Grey Mohair Sweater (2019)
This sweater was a Christmas present from my husband in 2016. He doesn’t normally buy clothes for me. I used to wear it at work but then it got so well worn and became too shabby for work. So now I wear it at home to get comfy in. I will often put it on at the end of the day with pajama bottoms. It’s developed very thin elbows, possibly from leaning forward on my desk at work. I want to keep wearing it before it gets too damaged and am excited to see a mark of repair. I had thought about mending it myself. The last time I wore it was quite recently, at home. A significant memory around this sweater is that I had knee surgery immediately after getting it and then I wore it daily, throughout my recovery. I associate it with that period of recovery.
