Women's Snake Sweater
Snakes alive! Life is a game of snakes and ladders. As you climb the ladder of success - in life, in love, in style - keep your snake on side, wrap that snake around you! I like to think this sweater represents the ultimate temptation in knitwear and I want to reassure you that this bright-eyed serpent while noted for a wicked sense of humour has an essentially loving heart.

Gyles Brandreth -- a writer, entertainer, broadcaster, and sometime Member of British Parliament -- is also a former European Monopoly champion and founder of an award-winning teddy bear museum. In addition to all of these endeavours, he is also well-known throughout Britain for the colourful knitwear he has worn on television for more than forty years. In the early 1980s, he teamed up with George Hostler -- an artist and sculptor turned legendary knitwear designer -- to create a range of unique jumpers featuring bright colours, original designs, witty words, and trompe l’oeil images. Over the years, Gyles and George conjured up scores of individual jumpers – worn by personalities as varied as Elton John and Diana, Princess of Wales – and produced three books featuring their free-spirited and wholly individual patterns.
