And that's how you take a jacket off. And then you can just hold it like so: *
THIS sweater. I LOVES it. Seriously, love with an S. That's how I feel. Sometimes I bring it into bed with me; and we snuggle. The husband got it for me for Valentine's Day (yes, that stupid day that no one who is IN a relationship cares about but is somehow very important when you are NOT in a relationship and in the end, for me, is just an excuse to get a present).
A little more about the jacket: it's more of a sweater. A sweater jacket. It's 100% wool, hand spun, hand knitted. The wool isn't over-processed so it retains a lot of its original lanolin making it water-proof. And it's really really warm. It's called a Cowichan Sweater (made by the Cowichan native people on the island I live on...now you can use your smarts and figure out what island I live on). Mine is fun because it is hand numbered and registered and not a cheap knock-off (not that I don't like cheap things...I do...but in this case real is better).
Anyway...because you wanted to know ALL about the sweater. I know you did. I just have wanted one forever! And you know how that is? Like a Chanel 2.55. I want one. One day. I told my husband to get me one for my fortieth.
We are going to have to start saving tomorrow.
ps. I totally got this Gap sweater for 12 bucks. And then I looked under all the sticky price tags to see the original price: 64.95. I think 64.95 for this sweater is a lot of bullsh__t.
pps: I'm smiling at my children in the photos. Baby Violet seemed especially pleased that I was having my picture taken.

*actually, it took a bit to figure out how to hold it. Holding sweaters is not my forte.
