I'm so excited to be co-presenting QVC's new knitting show, Knitting Studio: Winter Warmers at 11am on Tuesday 3rd January, and can't wait to get started!
So, how did I get into knitting you might ask? Well, it was a random little notice pinned up in one of the Oxford street department stores that first caught my interest.
I didn't know it then, but this was the start of a hobby which would not only keep me busy and my mind active, but would also make me a host of lovely new friends – and of course, along the way, kit me out with a whole new cosy, flattering and made-to-measure wardrobe!
Later, I discovered just how fashionable knitting has become – many well-known celebrities are huge fans. But what surprised me most was just how easy it is, how quick it is to produce all manner of things, and, well, just how very relaxing it is!
The QVC Knitting Studio show will be packed full of ideas and inspiration. Whether you're a complete beginner, an experienced knitter, or just returning to it after many years, I've made sure there is something for everyone.
There are lots of gorgeous new yarns on offer – many of them not yet available in the UK. I've also popped in all sorts of useful knitting-related items too, such as some incredible mini-looms, needles of all kinds, project books and some perfect bags to put your knitting in – especially useful if, like me, you can't bear to be parted from it!
So make sure you don't miss Knitting Studio: Winter Warmers at 11am on Tuesday 3rd January – I can't wait! Hope you enjoy the show and please do let me know your feedback and comment below!
Meanwhile, back to the knitting – the housework can wait!
