Early in the morning mum asked me if a surprise parcel from her had arrived in the flat. Sadly not yet, I replied and I though the delay might be due to the busy period over Christmas. Minutes later and before I had sipped a bit of my coffee the postman rang the bell, delivering a parcel from Greece!
I quickly opened the box to find two lovely handmade knitted beanies, one for me and one for my boyfriend, made with much love from mum. With tears in my eyes I called mum back to tell her that the parcel had finally reached its destination and that my green beanie with the orange pom pom is the most beautiful I had ever seen in my life!
I quickly got dressed in matching colours, pairing the beanie with my new grey cardigan from Damart, a UK based company that makes the most comfortable pieces of clothing, and run out for a coffee with my friend Vasileia.
The beanie made my outfit outstand with its colours in such a degree that I got stopped in the street and was asked where did I get it from and how much did it cost me. Lesson learned, next time I walk down the streets with Natbee’s Etsy shop business cards, in case people would be wondering where I bought my bobble hat.
Do you love beanies as much as I do?
