A little while back, I wrote about my unexpected break from vlogging (you can read it here). I wasn’t even sure why I’d taken the break, even as I was writing the blog post. Was it too much work? Did vlogging get in the way of sewing? Was I losing my creativity?

And that’s why you find me here, trying to choose my new Winter jumper (or sweater, if you prefer). Read on to see my choices! Continue reading
