Knitting challenge back on track

Date Published: 19/08/2009

Any regular readers will recall that we had some fun when our Certification Manager, Steve Clarkson, was the lucky winner of a Farmers Weekly knitting pattern. Oh did we laugh.

We promised then that the jumper would be made and he would be forced to model it. Well, I’m afraid that hasn’t happened. The reason being that Mr C managed to stymie us by failing to obtain the wool – a task we foolishly left in his hands. So, we’ve taken it out of his hands.

Our CEO, Richard Jacobs, is a man who appreciates the value of a good woolly pully, so he’s authorised a mission to locate the necessary yarn, have the jumper knitted and ensure (on pain of the removal of hot drink privileges, if necessary) that the man of the moment is photographed in it from as many angles as possible.

The excitement at this prospect is tangible in the office.

Oh and to all those who have contacted us trying to track down a copy of the pattern, we have that in hand. It’s being scanned (with the permission of the good folk at FW) and will be emailed soon. We hope you get as much pleasure out of it as we are!
