Wait, Let Me Grab My Cardigan . . .

How many times have you said that?
About umpteen-gazillion, right?

Here's my most beloved Cardigan that is circa 1977, I think.

...bless it's heart, look at the neck edge and the cuff...

Yes, this is sad, but yes, I still wear it.
I know, gross, right? 
I keep meaning to cover the edges with leather or something.
I know I will one day just to keep from throwing it away.

Speaking of CARDIGAN, have you seen this?

I might even wear the sparkly shorts!

Lynne says, "The cardigan is a subconscious essential in every woman's wardrobe. Its utility is limitless. It's the item you take on a plane, throw in a bag or keep on the back of your office chair. A CARDIGAN can change an outfit in an instant, dress you up or dress you down and, most of all, keep you warm. It can be worn as a sweater, jacket, suiting or outerwear. There's the everyday staple, the beat up favorite [see, everybody has one] and the one we wish we could replicate [same as before mentioned favorite] or buy instantaneously in every color. CARDIGANS are timeless and sentimental. We all have a bunch in our closets that have been there for years - holes and all -   because we just can't seem to give them up.[mine is total living proof!] They're reliable, cozy and help us hang onto our best memories, and we can always justify the need for another."

Well now, Lynne, I couldn't have said it better myself!

Lynne Hiriak's line is more than CARDIGANS though,
I'm dying for this sweatshirt dress...

and I don't think I've ever met a polka dot I didn't love...

sparkle too!?

This my dear readers, is why I knit!
You can't have everything...where would you put it?

I guess I can't make everything either, so I need a little sale...
