Twelve Days of Joy: Seven Singing Sweaters

My family is originally from Ireland. Traditionally each Irish family would have its own stitch and pattern for the sweaters that they wore. Hopefully some day I can trace my lineage enough to find out what our sweaters look like. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find out we have Scottish heritage also and there’s a tartan I can overuse and monogram to my hearts content.

Fairisle has been making a comeback this year, it seems like it’s everywhere. There’s something about skiing and the mountains that make you want to wear snowflakes on your sweater, so I was actually ahead of this trend with my collection of fairisle that I started in Colorado (check out my J.Crew Fair Isle Half-Button Sweater from last winter on People Style Watch sponsored by Cotton). So here’s my list of seven sing-worthy sweaters that might make you think twice about ugly Christmas sweaters.

      Thanks Kristine! Not always the easiest thing to find 🙂 Really I just want to snuggle into one of these on my couch with my puppy and watch Christmas movies all day!
