A Baby Blanket fit for a Prince….or a Princess

2015-04-23 20.31.35-2When bexknitwear was asked to be involved with Abbeyfield care homes to be a part of a celebration that would mark the arrival of William and Kate’s new baby you can bet your knee socks we jumped at the chance. It was after the jumper we had a hand in for Radio and TV presenter and singer Aled Jones and of course were grateful to be involved again. 2015-04-24 18.19.24Abbeyfield is an amazing charitable organisation, dedicated to improving the care of older people and enhancing their quality of life since 1956. It is our chosen charity and because it counts HRH the Prince of Wales as its Patron the residents have all come together and created this lovely blanket for his highness’s new grandson or granddaughter. Each square was lovingly knitted by the residents in Abbeyfield’s pastel colours of light blue, green, yellow, light orange, pink and white, colours fit for a little prince or princess. 2015-04-23 14.22.19What a wonderful time we had meeting the residents of Abbeyfield care homes as we took their hard work and transformed the pieces into the royal blanket. Pulling the whole thing together (in this case quite literally) was going to be the biggest challenge given that we only had five days to sort through the squares, grouping them together due to different thicknesses and sizes and colours that complimented each other perfectly before presenting the complete blanket back to Abbeyfield for the photo shoot and press release soon to be rolled out to the nation. 2015-04-24 18.19.32But we did it! Working nonstop we brought the blanket together and delivered it on time. And now it is in the hands of the charities chief executive Natasha Singarayer who says she is looking forward to sending the finished blanket to the new heir. 2015-04-24 18.19.44What a great experience for all involved and now we can’t wait for it to be presented…but like the royal couple and the nation behind them, we are waiting for baby to make an appearance. Prince or Princess…with our blanket they are assured a very warm welcome.   Madame Clickety Click

Keeping the Terraces Warm is Our Goal for the Season

018In days gone by as we watched our favourite football teams tearing up the pitch, a fervent attempt at getting those few precious points, the only thing that kept us warm on the terraces was a hot pasty and a few mouthfuls of Bovril (other sinister flame rich beverages are available but not nearly as comparable). The familiar sounds of a well worn but soothing footie chant would drift across on a chilled breeze and the sight of a sea of bodies bobbing to their own tribal beat may have been enough to warm the heart but in most cases not the extremities.

033As conjures and purveyors of woollen apparel, you may guess, dear reader where we are going with this footie theme.

Flying the flags of our beloved Football teams is not exclusive to the UK but it sure does feel like it is when we stand shoulder to shoulder amidst a forest of team colours, the beautiful game represented by an abundance of shirts and flags and hats, all wonderfully unique and precious in the eyes of the wearer.

030As you know if you are a frequent visitor to our blog, we are always on the lookout for the unique, especially the unique ways in which you want to wear and show off your hand knitted jumpers. Already familiar badges are starting to appear on jumpers around the isle and we should know because we put them there. We’ve stuck a few pics in this post as you may have gleaned.

Okay is it me or is this a great gift for the dedicated followers of that handsome pastime? And what about kitting out the new arrivals in your life. That’s right a kit with a knit, fit for your bouncing baby as they dribble their way through your lives. What a unique way of celebrating your favourite team and of course getting your family on side as it were.

boroI hope you like these examples of sporting celebration. Get in touch with your ideas for your perfect jumper…We can’t wait to hear them.

Being The Leader Of The Pack With Our Jumpers Is Easy

From the dawn of time and really before then, when the Gods made love and first conceived the notion of knitting needles and their clicking together, you may have been forgiven in thinking it was the start of a certain percussive tribal music, that clicking together of bone fragments. But then by chance a flock of sheep happened along the way and thus through a swirling soup of legend and unmentionable dark stuff, the woolly jumper was born….

…What? It’s most probably the truth….

Anyway your lack of faith in my explanation aside; our great hand crafted jumpers like those around the world have been the billboards of our lives and there’s no reason to assume that will end anytime soon.

HarleyAs I have said and, has been a constant theme throughout my blogs to the world: Anything goes as far as getting your message out there and we are always so proud that you want to sport your wisdom and the things that matter to you on our hand-knitted Jumpers.

triumph.This blog post then, features those fine individuals who pour their passion into motorcycles and will think nothing of throwing off their leathers and wallowing in their downtime with a cosy hand-knitted jumper.

These beauties would melt the heart of any Biker Gang Overlord and have them running for grannies house and fitting out his entire gang. (Okay that’s enough with the stereotypes…)

triumphIf you need something to kit out your club or society especially on those cold nights or even if you’ve started thinking about your annual gatherings toward the end of the year… (I’m being good…I’m trying not to mention the C word) then get in touch with us and we will make your dreams come true in a woolly fashion right across your chest.

 

Disclaimer: These jumpers have near magical powers in transforming the faces of the recipient but they are not a suitable replacement for your protective leathers if occasionally you like to clamour upon the iron horse.

velocetteThese Jumpers also make a unique gift for the enthusiast (it just depends what you’re into) and should spark some creativity amongst you dear readers for the lovely ones in your lives.

In the meantime my faithful bunch of wild ones hang high and tight…and…Let’s be careful out there.

Love

Festive Eye-Catchers on the Eighteenth Green – I’m Talking About the Jumper.

