Last week I swung through my local K-Mart to pick up a couple of their long sleeved cotton tees. I like them for layering under blazers and sweaters for work, or for snuggling on a cool day, and wanted to get the pick of the new colors in my size range when they first came out.
After picking up 2 different colors, I looked around a little bit more, and then I looked up - and there they were!!!
Cardigan sweaters! Not just any cardigan sweaters - but PERFECT cardigan sweaters...
Cardigan sweaters like I have been searching for forever...
Well - not forever - but since around 1989 I think - when I had my last favorite cardigan and wore it to threads.
They had to meet the following criteria:
1. mostly or all cotton
2. no zipper
4. sleeves that fit my large upper arms and over another shirt comfortably
5. sleeves that were not super duper past my fingertips long
8. good basic versatile colors with no major embellishments
9. machine wash/tumble dry
I don't ask for much, do I? I nearly took up knitting just to get my perfect cardigan.
I bought 2 - black and coffee bean.
I may go back... it is not often that I can find perfection!
And now that the weather has turned cool and damp - it is perfect cardigan weather.
They just came out of the dryer - is it wrong to want to wear one to bed? :-)
