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!
