Talk­ing bag­gy sweats. Snug­gle up.

Much to the dis­may of my sum­mer-lov­ing friends, the cold­er sea­sons have once again come rush­ing into my open arms. We’re talk­ing bag­gy sweats today. Snug­gle up. Hav­ing always grav­i­tat­ed towards plain and neu­tral tones, I nev­er gave myself the oppor­tu­ni­ty to explore the fan­tasies of opti­cal-illu­sion pat­terns. I mean, aside from that one Christ­mas H&M jumper I felt oblig­ed splurge on by virtue of Christ­mas sea­son in Hong Kong, and which has only sat uncom­fort­ably on my shoul­ders on one occa­sion, I’ve nev­er actu­al­ly been a fanat­ic of the said print sit­u­a­tion. So when this mind-blog­gling knit arrived in the mail I was more than sur­prised I actu­al­ly liked it more than any oth­er sweater I owned pre­vi­ous­ly. We’re only halfway through 2016 and I am final­ly tick­ing off one of my new years’ res­o­lu­tions - try some­thing new and actu­al­ly like it. Here’s to cold tem­per­a­tures and all things knit.
