Here’s a heart-warming story for you.
My friend Lucy returned from visiting her grandparent’s house in Shropshire recently and couldn’t believe what her nan had got up to.
Lucy said “I was just about to leave when my Nan got me on my own she said “Lucy, I’ve got something to show you!” and she went away rummaging through carrier bags of stuff under her chair with her back to me. When she turned around she held up this gigantic purple jumper. She said “I’m not sure what happened, I was knitting this jumper for your Granddad and I must have got the measurements mixed up.” I was in hysterics as my Nan knits for a living and has always got a set of needles in her hand. I put it on over my clothes and it absolutely swamped me! She proceeded to say that it had taken her six years to complete and would I be able to put it on eBay for her? After I stopped laughing I said “Sure, but didn’t you realise it was going to be too big?’ She replied “Yes, but I started it so I wanted to finish it!”
How funny is that?! I suggested to Lucy that we take some photos to start the ball rolling on an eBay auction to help raise some ‘wool funds’ for her Nan. She happily agreed.
So here is some photos of Lucy in ‘The Jumper’:
I will actually be asking my studio clients over the next few weeks to model The Jumper at the end of their session so we can generate some interest before Lucy creates an eBay auction. If you fancy joining the queue, just book a free studio session here:
