Muddy wears Needle-sharp knits
Finally. Finally. I’d been waiting for nearly six weeks, through miserable drizzly, windblown days all through March, with my little parcel of joy, below, ready for the moment that the sun peeped through the clouds and I could finally wear my new designer jumper.
This weekend I seized the moment, and as you can see, took modelling duties extremely seriously. Why I haven’t been called up as one of those newly trendy middle-aged supers à la Turlington, Evangelista and McMenamy is beyond me.
This little sunny blue 100% cotton cable knit number is called ‘Bea’ (the designers at Needle like to give the jumpers girls names) – it’s a flattering cut actually, like most of their jumpers – forgiving on the belly, and the right length to skim your buttski. A good weight too. On a suddenly nippy early evening it kept me warm, but I can imagine at full cotton it’s not too chunky for the day either with denim shorts and some serious wedges.
Anyone who reads Muddy will know that I have the most outrageous collection of Needle jumpers as I am a mega-fan, but you’ll have to hurry fast for this season – the label is incredibly trendy at the mo, and is selling out super-fast. Try them online, via Anthropologie or if you’re local to Haddenham, there’s a groovy little gift and lifestyle shop White Hart Studio that has a smattering of them too.
Next on my list? Well, since you ask, I’m gunning for this 100% colour block cashmere number (below). Yes ‘Beatrix’, I think we’re going to be the best of friends very soon.
