand whilst she was there! 

Apparently Rachel is getting used to fame, always having to stop for photos when wearing her knitted garments. She didn’t knit this Fantasia Cowl in Alpaca Light herself; the lucky girl had it knitted for her by a very good friend. Finally, you might recognise this lady? Kari-Helene was so proud of the Isis Tailcoat she knitted we had to show it on the blog. She started it at Alexandra Palace and finished it for the opening of Harrogate. You can come try it on at the next show we are at as it stays on the road as sample.

Harrogate was the last show of 2014 for us. Thank you so much to everyone who came to see us at all the shows, it has been so much fun as always. We are looking forward to seeing you again next year! You can keep an eye on our scheduled shows on the news and events page on the website.
