I got the coolest sweater for Christmas
from my daughter’s boyfriend.
I’ve never seen another one like it.
It is long in the back to my calves.
Short as a vest in the front
that can be worn two ways.
Closed, the vested front
looks like a fringed V-neck.
Open, it looks like large fringed lapels.
My sweater has long sleeves
that are  black, ringed in different colors.
Each color is a different weave of only a few rows,
separated by wider bands of black.
The sweater is fringed in long threads.
The colors are soft; blue, gray, green and burnt orange.
The stripes run vertical down the front and back.
These vertical stripes help to hide my growing assets.
The sweater is snazzy; it has flash and pizazz.
I feel confident and pretty when I wear it.
Someone said it was “so me”.
To which I replied,
“You mean loud and obnoxious?!”
We had a good laugh.

For a while there, Miss Lori, that sweater sounded like something I once saw Groucho Marx wearing in 'Animal Crackers'!

Keep an eye on that boyfriend...he's lookin' for an inheritance chest!

Sounds pretty!  I'm sure you're quite the fashion plate when you wear it

Bluesy and Pinkyknitter,
Thanks for giving me a read. My sweater is just awesome. Groucho would have tried it on and strutted with lapels out. LOL ~L
