College shortlisted for national green accolade

Have your say

SHEFFIELD’s menfolk will be swapping footballs for yarn balls when they get the chance to knit their very own derby day scarf.

John Lewis in Barker’s Pool is holding a men only knitting class from noon until 2pm tomorrow, ahead of Sunday’s big match.

Knitting experts will teach participants how to cast on, cast off and make blue and white or red and white scarves.

Men of all ages are invited to go along to the Haberdashery department on the ground floor for the free class.

Bev Hodgkinson from John Lewis, said: “Derby Day is such a massive occasion for the city and we wanted a unique way to celebrate.”
