Built For Comfort


I won't be sashaying down the catwalk in this one. It is decidedly built for comfort. I also take comfort from reviewing the pictures in the Rowan Plaid Collection and noting that it is the nature of the designs to be oversized in all respects, including the sleeves. I'm just not sure that it's the best look on me. That being said, I do love wearing it! It is extremely soft, comfortable, and warm to wear and that is exactly what I was going for! Mr Puffy kindly said that he likes how I look in it. He's so sweet. Tomorrow he gets an extra long walk!


Mr Puffy is not the only one who is sweet. Just when I was wondering how I was going to close the front without any buttons my good friend Bridget from The Ravell'd Sleave serendipitously sent me a beautiful glass shawl closure that is absolutely perfect. Thank you Bridget!!!!!

Design: Raindrop; 7 Skeins Rowan Plaid ~ Sea Thistle ~ (42% Merino Wool; 30% Acrylic; 28% Superfine Alpaca); US 10.5 and US 11 needles.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas. We spent a wonderful day with my parents and my sister and her family. This is a picture of Mr Puffy enjoying my parent's Christmas tree. He is so spoiled by my parents that he departs with some reluctance. As do we all.

I really like your sweater! Sometimes comfort is the way to go. I have a few big ole sweaters that don't burn up the fashion pages, but I still love 'em. They are comfy and toasty ... like a snuggly hug.

The tree is wonderful. What amazes me is, that you wear a turtle neck, and a warm sweater, but you are sitting at the beach in sandals! ;o)
(I have no business sitting at the PC, with ringing ears, and cold sweat, but I can't stay away for too long.)

We all need a sweater like that - comfy, cozy and not fussy. Nice work!

Happy New Year, too!

That sweater is gorgeous and looks great on you and that look is in. What a background too. It's 10 degrees here and I am getting ready to go out and plow. It's also windy but at least the sun is poking it's head out now and then so I don't get too depressed about the prospect. Mr Puffy is such a cutey!

The sweater is lovely. Is the pin from Moving Mud? It's very similar to a pin I have. Hope you enjoy wearing both the sweater & pin.

I'm just catching up (at last) on my blog reading, and I love the sweater! Nice colors, and it looks truly comfy.

The pin looks great on it, and I'm so glad that you like it - it just made me think of you when I saw it ...

Mr Puffy + Christmas tree = the true spirit of Christmas!
