Daily: London Calling

We are currently in the middle of what’s predicted to be one of the season’s biggest snowstorms today. Luckily for me, the spring semester just started, which means plenty of reading, homework, tea, and my roommate! My roommate just got back from studying abroad in London during January. She brought me some goodies, two of which are being showcased today along with my finished cardigan. Here’s the breakdown:

Cardigan: Handmade
Camisole: Gap
Plaid Button-Up: Goodwill (American Eagle)
Jeggings: Elle (Kohl’s)
Boots: Garage sale
Earrings: Peebles
Pins: Gifts 

As motivation for getting my cardigan done, my mom ordered three pins off of eBay to go along with my sweater. In the Vogue Knitting magazine where I got the pattern for the cardigan, they styled it with a plaid shirt underneath with English pins on it. My mom was sweet enough to hunt down some pins to match. Then my roommate bought some pins in England that go perfectly with the sweater. Sneaky roommate.

I have two other projects already started: a hat and another sweater. I’d better get hopping on those if I want to wear them while it’s still chilly outside!
