I quite like to think of the interwebs as a treasure trove, brimming with potential and hope and kooky weirdness.
So when a dear colleague yelled out to me across the office today, I was tingling with excitement. Has a celebrity named their offspring after an exotic Himalayan fruit, I pondered? Or has Hizzleswift confirmed their romance on social media with a pash snap? Or could it be that my favourite Bach alum – a cult icon Bach alum – has pledged an almighty allegiance to “five ply Merino wool”?
Yes, oh yes. It was the latter. Laurina Fleure, AKA the sassy queen who I have fallen in love with after watching The Bachelor AND I’m A Celeb, modelling “free classic cardigan” patterns for AusPinners.
Of course, given that Laurina's positively gorgeous and has better skin than I did as a newborn, she's somehow managed to look freakin' fantastic in the advert, too. Which - just quietly - should be impossible given she's wearing a button-down burgundy knit that my nana would wear to Sunday church.
Judging by Laurina's glam insta I get the impression she doesn't wear that delightful cardi outside of work.. Post continues after gallery...
