sweater season.

i've been known - like many of you i'm sure - to get lost in the magical cyber shopping world known as etsy. and today, thanks to the many lovely crafters out there, my virtual closet has been filled with warm, cozy, handknit masterpieces.

some of my favorites...

how yummy is this raspberry color?!

and i just love these major cables.

see? contrary to popular belief, a giant aztec wool sweater CAN be sexy. thank you, marilyn.

um, so this is heaven, in knit form. i mean, a giant cream colored hood - what could be better?

so, now that i have lured you into this cable knit heaven, i think now is the time that i should also let you all in on my little secret....so here it is...as you know, i have many loves in life (mr. frederickson, butternut squash, the cold side of the pillow, pinics, anything by kate spade) but my love for the giant sweater surpasses them all.

you know the sweater i mean - the giant almost cocoon like creation that engulfs your whole being and makes you feel tiny and warm all at once, even on the chilliest of vermont days. although, i must admit, at times this obsession has caused tension and lead to slight depression (i.e. the shapeless gray turtleneck circa winter 2005 - 2008) however, thanks to the beauties above, i have good faith that this winter i will master the art of being slightly stylish without giving up an ounce of warmth.

so, happy sweater season to you all! make it a great one, i know i will.

I just stumbled across your blog a few days ago and I can't believe I haven't found it sooner. Love this. LOVE sweaters. There's nothing that makes you feel quite so at ease than a favorite sweater (even if it has to be relegated to an "around-the-house-only" sweater). :-) Cheers from a fellow VT'er!

That Marilyn Monroe looked good in just about anything!
