Our correspondent for Russian jumpers spotted this contemporary knit in the Tsvetnoy shopping centre in Moscow. See? Russians don’t just beat up gays. They also look great while doing it! And in case you were wondering, Scandi Knits in Russian is скандинавские свитеры. You weren’t? OK neither were we.
This, our festive friends, is a celebration of life and knit. Everything in this photo is wonderful, especially our heroine Emma, who is very awkwardly kneeling on the floor while everyone else stands. Reasons? We can’t be sure. It’s tough to pick a favourite among these knits (even the rug is kind of Christmassy) but if we had to… we’d say Mr Penguin gets 1st Prize. We feel sorry for the lady at the back in green antlers. Talk about getting the cold shoulder.
Standing in front of popular literary classics Psycho-Analysis and FREUD, the eminent Dr. Russell is sporting a wildly intricate knitted jumper bought in New York. We think it’s a real crowd-pleaser, but what would Freud say? He’d probably tell us we have some sort of knitted fetish, but hey – that’s not our fault. Blame mummy.
Jim stands tall above his friends. With his striking knitted plumage, he is the alpha male of this slightly awkward group. Where did Jim find such a strong, earthy cover for his rugged body? “At a big knit jumble sale. I got 5 jumpers for 20 quid.” Well done, Jim, well done.
Sean is sporting a dead seal. Oh, that and an ace festive knit from Lyle and Scott. Liggy is wearing a sexy knitted hat from Gap Kids, because she’s actually 9 (the camera adds 15 years). Taken on Sommarøy, in Northern Norway.
