With those tiny hands ? I don't know.

Speaking of tiny hands, it's cold enough that I need to start dressing in layers to stay warm. My wife pointed out a sweater she got for me last year that I had yet to wear. With the exception of a sweater I used to wear at work to keep from freezing to death and a really nice one a college friend gave me because he shrunk it in the wash, I've never been a fan.

This one though? It's changed my mind. Homemade sweaters must be nice, but there's something to be said about modern textile methods. This thing has yarn so small the only way it could be knitted is either A) machine or B) the tiny hands of an angel. I've been wearing it all day. I'm a convert. I now love sweaters.

Kind of creepy that I'm literally browsing men's sweater patterns to knit on ravelry right now. I found a cardigan and the model for it actually looks very similar to the guy I would be making it for. Today is an odd day.

I love sweaters, it's cold enough at work that I get to wear them for longer and I'm getting significantly less scrapes on my arms.

Nah. Not creepy. Fall is perfect sweater weather. Flannel shirt weather too, but I wear those all year round. I actually have a not so secret love for tartan patterns and I probably have about 20 flannel shirts.
