I know this might seem a little like we are jumping on the Christmas jumper bandwagon (well, it is December after all) but trust us when we say we LOVE a novelty Christmas knit. From wonky Rudolphs, to bonkers baubles, it’s all about embracing the cheese come Christmas time. Just ask Colin Firth.
We wore our new George* Christmas jumpers out to a new night market in Bristol, which claims to be the city’s first street food event of its kind; combining local breweries, artists, music and all things Bristol. It was really a rather magical affair, with beautiful string lights and bunting decorating a courtyard packed with craft stalls, food stands (we went for a Minno wrap, yum!) and a big open fire. Inside the building, a former police station no less, we discovered a variety of art installations. We had a wonderful time exploring, especially when a kind stranger offered us a balloon each. It’s not often you spend your Friday evening stood in a police cell holding a party balloon, is it? Maybe it is.
Jo: I’m pretty obsessed with my Christmas pudding jumper*, so much so that I’m already quite distraught that I can’t wear it all year round. It’s so cosy and soft, I’m a real ball of comfort in it. I’m really impressed with the fit as it’s lovely and long without being loose. The arm length is great too. I have quite long arms and I am often left infuriated by insufficient sleeve length. As for the Christmas pudding, it’s a lovely fun design with a big pompom berry adding just the right amount of Christmas silliness. Perfect! And it even passed the sacred washing machine test!
Victoria: I had a blast at the night market and think The Island is a really cool venue. I look forward to heading to another event there soon. Their smoldering open fire wasn’t the only thing keeping me toasty that night, as I wore my perfectly pleasing Polar Bear jumper*. It’s so soft and comfortable that I never want want to take it off. In fact, I’m wearing it right now! The charming bear, who I have named Claude, really stands out, as the design is so great. Claude has won over all of my friends and if you’d like your very own Claude, I suggest popping to your local Asda RIGHT NOW, before he heads home with somebody else this Christmas.
