Winter Wardrobe

Lately, I have been contemplating Christmas and all that goes with it. I'm thinking about putting my tree up, and I am already decorating it in my head...getting every ornament in its exactly-right-place. I'm wondering how many more gifts I need to knit before December 25th. I'm drooling over the cookies and candy I will eat much to think about! You know what else I've got floating around up there in my brain? A little conversation I had last went like this:

Mork: Mom, I need an ugly Christmas sweater by tomorrow. Can you knit one?
Me: I will not knit an UGLY sweater (on purpose).
Dollface: What about all those ones in your closet, Mom?
Me: ???
Mork: Well, or like that one you're wearing?
Ba-dum-bump, Ching!

Forgive me if you've heard that already, but it IS still pretty funny! For the record, I did not knit him a sweater, ugly or otherwise. Also for the record, I have not disowned either of them. And just so you know, I am currently re-thinking my winter wardrobe, wondering how many of my festive frocks are, in reality, ugly Christmas Sweaters...sigh!

What do you think? Do they all go? I mean, I love the cheesy sweaters and sweatshirts...yes, I do. I'm keeping them. After all, everything eventually comes around to become fashionable again, right? Eventually? Right?!?

In any case, there will be knitting. I think I even have a sweater's worth of red in my stash, so perhaps I will knit myself a little something more subtle, but still festive. :) But, and I cannot stress this enough, I will never knit an UGLY sweater (on purpose)! Of course, I have knit one or two accidentally, but let's not dwell on that.

Do you have any Christmas Sweater Stories that you'd be willing to share? If your answer is no, maybe it's time for you to start knitting! lol! I crack me up!

Whatever you are knitting this holiday season, I hope that you will Knit in Good Health!

  1. Years ago, I bought one that had a swan surrounded by a wreath on a bright red cotton sweater, with a little bow on the swan with beads. The tag said dry clean only, and being new to such things at the time that's where I sent it.

    The plastic beads melted into mush and the drycleaner was horrified. The tag was wrong. This was the manufacturer's fault. I should demand my money back from wherever I bought it, and they were so sorry.

    It wasn't her fault and I told her maybe that's why Costco had it for $15, no worries.

    I think I still have it somewhere. And now with my head injury, that shade of red makes my balance bonkers. It's a size small or medium, I forget which, but if you need an ugly sweater that one didn't used to be, but it qualifies now, I guess.
