    I love sweaters, too, but I don’t have good luck with them. They seem to get caught on the zipper of my purse or anything anywhere that’s small and sticking out. It seems like my sweater sleeves are always catching on something and pulling the threads out. Grrrr. I’ve never worn a sweater belt, so I’m not sure what the problem is. I hope somebody comments about it!

    I think it’s amazing you’ve been wearing that Hunter Green sweater since 1996 and love it enough to keep sewing it!

    Of the sweaters in the video, the ones I wouldn’t care to wear are the long, long gray one, the one with the heart shaped opening in the back (I don’t like drafts – LOL) and the short off white one. I hate the itchy sweaters, too, but nice, soft, comfy sweaters are wonderful!

      Hi, Lynn…
      Nothing like replying seventeen days late. I’ve caught many a sweater on a zipper or something sticking out – like Jasper’s claw when he’s sacked out on an end table. The little turkey seems to live for opportunities to reach out and swipe at someone. Not to be mean. At least I don’t think it is. I think it’s just his way of having fun and reminding us he’s not had any attention recently. 😀

      Sweater belts… Okay. When you tie them behind the sweater to keep them out of the way, sometimes you don’t make the bow big enough, leaving tails that are too long for those times when you forget to take the sweater off when you visit the ladies room. Long sweater belts and toilets aren’t a match made in heaven so it’s just … better … to get rid of the belt. 😀

      Yeah, I wasn’t very impressed with the heart shaped cutout in that one sweater either. What’s the point of wearing one if your back and shoulders are going to be cold?

    Lol, I love wearing old sweaters! Mind you, my sweater wearing season is not as long as yours Kristy. But there’s something comforting about those old sweaters. During our last move, I finally had to say goodbye to a fav. It was a midnight blue turtleneck chenille that I had bought for a trip to Europe from J. Jill during the mid nineties. It wasn’t that it didn’t fit anymore. It just wore out. I still miss it. You cannot replace these sentimental pieces. *sigh*

      No, you definitely can’t replace the sentimental pieces of clothing. While I was recuperating from a C-section, a friend took a couple of loads of laundry home. When she brought it back, I found that she’d ‘ruined’ my favorite, well worn flannel nightgown. Another one of those things you just can’t throw out because you love it so much. The elbows of the sleeves were torn to the point that they weren’t actually there anymore. So she kindly cut them off, hemmed it, and turned it into a short-sleeved nightgown. I never wore it again. What I loved so much about it was gone.

      Weird, hmm?
