no 1: lopi sweater my sister jenah sent me. she wore it for their family christmas photo and said the itchiness drove her bananas. it's pretty itchy so layering is required, but i couldn't love it more!
no 2: vintage cabled cardigan my mother in law bought for me at the magical thrift store - the label reads "100% virgin acrylic" which made us laugh. ooo, exquisite!
no 3: a pure wool norwegian sweater also found at the m.t.s. fjord fashion by a. s. evebøfoss
no 4: handknit cabled sweater, thrifted from the magical thrift store
no 5: another handknit lopi, bought secondhand.
most of my favorite sweaters are the ones i didn't knit. my closet is full of them and it's hard not to hope for cooler weather whenever i see them in stacks on the shelves. some of them are handmade, some are machine knit, but all have been bought second-hand or have been given to me by the people i love.
a beautiful knit sweater always makes me want to pick up the needles.
