Now happy to say making headway and feeling better.
I am sure it happens to many of you , when thinking about what to blog. One gets writers block. (what should I blog about today!) I have been in that mode for a while. Passing some time on IG.
Yesterday, it was the 3rd time that I drove myself to the village. I was very chuffed with myself indeed.
We have a clothes shop in the village , Dona A sells just about everything - all except Raglan sleeved cardigans. No luck, of course I have to settle for one that fits nicely and looks ok. I will have to be in the city to find one at the more up market clothes shops.
I really am short on cardigans, I need at least a nice new one for these cooler days of Autumn. Its on my clothes list for winter. Its cooler here in the mornings and evenings and i am slowly getting my lightweight in between season clothes out again.
With a little chuckle to myself, while driving home ,my dear mum came to mind. Today, I suppose she would be called a fashion guru!! She loved beautiful things and beautiful clothes, she always looked lovely. Even to do her shopping, she would wear her hats, and the finest of shoes. A fetish I inherited.
From an early age , I remember my mother taking me shopping for clothes.
Her choice for cardigans for us all was 'The Raglan Sleeve'- Ladies would show mum all kinds of cardigans , but mum would only choose the Raglan, said it looked smarter and fitted better.
I had a collection of beautiful Raglan cardigans in my wardrobe all of various colors, nothing to gordy of course.
Since those early years , thats what I still prefer. I find the normal rounded off sleeve hangs of the shoulder, and doesnt look as smart.
Today I thought I would post about the Raglan ..
When my children were born. Mum knitted a few lovely Raglan sleeved little jackets.. even for them , when they were newly born.. in soft white wool.
Just a little bit of something different today.
Thank you all my dear friends who left comments on my last post. I have missed you all.
What are you preferences in cardigans.
