Crushing on Chunky Sweaters

I have a crush, please don't tell my husband! I have a serious, unbridled crush on this, and every single other, chunky sweater.  Since my old thermostat has switched from always being hot to always being cold I can actually wear them now (if you have no idea what I'm talking about, don't worry you will some day). 

Due to the dampness, Pacific Northwest winters can chill you to the bone so layers work best. A lovely chunky sweater can help keep the spirit and body warm. Snuggle up, it's cold outside!

Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories.

When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
Welcome wool sweaters.

  9. I love chunky sweaters. My mama used to make them for us, I had several new ones each year. Sadly she lost the ability to knit and crochet and nothing is up to her standards that can find.I am always slightly disappointed when I put one on now. These are all beautiful, makes me want to try again...
