On chilly days when I don’t feel like ironing, there is nothing better than a handknit sweater- vest. It helps what would otherwise be an ordinary pairing of tee shirt and jeans become a forcefield against brutal weather and a fashion statement in your favorite color. For this, I chose the natural Irish Aran wool that kept its sheep warm until shearing time.
