Delivering a Timely Message for the ITV Tonight Show

img_3300When the pressures on we are right there in the woolly mix, knee deep and tangled, you might say (Sounds like the title of my autobiography waiting to be written…’Knee Deep and Tangled’). Christmas does bring its own pressures but we love being a part of others celebrations even though this next one was an unusual one but certainly worthwhile and deserving of our dedicated attention.

 

p1040325We’ve been recently working closely with Lauren Conner from the ITV Tonight show and helping them visualise their TV segment about fraud (recently aired on ITV on the 1st of December).

We of course jumped at the chance to help out and without any further ado were keen to get down to the specifics.

img_3297The folks at the Tonight program wanted four children’s jumpers each sporting their own statistic. Colours and design were very important to them as you can see from the pictures. Given the backdrop and the adorable little ones sporting our creations they wanted something that stood out, real eyecatchers, whilst maintaining the integrity of the reporting.

 img_3299It was our pleasure then, as always to realise their vision and within a week we were ready to hand deliver their custom made jumpers to Media City in Manchester.

 

img_3296Thanks to all then especially Lauren for their enthusiasm for our jumpers. It’s always amazing to us to experience the fun created by these little Woolley wonders, no more so than at this time of year.

Merry Christmas to you all.

So Here it is Merry ChristmasSaurus

img_3254Hey Everyone. Remember a few weeks ago we told you the exciting news that, to accompany Tom “McFly Guy” Fletcher’s release of his new children’s book, The Christmasaurus, that the very special elf’s in charge were going to give one lucky person the chance to get their hands on The Christmasaurus jumper knitted by yours truly.
For those who missed it check out our recent blog which featured Tom sporting the jumper as well as the whole lotta love he was getting for his new jumper when he took it onto Facebook and live streamed himself wearing it.
The special elf’s in question are those at WHSmith and all they ask of you is that you follow them on Instagram or Twitter and share their post…It’s so easy. I’ve put the links in this post to make it even easier.
What a way to kick off your Christmas.
Make sure you have a warm snuggly one.

Looks Like Oak Furniture Land are Gearing Up for Christmas.

p1040163And we are very proud that they came to bexknitwear.com with their very specific requirements for the star of their latest festive television advert. Of course, I’m talking about our bespoke jumper. Have a look at the beautiful.

Turns out the specifics of the design were very critical as well as the delivery of this lovely knitted jumper. It meant that we could work closely with Lucy Hallard, wardrobe stylist on behalf of Oak Furniture land in delivering the jumper that suited them and their latest campaign.

From colours to the all-important logo to a superfast delivery it was very gratifying when a very appreciative team called it…’Amazing’ Thanks Lucy for your support and thinking of us.

oak-furniture-landIt certainly was a great experience working closely with our clients and we are very proud of the service we can offer all our customers who are looking for something unique and special, tailor made to suit you.

So now the advert is currently running on TV why not let us know if you spot the jumper in action and don’t forget to get in touch with us with your ideas for this coming festive season…and beyond.

Pretty Fly for a McFly Guy

14492617_10154705152780572_6302829724102981267_n1Some people just can’t wait for Christmas. I think it’s the thought of giving gifts and of course receiving said gifts throughout the year and then suddenly the spirit of giving seems to gain momentum, usually about November time.

But for some like our latest fan, Tom Fletcher from the Pop band McFly the Christmas spirit overcame him over 12 months ago when he started to pen his first children’s novel, The Christmasaurus. It’s already on sale from every available word boutique in the real and digital world.

img_1288We were very excited then when it came to launching his book that he and Andrea Bowie of Penguin Books approached bexknitwear.com to produce a woolly jumper for the book signings of his new book.

What a great way to celebrate such an important event in anyone’s live. At bexknitwear.com we have seen this right from the beginning. Our jumper lovers have enjoyed our creations for their cosiness and snugness while having a unique creation that has literally become personal and dear to them because of the unique way they become part of the significant events in their lives…and all this from one of our jumpers.

img_1320If you want to see just how excited Tom was wearing his Jumper click over to his Facebook page and see the jumper in action. Fans will also be treated to a reading of a snippet from The Christmasaurus. Sorry though fans of knitting, Christmas and McFly……………crumpets not included with the book or with one of our jumpers I’m afraid. I’ll have scoffed em’ before my needles are out of the holster.

 

Talking of giving stuff away…

christmasaurusPenguin just may be running a competition related to the books release by giving away a second jumper just like Tom’s…I know this because I’m busy knitting it all together right now.

So watch this space for further developments and if you’re a fan of great seasonal children’s fiction then it looks like The Christmasaurus could be the perfect stocking filler……so long as we knitted it of course…the stocking, not the book.

Love

a4c4433f6b299a11a9d4edbe1b223d24Do you think we are excited about our new Website update?

You bet we are. The prospect of reaching out further across the planet is almost too much for us to bare. In some cases, it has led to talks of giving stuff away in the form of discounts to everyone who visits our site…Now that is something worth sharing. But before I tell you about that let me tell you about some of the ways you can connect to us and benefit from your bexknitwear.com experience.

 

As well as all our pictures receiving some TLC to make them crisper and clearer, adding to overall look and feel of the site, we have now hooked up with:

IMG_2101Instagram

Facebook and Twitter remain the giants of ‘joining hands’ across the planet and has served us well and will continue to do so in plotting our ‘lives in wool’.

This was Better Than Getting The Golden Ticket

Keeping your cool in the face of the chocolate onslaught this season might proof a little tricky for some folks, including us here at bexknitwear.com (mainly me).

Already as I cast a merry seasonal glance over the bexknitwear kingdom, there is so much chocolate about that I’m sure I will start dreaming about the stuff. One day I know I’m going to wake up to the sound of my little rustling knitting elves hurriedly adding the finishing touches to another dream I had once, that of an edible chocolate jumper. Mmmmm……where was I?

CadburysSo dear readers you can imagine how thrilled I was to get the call from Cadburys to design them two very special jumpers fit for the Christmas season. Okay they aren’t edible but this is how they would look if I had my way.

So many thanks to Georgina from Cadbury’s and the opportunity to spend hours and hours and hours researching chocolate. I hope you all enjoy your new Christmas Jumpers….(sorry you can’t eat them…Yet).
