I made this red cowl neck jumper about two years ago, out of a yarn I purchased at Spotlight - it's a mix of wool, mohair and soya fibre. It was strange to knit with and doesn't handle the same as mohair - it's got a bit of bounce to it.
I just love the cowl neck - it's flattering, but not so deep and saggy that it gets in the way (or catches too many toast crumbs from winter lunches !)
This is my black version - and although a similar yarn, it knitted up quite differently. I love both of these jumpers though, and the odd idiosyncratic happening just adds to the me made charm.
The cowl on the black version is more like an oversized roll neck collar - but it is still smart to wear.
As you know, I have made three skirts recently out of corduroy - a straight skirt and two A-Line skirts.

And they also work with my polar fleece leggings:
These garments may not be the height of fashion but they are warm and lovely to wear as casual garments. And style, as far as I am concerned, is having the right sort of garments for the right sort of occasion. What better than a casual handknit, cosy skirt and tights, or leggings, to keep warm on a cold, wet, winter's day at home.
So, that is my winter wardrobe gallery for this year. I hope to add to it next year.