IMG_4239Every sport played at the top level and all levels in between demands the very best equipment. Having the best gear to hand, crafted for purpose will undoubtedly focus all attention on the competitor, it’s all part of the journey to be the best and that’s why we went all Olympian on this, our next exciting project.

No matter what time of year around the globe, nothing it seems is more precious than our love of sports, in particular that of golf. We were recently reminded of this when we were asked to whip up 16 Jumpers for the golfing enthusiasts who make up some of the members of the Dubai golf club. Nothing unusual here about sporting golfing jumpers, except these are bexknitwear jumpers so expect the unexpected. Sporting golf jumpers they are, but they are also jumpers sporting our favourite fella often seen this time of year: Santa Claus.

IMG_4247Yes he’s Universally accepted around the world and in his shorts and Hawaiian shirt he’s all set to sink a few, soak up the sun and then…maybe sink a few (if you know what I mean)….even Santa occasionally enjoys some down time.

So thanks guys for your order and reminding us that a successful round of golf isn’t always down to the clubs, the lay of the land or the prevailing wind.

Sometimes it’s all about the knit.

Our Jumpers Come in Two’s, Three’s, However Many You Fancy

I wonder if animal jumpers featured heavily in the gift shop of Noah’s Arc?

Here’s one thing for sure: we wouldn’t be short a few jumpers and ideas for animal jumpers for his stock room and display shelves. Just look at some of the mesmerising array of creatures that have adorned the front of our woolly numbers…But don’t blame us. It’s you lot, brilliant and creative, dear readers that you are.

If it wasn’t for your suggestions it probably wouldn’t have occurred to us to celebrate the animal kingdom in such a bright and colourful way. Whether you’re celebrating a beloved pet or championing a world-wide cause, you are there with your wondrous apparel and, if we can play our part then we are there too, by your side…all the way.

Your enthusiasm for the furry and feathery kind also sparked within us an understanding of the need to kit out your favourite pets with their very own garb. How about the dog jumper celebrating his or her owner…Now that’s just too crazy-cute isn’t it?

Bet you never thought to ask about a set of woolly jumpers for your pets.

Well now’s your chance. Come and visit our website @ http://www.bexknitwear.com and start talking to us. Let’s hear your ideas for the cute and cuddlies.

The Colourful World of Knitting – Welcome to the Dark Side.

10356259_1501039713444742_8879196274471176660_nHerding the sheep and goats, separating them into two groups does sound a little too biblical for my liking, so you will be pleased to know that I am not referring to some Disney inspired end of the world rapture. I am in fact talking about my two brand new Facebook Fan pages. One for the sheep lovers with a grasp of the sinister and one for the goat fanciers who crave a bit of silken fluff in their lives.
Am I making myself clear or is this another case of knitting needle muscle memory in my fingers, let loose upon my keyboard? What I mean to say dear, patient reader is that I have created not one but two Facebook fan pages, the links to which can be found below.
Mohair Magic
https://www.facebook.com/bexknitwear
Goth Knits
https://www.facebook.com/gothknits

10492075_779161065451532_857446385285828751_nOne is for my Mohair fans, called Mohair Magic and the other is for my dark and strangely intriguing group of Goths called Goth knitwear.
So have a look for me and let me know what you think. Maybe you’d like to join one of them or both. Hey there’s no shame in it. Just think of it as an angel and a devil on your shoulder fighting for a bit of head space.
I’ll be honest with you guys I am loving the diversity in the tastes you guys present to me and I’m glad I’m a part of it. 10372009_777172752317030_700679637544622229_nAnd hey look what happens when these two worlds collide. Goth Mohair. I’m surely the Frankenstein of the knitting world.
So whatever you’re fancy, come along, chase the link and like our pages and then forward them on to your friends and help spread the word. The obvious advantage to you guys is that I can keep you up to date with what is next from Madame Clickety-Click and her knitting shenanigans down at bexknitwear.com.
Of course another way of keeping in touch is to follow this blog and instantly you will receive a non invasive email with the latest news and blog update.
As always, great love and stay in touch.
Looking forward to hearing from your darker side but keep it light…

Ethical Knitting – Saving the Planet One Stitch at a Time

SupersheepIf you’re going to be a superhero and save the world you’ve got to start somewhere and, it may just be a small step for knitted jumper lover but rest assured it will be a giant leap for the knitting kind.

So how do you dear reader, take your small steps to impact a world that is badly in need of an environmental awakening. Well one way is to support your vendors who are doing what they can to reduce costs and save the planet, in our case one stitch at a time.

Here at http://www.bexknitwear.com we are proud to announce that all our dealings and processes are helping to reduce our carbon footprint and this looks set to continue as we power our business and service to you by smilinglambreal human beings. We are highly trained in reducing transport costs and keeping packaging costs to a minimum. Our yarns too are locally sourced from genuine Yorkshire sheep, who as far as we can tell are pleased to cast off their clothes for the warmth and comfort of all our customers.

So help us strike a blow at this throwaway society, where even your jumpers are being turned into ‘fast food’ like commodities as they are indiscriminately churned out on machines one day and tossed out the next.

STOP THE CLONING OF OUR JUMPERS!!

Caring about our jumpers means caring about the planet. What better way than to create something so unique and meaningful that the attitude of care and respect continues and spreads as we ship them out to you.

And all this from a knitted Jumper?

You better believe it.
