Well, clearly not the setting, but it was a grey old day in Sydney and I was wearing a nondescript grey jumper. We saw on the news that Sydney had had a shocking storm the night before and, whilst we saw all the lightening, we were in our hotel and completely shielded from the hail and rain.

I machine knitted this jumper a couple of years ago. It is my own, very simple, pattern and I have never worked out what to do with the neckline, and have fiddled about with it quite frequently. I am still considering my options, but in the meantime I tend to wear it with a leather vest to give it a bit of finish. I used a Filatura di Crosa cashmere and silk Superior yarn, mixed with some pure cashmere bought from somewhere in the UK (I forget where). It is incredibly soft and incredibly warm. I am looking pleased with myself because I had just been to my favourite button shop in The Rocks and had done a bit of damage on the credit card.

It was a pretty windy day in Sydney…
