andrew salomone bad xmas sweaters Andrew Salomone's Bad Christmas Sweater Exhibit in London

We’re crazy proud of our own Andrew Salomone, who is in London right now preparing for the opening of his show, “O Come All Ye Hackers.”

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.
Salomone has developed an electronic hack, which means he can use a Brother KH930 knitting machine like a desktop printer to transform any design into a unique hand made Christmas jumper.
Throughout December KK Outlet will showcase a collection of alternative Christmas jumpers made by hand on Salomone’s hacked knitting machine. Designs supplied by Anthony Burrill, Siggi Eggertsson, Nous Vous, Genevieve Gaukler and features a knitted version of the Slayer Christmas Lightorama.

Andrew will even be taking orders for customized jumpers while he’s there. You can check the KK Outlet web site for more details. Way to go, Andrew!
