I had a little hiccup with my post for today, so instead here’s Daniel Day Lewis on a recent W cover wearing pretty much the perfect gansey sweater. Actually, pretty much the perfect outfit — more photos of it all here. It’s apparently his own gansey, not a designer piece brought to set by the stylist, which makes me love it even more and want to know the specifics of its origins. Given his whole M.O. in life, I’m guessing it’s legit. Did anyone read the interview — did they discuss it? Inquiring minds want to know!
Either way, these photos make me want to knit one more than ever. (Thx, Robin!)
