Once upon a time, way back in 2009, my sister asked my husband for some sweater recon a few weeks before Christmas time. Then I was packing for our trip to Indy and was deciding which sweaters to bring. I was thinking about bring this one. John asked in a very accusatory manner "What is that?" while pointing at my sweater drawer. "My sweater drawer?" I was confused. "You have TWO sweater drawers??" "um, yeah... they don't all fit in one." I had no idea what the issue was, but he was acting super weird.
On Christmas morning, I opened the present from my sister, and it was the sweater I am wearing in today's pictures. And then they told me the whole story. She had asked him if I had a "green argyle sweater" and he searched in my one sweater drawer, confirming that I did not. And then at the very last minute, he saw my green argyle sweater in my sneaky second drawer, and was very worried.
The good news is that these 2 sweaters aren't really similar at all. One is all green, one is mostly gray with a little bit of green. One is lighter with 3/4 sleeves. One is wool and long-sleeve. So there was no great crisis. And besides, I have since gotten rid of that other sweater, but I still have this one.
I realized that some of my favorite cozy sweaters never make it to the blog, because I tend to wear them on super cold snowy days with just jeans and boots, and I don't always get pictures on those days, of those kind of boring outfits.
