It’s April, it should be Autumn but we have been subjected to those sunny chilly mornings that you get in the middle of winter. For the last 3 days it has been 2 degrees for my walk to work. To put that in perspective your fridge is set between 2 and 4 degrees!
So what to wear?
- A jumper instead of a shirt with my suit – generally a machine knit so it is thin.
- A cowl under the collar of my jacket unless the jumper is a turtle neck
- A winter weight shawl pinned at the shoulder or my alpaca coat
- Fingerless mitts to keep my hands warm but still enable me to do things like buy a coffee.
I have an airconditioned office so I need to be able to peel back the layers so I don’t cook inside but it all needs to be easy to throw on because the middle of the day temperature is around 10 – 12 degrees.
For this type of weather my Holly Shawl is invaluable. It is made from 12 balls of Silkroad Aran, that is a lot of wool to wrap myself in.
