Knitters of London! Keep calm and carry yarn…

Posted at 8:00 am, October 14, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment, Fun London, Shopping & Style

Ever since the universally pined-after Ryan Gosling came out of the crotchet closet with his love of knitting, nannas across the nation have been set aside as more and more people have been on the purl. In light of the fashion knitting trend, John Lewis on Oxford Street is celebrating Wool Week (Oct 14-20) with a week of free fashion focused knitting classes in the morning and evenings, with drop-in sessions during the day. The classes will be lead by the coolest and best knitters in the fashion industry who will be teaching you to make anything from Christmas jumpers to snoods to baby hats, and there will also be a men’s only class on Monday October 14. If you’re just passing by, you can watch a bit of live action knitting in the shop window, with model Daisy Lowe and MIC’s Proudlock cracking out their needles in the shop front during the week. Ally Swadling
