NOV­ELTY KNITS: Get set to jin­gle those jumpers,

Irish Examiner - Weekend - - News - says An­n­marie O’Con­nor

IN­SPI­RA­TION

What’s that smell? It’s the waft of cheese as the silly sea­son serves up that sar­to­rial icon­o­clast we all love to hate: the Christ­mas jumper. Once de­rided, now cel­e­brated (well, sort of), the kitsch knit has be­come an ironic wardrobe sta­ple since its re­cent re­nais­sance. From stock Santa and rein­deer mo­tifs to more elab­o­rate LED-lit bauble beau­ties, the ap­proach is carte blanche, pro­vided one’s tongue re­sides firmly in the cheek. Find your cracker and lay it on thick, folks. ‘Tis the sea­son, after all!
