We have a £500 Needle comp winner!

As a Needle knitwear superfan who recently shrank my most treasured cashmere jumper from the luxe brand in the wash (never have I seen my middle superbrat more excited, as it now fits her slight 8 year old frame) it is through gritted teeth that I announce the winner of last month’s £500 Needle comp.

And the lucky dabber who can now throw cashmere all over her floor and roll around on it in gay abandon is …  (*sorry I have to compose myself here, my feelings are unkind*)…  Mary Shelley-Smith! Mary, get in touch with me at and I’ll connect you to the Needle girls for that monkey of magnificent knitwear.

Those of us left bereft by the thought of no Needle goodies for free, hey, don’t worry – it’s not the end of the world. Firstly, we can still go online and buy our favourite bits (I’m gunning for the colour block coat, and there’s lots of gorgeous AW14 cashmere is massively discounted).

Secondly, I have a fantastic competition starting tomorrow that will knock your socks off. Shall we just say ‘luxury weekend away’…?
