A winter woolly

Quite often, in the winter months, Ragged Ramblers use the opportunity of dark nights and cold days to spruce up the wardrobe.
There's nothing quite like a knitted cardigan with fine diamond patterning and polished wooden buttons.
Here, one of our number is modelling an example knitted by none other than Aunty Gary during his usual extended lunch break.
"You see, it's all in the twist" he explained. " I like to ensure everything is twisted and then it can't go wrong."
"Balls, twisted balls. That way when you knit, it keeps tight and helps you get your needles in and your pearls don't drop."

I must say that I haven't the foggiest what he's on about, but rarely do we ever.

I will endeavour to post more of the Rambler's unique styles here to share with the world.
It is hoped to have an exclusive of the Gunton Dandy's cape, monocle and tweed bowtie.
Speak soon. What.

    I should say so. Twisted. Yes

    Knitted gorgeousness

  3. Hello,

    We knew immediately that we had arrived at our spiritual Blogtopia when we saw these delicious twin knits. What indeed could be better or more stylish for the winter months?

    The diamond patterning saves on the need for any further ornamentation so the white tie and tiara can stay at home. We can just see ourselves in these delightful matching cardies at the Opera, the ballet or rock concerts. They are so versatile and, importantly, useful for warding off any wintry chills.

    Thank you so much.......the only problem is that we do not knit. Can we order a couple from Aunty Gary?

    We have so enjoyed our stay that we shall return.........bad luck!
