By the time it came to Autumn, we were keen to try some knitwear. My love of the Danish television programme The Killing, but in particular my crush on Sarah Lund’s infamous jumper (So warm! So patterned! So Danish!) made it impossible to resist. The obvious route to cosy is on the jumper express, cardigans being a bit, er, buttony. And so the experimentation began. Luckily, our lovely dressmaker, Pat, is very fond of knitting as well as sewing. And, there are lots of hand-knitted things that turn up in charity shops. We started lurking around outside local charity shops awaiting delivery. This in no way made us look weird.
