A few months ago, when the temperature started to drop I realised that I really didn’t have very many warm cosy clothes to see me through the winter and I definitely didn’t have any knitwear. Talking to my friends they were all shocked to hear that I literally didn’t own one single knitted jumper, but I’m happy to say this has been rectified and I am now the proud owner of not just one cosy item of knitwear but in fact three!!!
JD Williams very kindly offered to let me try out a few pieces from their new season collections and I jumped at the chance to add some knitwear to my wardrobe. After scrolling through their array of gorgeous items for what felt like hours (there were just too many beautiful pieces to chose from), I finally settled on three jumpers and I honestly could not be happier or more in love with them.
I cannot believe that I’ve not really worn knitwear before and I’m not sure why because all three of my new jumpers are the cosiest, softest garments to have ever graced my wardrobe. To say I’ve been living in the pink and grey patchwork jumper for the last few weeks would not be an understatement (just ask my friends and family!!). My Mum kindly offered to model the Buena Knit Pullover, if I’m honest this is probably the one I’ve worn least but is also the thinner of the three so I’m sure it will come into its own when the weather starts to warm a little.
The Curved Hem Poncho is definitely the knitted poncho of dreams, long enough to wear with leggings (especially if you’re short like myself) or just as comfy and cosy over jeans. I was worried this might swamp my smaller frame but I just feel like I’m walking around in the softest blanket and have had so many wonderful compliments whilst wearing it.
I think I’ve always been concerned that I might accidentally shrink knitwear but actually these have been really easy to care for. I always wash our clothes at 30 degrees anyway so haven’t needed to change the temperature we use, I only thing I have to remind myself is not to tumble dry- and surprisingly they dry super quickly on the airer in our lounge!
Are you a knitwear hoarder or more of knitwear ‘beginner’ like me?
