Don’t Be A Knit-Wit… #KnitwearCareClub

I’ve been so excited about that punny title for ages. Seriously, I’m super lame, aren’t I?

Recently, the fab George at ASDA people got in touch to talk all things knitwear. Alright, I know, it’s still pretty warm but now we’re in September, the slightly colder months will be upon us faster than you can say ‘wonderful wooly winter warmers’.

I don’t actually own all that much knitwear. I’m quite fussy about it, as I worry that bad fitting ones make me look like a fluffy blob. Good job George had me covered, eh?

A classic striped jumper is probably in pretty much all wardrobes up and down the land, but I didn’t actually have one myself. UNTIL NOW. Enter the Ribbed Cold Shoulder Jumper*, which costs a measly £12. Bargain. And ohhhh, just how cute is it?! I really love the cold shoulder detail on this one, it gives a simple jumper a bit more excitment to it,

My tip? If you need to hang your knits up, use a padded hanger so they don’t lose their shape. Plus, cute padded hangers look a million times better than mismatched black plastic ones from every shop in Westfield. Aka half my wardrobe. HA.

Some of the other tips bloggers shared on the post are actually pretty new to me. I’m usually a ‘chuck it all in the wash at once’ type, but Lyndsay‘s advice to always take notice of the care label is a good’un. And if you’re having severe bobble issues but don’t fancy leaving the house to buy one of those de-bobbling gadget, Charlotte‘s idea of using a disposable razor instead is pretty genius.

I paired my jumper with some of George’s black Wonderform skinny jeans*. Considering how everyone reacts when I wear jeans (I think I’ve worn a pair maybe…three times…this year), I’m so impressed with them. Comfy as hell, easy to wear with anything and they make my legs look like I’ve been down at the gym for weeks non-stop.

Make sure you check out the full post of blogger and expert knitwear tips! What would be your top tip for keeping knits in good nick?

*I was kindly sent some bits and pieces from George, including a brand new knit, to write this post!

    I love shopping at George – Asda, they always have some great bargains! This jumper is gorgeous. I’m so ready for jumpers and boots ☺️

  • I never thought about using padded hangers for my knitwear. Like you I rarely wear jumpers, I just don’t find them comfortable to wear x

  • Francesca Nelson

    Hahaha I love the punny title too!! I actually have a lot of knitwear its my fave!!! I LOVE this jumper on you and love that its a cold shoulder too looks lush and you look beaut in th photo!

  • I love this jumper on you and I also love that it’s still available in my size. I have hunners of black and white stripy tops but how many of them are winter-specific? THAT’S RIGHT NONE OF THEM. Getting it bought.

  • I love this jumper, will definitely have to pop to Asda! I too am lacking in the stripey jumper department. The thought of taking a razor to knitwear makes me gag though – it’s like the blackboard noise, blech.

    Great jumper and Asda George do have some great stuff for Women, but I don’t feel it has the same offering for us men.

  • Bex Smith

    That jumper is lovely! I love George, I find their stuff such good quality at such affordable prices!

  • Jessica

    The price will not make you guilty. The George’s black Wonderform skinny jeans are stunning too! 🙂

  • I love the stripy jumper and it’s such a bargain too! I don’t take good enough care of my knitwear and I really should, the padded hanger is such a good tip! x

  • So cute – you’re a far better model than me! My post tomorrow has far less sultry, pretty poses.
