Let the new knitwear season commence!

Whoops, double whoops and thrice times whoops.....this returned home with me on Saturday. For a measly 350 pennies I could hardly leave it behind now could I especially with it's oh so pretty copper metallic thread running through it.


Yes like I needed it [not] but oh the lure of new-to-me knitwear. I laid every sensible/decluttering/eco argument aside with indecent haste and raced out of the door with it the minute my precious groats had left my sweaty little paw. At least on the upside the charity shop benefited from my profligate unplanned purchase!

  1. I can't resist a metallic thread!
    That jumper will make winter a lot more fun - I'd rather this gorgeous weather lasted forever though! x

    1. I am loving the sunshine right now and am in no hurry to be in my woollies. I do my best to wear strong and sometimes bright stuff over the winter as I'm very pale. Arilx

  2. Bargainous indeed! Purchasing new to you is planet friendly - may be not to the wardrobe however there is, as you say, an upside :)

    1. Practically all my stuff is charity shopped. I started as a student in the 1980s and never got out of the habit. Thriftiness runs through my veins and I hate the thought of seeing everyone else wearing the same thing!
