Women's Heart Sweater
I had the idea for this jumper a couple of Valentine's Days ago and wore it when I attempted to kiss Anne Diamond on TV-am for no less than three minutes and five seconds. I wanted to break the record for the longest screen kiss currently held by Jane Wyman and Regis Toomey whose osculatory marathon is the high point of the 1940 film You're In the Army Now, Anne and I might have made the record books had our attempt not been abruptly interrupted by live coverage of President Brezhnev's state funeral in Moscow.

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.
