Winter is well and truly upon us. As a result- the wonderful knits so renowned with the solstice are in full circulation- and as you may have noticed- have been for some time.
From hats to gloves to scarfs to cardigans and back up to even more hats, wool really is the word for this; the season to be jolly.
Though Christmas has (sadly?) been and gone, you can retain a little pleasure in the fact that you’ll now have a bit of bonus dough to fling about on some excellent knitted goods.
Yes, there was a time when I too felt as though knitwear was best reserved for those born prior to 1950. However, just because something retains archaic roots in an era that has been and gone- does not mean to say it may never return. A statement true nowhere more than in fashion, surely?
A fan of knitted hats primarily, I seem to have an unending supply of them- utilising the beauties all year round. I’d actually advise you to do the same, regardless of garment categorisation.
Though unmistakably the correct time to purchase your knitwear, some of it just isn’t all that suitable for the frostbitten climate we must endure at this time of the year. It’s no secret that the most fortified knit you will ever get your hands on will come from your grandmother- and unfortunately, most brands just fail to make the grade when it comes to both warmth and integrity- unless you’re up for spending some serious coin that is.
Though there is much room for originality when it comes to sculpting your own woollen vibe, you must also be wary of the obvious- as with the obvious come the awkward and perhaps even hate-filled glances between you and the guy(s) with the exact same sweat on at the New Year party…
