trying again

lovely but very pricey

AnyFucker Sun 06-Sep-09 18:59:21

no, too much material in it

looking purely at the photo, it doesn't seem to justify the price

looks more like summat you could buy from BHS

sorry, you did ask smile

cocolepew Sun 06-Sep-09 18:59:35

No, sorry.

Very nice if you want to look like you're wearing a blanket. An expensive blanket.

EleanoraBuntingCupcake Sun 06-Sep-09 19:00:23

nope, but tk max is overflowing with this sort of blankety cardigan hybrid atm

No way too much draping at the front

M and S did a cardy like that which i wore whilst pregnant. All the extra yardage rapidly became extremely annoying.

sorry i agree with AF

No, it's the sort of thing a large loud woman in a provincial arts centre would wear.
Accessorised with short grey hair, ethnic earrings and Clarks shoes.
Oh, and probably a hapless foreigner or two in tow.
('Do meet Luis, my Peruvian exchange student!')

i have a lovely pattern for a blanket cardie if you are into knitting at all.

janeite Sun 06-Sep-09 19:02:57

Nope - sorry. It looks like one of the 'hand woven by goats' things that Toast often have.

Unless you are very skinny, it will make you look like a small hippo.

£179 shock for a cardigan?

EleanoraBuntingCupcake Sun 06-Sep-09 19:03:06

yes moondog and at 'events' she wears a turban

moondog Sun 06-Sep-09 19:03:37

You know her too do you? grin

MarshaBrady Sun 06-Sep-09 19:04:21

No, and it's acrylic I would go for wool or cashmere.

moondog Sun 06-Sep-09 19:04:47

It's amazing how women love this stuff and men can't bear it isn't it?
(I admit to having irratinoal weakness for seedsack and goat blanket poncho look myself, which i fight!)

TheCrackFox Sun 06-Sep-09 19:05:04

Moondog - that is so spot on. grin Uncanny. She will also have a statement broach to complete the look.

EleanoraBuntingCupcake Sun 06-Sep-09 19:05:12

yes her real name is sandra but she calls herself mya

MarshaBrady Sun 06-Sep-09 19:05:31

lol at moondog

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 06-Sep-09 19:05:45

If I'd paid £179 for a cardi I wouldn't be standing in the potting shed wearing it.

EleanoraBuntingCupcake Sun 06-Sep-09 19:06:22

i have a gorgeous purple enormous cardie that all my woman friends love. dh (how normally never comments on my clothing ) refuses to be seen with me and says i look like a womble.

moondog Sun 06-Sep-09 19:06:24

Yes yeas to you all grin

AnyFucker Sun 06-Sep-09 19:07:06

moondog, that is very funny (and sooooo true)
