Late entry

Downloaded from Fox Searchlight's Flickr account.

Without doubt, if Best Knits were an Oscar category, Notes on a Scandal would be the runaway victor. At a certain point, I realised I was mentally reciting a list, trying to keep track of an inventory of garments worn by Sheba Hart, the character played by Cate Blanchett. There was a chunky vest not dissimilar to Jo Sharp’s Ultra Vest in Knit 1. A striped fairisle vest in camel and red that brought to mind Jane’s lovely one. A cabled cardigan in a chunky silvery blue mohair. A lace scarf. A crocheted scarf. And these were just the ones that looked handmade.
