Handknitted scarf and penguin skirt today. And I still looked much smarter than in the burgundy suit I tried on in M&S at lunchtime, which mysteriously just seemed to make the spot on my chin look enormous. I can only assume that it was something to do with the contrast between the suit and my makeup-free, spotty complexion, which doesn’t look out of place at all in the clothes I normally choose to wear.
About this blogThis is me. I knit, and I’m trying to learn dressmaking, and I like bright colours and pretty clothes, and I have depression and have been depressed on and off for probably almost 30 years now. And it’s about time I stopped hiding that. Hello, everyone!
