A lot of them are 'ladies in waiting'! Some get worn more! As single ply (yarn) sweaters become hopelessly pulled, they become 'bathrobes' and 'bed sweaters'! I've given away lots of sweaters that I didn't wear as much as I thought I would. Three of my granddaughters are now the proud owners of some real beauts! And one of my BFF's has a couple. I gave them away BEFORE they became trashed, when they were still nice. Two of them were never worn by me, and I knit them for myself. But they looked better on my granddaughters than on me. They had to borrow a sweater each to go to a Pacific.Northwest version of Stitches with me, to the Yarn Market. I let them go into my sweater room and choose a sweater each. By the time we came home I realized these sweaters were 'meant for them'! Oh my. The yarn for each cardigan was about $100, maybe more. I don't want to know. But they have a mother who takes excellent care of fine Knits. I'm happy to share!

The link below shows them in their sweaters! And me in my Faery Ring Hoodie.
