Oh I really do love I Love Mr Mittens! Oversized, chunky and deliciously warm ILMM epitomises all that I enjoy about hand-knitted woollens. With colours to brighten up the greyest of grey days. I eagerly anticipate the loading of winter stock to their online shop, and think that a green cardi will have to be mine!
Kate Sylvester made my favourite cardigan ever, an acid green cable knit that I wore and wore until my boyfriend accidentally hot washed it and the dream was over. Luckily KS always makes space for beautiful knits in her collections - I love the detailing of this red Janetta Jumper and the sheer casual sexiness of her Alexa Jumper .
Everything Karla Spetic touches turns to pretty, so it is no surprise that her AW14 collection Crossroads includes a selection of the softest fluffiest jumpers and cardigans. The hand-knitted flower pullover is available for pre-order now perfectly timed for June delivery...snug snug snug.
I still have a lemon yellow pom pom cardi by Lonely Hearts, the dog ate one of the pom poms, but it is my go to slouch and snuggle cardi season after season. This year they have two beautiful hand-knit cardigans in long and short versions, available online soon.

Bell Sleeves yes please! There is something about the way you feel in a bell sleeve top, slightly bohemian and very feminine, in ivory or navy you really cant go wrong. I also love this Jack of Spades Crew a knitted cotton perfect for sunny yet brisk Autumn days.
