Cable Knit




headband, handmade
jumper, handmade by my nanna
shorts, levi's
boots, office


This florescent red cable jumper was knitted by my nanna for my mum in the 80s or something. Its pretty old anyway and really really bright!

Yesterday was crazy fun, me and my cousin Holly went charity shop shopping and made turban headbands like the one above. We turned her room into a sweat shop and worked almost the whole day on them. I love head wear and there is nothing more satisfying then making your own. We still need to make some more as we found an amazing horse print scarf that is next on our list to convert into some trendy head wear.
