A few days ago, on a whim, I ordered this fairisle sweater. I’d read about it on The Spike – the author hadn’t liked it as she said it was itchy and bulky but I was seduced by the 30% off and I really liked the design around the neck.
Now, I would like this a lot but I think I may have got a bit trimmer (possibly from all the running) and it looked enormous on me. While this is immensely flattering to my ego, it wasn’t enormous in a way that was flattering to my figure – basically, it looked as though I’d tried to borrow a giant’s jumper (even the sleeves were really long). So it has to go back. Which is good news, really, as my current account is looking a bit bare.
