…keeps Old Man Winter away? Something like that.
Now that it’s officially Winter, it feels right and appropriate to share with you some sweaters I’ve been saving up for when the weather finally began to get cold where I live. (Those of you in the Southern Hemisphere should feel free to follow along, but of course you should also feel free to enjoy wearing shorts and flip-flops while you’re at it.) Now, please don’t get the idea that I’ll be presenting a new sweater here every single day. That would suggest far too much organization on my part, in spite of the title of this little series of short-and-sweet posts I’m planning. But I do have several lined up that I think are worth sharing, and I’ll be doing that, one at a time, for a while, until I feel like moving on to something else.
The first sweater to be drawn (more or less) randomly from my inventory folder is Guapo Hansome’s College Bound Cardigan. This entirely respectable bad boy is just right forÂ returning to campus after winter breakâ€”the fabric texture (which appears to be photo-sourced, with hand-drawn shading) includes a fictional but realistic college logo patch. Sculpted collar, cuffs, andÂ bottom hem are all resize-scripted. The bottom he section is nicely shaped, and I had no difficulties with fitting, although I did need to dive back into my inventory for my “butt size zero” shape. (If you don’t already keep handy a separate shape with butt size set to zero, for occasions just such as this, I strongly recommend doing so.) The set also includes a simple tee (white, but tintable)â€”plain enough that I can’t imagine wearing it on its own, but it’s perfect for layering like this. My only beef is relatively minor: the buttons on the sculpted bottom section are part of the fabric texture, not prim components, and they’re stretched a bit out of true. This is visible on the vendor artwork, but still it’s worth a mention. It won’t at all affect my enjoyment of the sweater.
