If you happen to be passing through East London for your Christmas shopping, why not pop in to KK Outlet gallery on Hoxton Square and marvel at their exhibition of alternative Christmas sweaters, Oh Come all Ye Hackers, created by artist Andrew Salomone.

The bad Christmas jumper is as much a seasonal staple as dry turkey and brussel sprouts. However Andrew Salomone and his hacked knitting machine are here to change all that.

My personal favourite:

“DO YOU HATE IT? NO, I LOVE IT!”

KK Outlet also have cute, stitch-inspired Christmas cards and gifts.

Cross-stitch Christmas

Merry stitchmas!
