jumper:camden market rings:h&m & hand-made nail varnish:eyeko vintage

i went to camden market for the day last week with my mum and sister; i had forgotten how much i love it there!
mum kindly bought me this jumper, it is now one of the most comfortable things i own, and the rabbit looks just like the white rabbit in the alice in wonderland book i had as a child :)

i finally bought some wool from work yesterday, i cannot wait to get knitting again (i'm thinking a nice chunky hat & maybe a snood).
i'm still unsure about whether to sell any of my knitwear as wool is so expensive and i don't know if i'd be able to make a profit from it. it's really hard because i'd love to do it, but when shops like h&m and primark are selling knitwear for under £5, i wonder if people would be willing to spend more for hand-made pieces? decisions decisions. 
however, i have a few more cross stitch designs to post about and i'm constantly drawing up new ones so i'm sure they'll be up soon!

  2. Ooh that jumper is gorgeous (: I love the mulberry pink marl. I'd be willing to pay more for handmade knitwear, as someone who studied knitwear as a module at college a few years ago, I know how much time and effort and costs go into the whole process! xx

  3. Bunny! That alone makes this jumper a winner in my eyes.
    I think people would buy handmade knitwear, I understand why you're unsure because of the low prices on the high street but it's always lovely to have something that no one else has! x
