A Jumper of Easter-ness


I am pleased to say that I managed to dodge vast quantities of chocolatey goodness this Easter. The same cannot be said of cheese cake, brownie & ice cream, cider and one of the biggest and bestest roast dinners I have had in a long time. The yorkshire pudding alone was the size of an armchair.

In celebration of the Springy time of year -  which has graced us for the Bank Holiday with glum and chilly weather in the UK - I decided to give a cheery jumper an air..



I am utterly, totally and uberly in love with this jumper. This was hand knitted by one of my most lovelyest pen-pals. Yes. Someone I have only ever written to made this for me. As a gift *chuffed*

When I opened it, I actually screeched with joy. It is made of the soft yellow wool which is exactly the same colour as daffodils.


So whilst visiting my Folks, I decided to ponce about whilst caressing actual daffs. I adore the jumper's puffy sleeves and all it's intricate detail. I can just about manage a plait -  so knitting it waaaay outta my league. 

Lucky I have friends with the clicky-clacky-knitty-natty ability then, eh.


Not that the jumper needs adding to in any way - but I felt that this delightful handmade posy brooch from my new sponsor Viola Rose would look rather nice with it.  

I am not, in fact, pointing to my boobulous.


I decided to give The Beard a break from taking my photo. We had been frantically taking lots of pics of new stock for Well Rounded Vintage before my family arrived. Lots of lovely frocks upon the horizon folks!


And then there was lots of laughter, scoffing of cheese cake and listening to my dear Nan swear more than has ever been known.  Which in itself was cheek acheingly hilarious. I can't imagine where I get it from...


Hope you all had a nice break full of chocolate and a carboot trove or two!

  23. I covet knit wear from this era, but as I can't knit to save my life...well not past abortive cat blankets!....I have to admire other people's, it fabulous and really suits you. I would love to find someone who makes these in size bigger boob, unfortunately all I have managed to turn up are those who knit to pattern size, which are very small indeed.

  24. Oh what a sweet yellow knitted sweater!
    Your hair is particularly lovely, so golden brown shiny amor.
    That baby blue flower brooch is just so darn adorable
    besios

  25. That jumper is absolutely AMAZING!!! I want one!

    And your hair looks fabulous too, that must have taken you a little while to master! How do you keep it from going frizzy? I always have the issue that I look rather windswept by the time I get home. Any tips on that one?

    looking forward to catching up on some of your posts, been offline for a while. New laptop has fixed that issue now though!
