my new Aran cardigan

I bought this Aran cardigan on eBay last week for £19.99 brand new thinking it was probably acrylic and not the real thing; no one else bid and I won at the starting bid. The lady said it was an unwanted hand knitted gift, she was based in Scotland so something told me it might be ok. The picture wasnt very good either so it probably put people off. Similar were selling for far more so omagine my surprise this morning when it arrived at work. It's the same as this without the pockets, bargain of the year I think! Its beautifully knitted and I can't see any joins or seams, now we need some cold weather!

We've had our holiday on the Norfolk Broads, I'll update you with pictures and all about it soon. I hope you are enjoying the autumn sunshine, it was lovely at the weekend for walking Moss.

A bargain for sure. I still have the Aran sweater my other knitted for me about 20 years ago …and it still fits and it still keeps me really cosy warm.

keep well
