Christmas knitting patterns are a runaway success for woman in Norwich
Now the longer nights are drawing in, more people will be digging out their knitting patterns and carrying on with a project – but one woman in Norwich has taken things to the extreme.
Janet Knuth, 62, has set herself the target of creating 200 knitted tree decorations before Christmas, around 140 of which are due to go on sale at Lakenfields Christmas Fair on December 3rd, the Eastern Daily Press reports.
The mother of six and grandmother of 12 said she began after spotting the knitting patterns with a friend, but never expected them to become so popular.
“I have got orders that I am still fulfilling including some Christmas fairies, some robins sitting on a yule log and some Christmas stockings,” she told the newspaper.
“I’ll probably be knitting right up until Christmas Eve.”
Meanwhile, Contactmusic.com reports that model Lara Stone, the wife of comedian David Walliams, is putting her knitting patterns to good use by creating a hat for Elton John’s ten-month-old son.
