FASH­ION AND BEAUTY

It’s a per­fect time to think about knit­ted clothes

Ithink my ear­li­est mem­ory of knit­ting was when my mother told me how her mother used to knit her clothes dur­ing the war.

The fun­ni­est story she told me was when she was knit­ted a swim­suit that looked fab­u­lous (although a lit­tle itchy) until she en­tered the sea . . . when the dense fi­bres ab­sorbed the wa­ter, the swim­suit sagged out of all pro­por­tion!

To­day, with all the new knit­ting tech­nolo­gies on the mar­ket, we’re un­likely to see a knit­ted swim­suit, but this sea­son’s knit­ting fash­ion picks are def­i­nitely on­trend.
